    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    It very well could be burning. N. rafflesiana is probably the most sensitive lowland plant I have. Very picky about humidity and light levels. It generally needs dappled light and very very good humidity (70-100%)

    It's behind my bical, albomarginata, and reinwardtiana, which are on top of a crate that lets very little light though. The sun comes mostly from a 45 degree angle, so the raff should have PLENTY of shade. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Interesting... I have this experience with my regular raf, which I have to keep in my lowland tank with the bical, but my raf. elongata is incredibly durable. I don't get it. This thing is growing happily in a room where the humidity sometimes drops down to 27% [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] though admitadly I do endevor to keep it over 40%....it has yet to be over 68%. Why the difference between the varieties?
