the great thing living here is we do not have to worry about snow or freezing our plants at any time , yer sure they get cold in winter , but in the green house its very reasonable , we don't get temps that go below zero at any time in winter , being in a temperate zone is the best out side of the high land Borneo climate for neps other than subtropical ,I think most people would be quite shocked if they saw first hand how much light these neps acutally get in the wild , is why i do not use any shade cloth at all !!
so my interpretation of growing conditions will vary much from most that live where snow and below 0 temps occurs, I go for the way i see it in Borneo , when i go there to study these plants , and try to emulate that condition here in my green house , is why i get the results i do!!.
as for fert's you have it right no ureas is best for neps , i use focus , full strength , no need to dilute it , and you don't need to flush your plant out after fertilizing too there is no need the plant will use the food as it need it , good air flow will increase the absorption of nutrients naturally if you know how
they feed !! but in that you need a good watering program too, ,mine get misting from 7.30am to 6.30 pm very 2 hours for aproxx 3 to 4 min each day , pluss hand watering evey day,to plants or the lot as required , ,for humidity ,watering , and high evaperation rate from the huge air flow i have in the green house.
