    Would covering the rack wish some plastic help with the heat? I'm using LED lights so they don't produce much heat.

    I could see where it really wouldn't on account of them not giving off much heat but you haven't anything to lose by trying.

    Bonjour

    these plants grows in the same area ( east asia, australia ) as the nepenthes, so for me their conditions must be the same .

    good light, good air hygrometry, good temperature

    for the light your led 3200k 55w no ? it is a growing light ?

    for the temperature 65-70 (18.5-21 c ) seem too just , 20-30c seems more appropriate all the year

    add peat to your substrate this plant grow in epiphyte on the trunk of the trees

    this one H.papuanum come from new guinea
