    The old thread was starting to get a little unwieldy, so I thought I'd start a new one with some pics I took today as I was watering.

    The ceph and heli: both showing good seasonal growth. The ceph even grew a strong winter leaf.

    The droseras: still doing well, and I think at least one is about to produce gemmae. If I get a bunch I'll let you guys know.

    The intermediate rack: everyone here seems to be doing well.

    Well I think I made a boo boo and burned out the motor. I might get a bigger one.

    Thanks, Razz! A few days ago I noticed something weird on my Heli. I've watched it for a few days, and it turns out it's a flower stalk! I'll put some pics up when it blooms.

    Update on my HL tank. I bought a 12x12x18 ZooMed terrarium that was more than half off on the black Friday say at work. I also just set up my 3" fan. The temp is already starting to go down which is pretty good. I think I need another light on top, 1 doesn't look like its going to cut it. I'm noticing some movement in my N. lowii x muliensis since I put it down in the basement. Also, my N. spectabilis x aristolochioides doesn't look like its doing to bad either. pretty happy about that.
    Question, should I have the top uncovered or mostly covered?

    O and wheres Pappy-dew been at?

    Awesome! I need to set up one of these for the orchids as soon as the light becomes a feasible purchase. Is the plastic attached to the poles in any way? The plants are looking really great! Love the drosera collection. They are such intricate little plants.

    Sounds awesome, Paul! I hope the lowii pulls makes it. I think Pappy's been busy with school and such. I haven't seen him around much in a while.

    Inka... The plastic is basically just taped to the legs of the rack. It works well to keep in humidity and heat.
