What are those humidifiers you are using? Also, what did you make the basin out of that hold the water below your plants? Everything looks great by the way. As those grow..you're going to have a jungle in there.

i use two reptifoggers hooked up ot a hygrometer control set to 80% as well as haviing a tray of water with airstones bubbling in it which helps keep moisture in the air.

the table is made of a petroleum based building material that will never rot. i forget the brand name atm but it is about 80 dollars for a sheet the size of a plywood sheet. not cheap but will last a lifetime!

thanks for lookin :)

Diggin the peristome on the izumeae, nice and toothy... Good coloration too on the pitchers. It's cool too see the huge difference between pigmentation on the newly developed and older pitcher.

Nice to see someone else post pics of their N. spathulata X hamata. I suspect that is going to be a really great hybrid when it matures.

thanks, i am very happy with all of the hamata hybrids so far but the spath x hamata seems to be winning the pitcher to leaf size ratio by quite a bit. This makes me very happy :)
