    Mike's Highland Terrarium

    My addiction has returned. After quitting CP's (and plants in general) a few years back to put more effort into my other hobby, fish tanks, I decided a few months back that I wanted to get back into CP's (nepenthes in particular) and I've slowly been rebuilding my collection since. The main...

    Seedling Nursery Project

    Hey all, I'll be editing and updating this post this evening as time permits. Recently, I have come into possession of an old 55 gallon aquarium that once housed a massive tetra colony. As I'm not really into fish, I was drunkenly staring at it, and thought, nursery terrarium! So In short...

    Back at it!

    Hey all, Some of you guys might remember me from a little while ago. I took a break and travelled around for a while. I lost my entire collection recently when I left it for a few days during a move and my humidifier malfunctioned during a heat wave. I had some really cool plants and I feel...

    Humidifier suggestions?

    Hey guys, My old humidifier just quit on me and after making the rounds at my local home improvement stores it appears I'm going to have to order one online as most places only had the warm mist ones.

    Good but Cheap Humidifier?

    Hey all. Recently my repti fogger humidifer broke down. Many times I had left it on on the low setting and it turned itself off when the water ran out. I left it on on the high setting, the water ran out, and the humidifier stayed on. When I came back some of the water from the reservoir had...

    Diagnosis help

    Hello, I'm not sure what's going on with a few of my plants and am looking for help or advice. Some look like they have some pest damage and a couple have fairly recent leaves, still with pitchers (at least partly alive), that are drying up from the sides of the leaves. My plants are all grown...

    Nepenthes terrairum - not enough light?

    Hi guys. I have a small "terrarium" (more of a wood box, really) with my Nepenthes there. The terrarium is 2x2x2 feet. I have 2 CFL bulbs (27w and 32W, the lumen output is nowhere to be seen), 1x13W T5 (740 lumen) and 1x36W PLL (1770 lumen). All the lights are 6500k. They are inside the...

    Help: Lights and just about everything else

    I currently have a terrarium setup for highland nepenthes. Everything grows really well for the most part. Although I do not use electronic AC, I think I should get into it (later here). I have various highland plants, however I can confirm that even some of the pickiest plants are doing well...

    Help me with my first tuberous Drosera!

    Alright, so I am now the owner of one tuber each of D. menziesii and D. modesta (because Johnny is awesome!!!) that I have no idea how to properly care for, so the past few days have been spent heavily researching how to keep them alive. I was told that now is the prime time to start these guys...

    Hi everyone, I got into CPs a little over a year ago and have been referencing this and other forums for loads of care information and ideas so I figured it's about time to join in. I grow mostly Nepenthes, but have a few sundews, butterworts, flytraps, a cephalotus and an H. minor. Most of...

    Hi All, I have recently set up a highland tent. I have a window mount AC cut into the side of the tent and a bucket humidifier with 8 single disc pond foggers circulating back and forth from the tent similar to Kyles basement setup.

    Evaporative Humidifier Questions

    We picked up a relatively inexpensive evaporative console humidifier off amazon recently to try to bump up the humidity in our apartment for the winter. We've been hovering around 40-45% typically. I wanted to test out what the humidifier could do so I put the hygrometer about 10ft away and ran...

    Looking for input for a new humidifier

    Recently, my current highland chamber humidifier/misting system broke, and I need advice from successful growers about what I should replace it with. Specifically, I am looking for a system that puts out more of a fog than mist, to allow for higher humidity to be attained without all of the...
