So im thinking of getting a nepenthes aristolochioides and inermis and i am aware that these are not easy plants to grow and i am willing to spend extra cash on the HL chamber, can anyone tell me the specifics of this HL chamber such as humidity, temp, light, etc. thank you for all your help
To stay cheap, and to keep things simple as a first set up, just get yourself a 10 gallon aquarium, an led grow light with a PAR between 1.2 and 4k, and an ultrasonic mister. Personally, I keep the lid open during the day and let the mister circulate air/humidity, close it at night to bump it up to 85-90%, and some of the touchier species like mikei are flourishing in that. Lining the bottom with washed montmorillonite/hydroballs will help with some keeping some moisture in as well, and you can throw live sphagnum on top of that to really add to the cooling. If possible, keep in near a North or East facing window, a little natural light on the sides of the plant is super beneficial, but you don't want the glass tank in the sunlight for longer than an hour so as to avoid heating it up. Keeping the temps below 85 during the day should be easy enough if kept in the house, and getting the drop to the 50-60s at night just requires a lot of moisture and air movement. Some people go so far as to put it in an unheated room during the Winter, so it really depends on your housing set-up. If you do go for the unheated room, place a light-duty heating mat under the tank and just turn it off at night(this works best if you have substrate under the pots). Until you start to mess with species like villosa, lamii or edwardsiana I wouldn't worry about an actual icebox rig. Good luck in your growing!
