if ya do decide to use salt water in the bottles, be very careful when you fill them. you must keep the saltwater on the inside or drops of salt left on the bottles could mix with the plant water and harm your plants!
Are the fan and humidifier at all times? I suggest you make some sort of opening so the fan can suk in cool air from the outside of the tank, otherwise you are just cecirculating hot air. I also suggest you stick the humidity tube right in front of the fan.
@Sarr21: Yeah I was going through my entire house trying to find something that would hold my neps above the water. Found some legos in a brothers closet 3 frozen waterbottles cool down the tank to about 54-55 degrees. And thanks, I was going insane trying to find a truncata. Had to settle for a LL one but am still happy with it
@Sundrew: Nope haven't done it yet. I think im going to stick with the regular unsalted water. Why change if its already working great? But thanks for suggesting that method to me anyways
Nice tank. I look forwad to seeing it grow.
And, IMHO, ceph are really easy. The nursery I ordered it from sent it to me by accident, and never asked for it back. So grew it, and it is still going strong after 4 months.
However, both the VFTs I bought did very badly are are dying a slow death. The cephalotus grows faster than any of my CPs, inculding the D. capensis.
