NEW Nepenthes highland chamber pics 2013

Hey everyone here are some pics of my new highland chamber.

I love this chamber because I can control the temp to whatever I like.

Day time temps are: 75-77F Night time cools down to 55-60D

Light: 6 t5 hydro lights

Humidity is good, its around 60% to 80%

It has a misting and fogging system which is nice.

Please let me know what you guys think :)

NO more frozen water jugs.... thank god lol

COuld you give us a basic rundown?
Looks super!
Wire man I'm not sure if I understand what more of a run down you would like? :)
I'm mainly interested in how you attached the cooling device and what materials you used, and how you have everything wired and timed.
The ac is just attached with shower curtains and Velcro and white tape... Very simple

The misters come on every hour for 20 sec

Fogger is on only during the day

Lights come on around 10am to 10pm

Hope that helps..
That helps a lot, thanks! I'll probably install an evaporative cooler under my terrarium and pipe in the cooler air through the top.
Good I'm glad! :) you should I'm happy I did it now I can grow any nepenthes I want... Which is awesome!
