Would you folks recommend moving these seedlings to my grow tent? Presently they are on a heating pad with a humidity dome. I am thinking they might do better from now on with a little more air movement around them.

Well, by now you've probably already made a move on this and I'm no great sarr seedling grower but I would probably gradually vent the dome and let them acclimate to slightly lower humidity a bit at a time. Do you have a small fan running to create a slight air movement around the plant area?

What else is in the grow tent? I just started using a 24x24x36 grow tent for germinating and my indoor greenhouse after seedlings have had several weeks in grow tent. Not sure if it makes a difference or not but I have not killed any, yet.

I've got a 48x24x24 grow tent. I've laid it on it's side so that I have a 48x24 area for my seed trays. Since I'm only doing seeds and low plants, I don't need 48 inches in height.

Same as I use mine for. However, I have a 3 shelf rack that is 14x24x34. Fits perfectly. I can place my trays at different heights depending on what I am germinating. Then I still have room in front for anything that gets too tall for the shelves.

Thanks, and that is what I was thinking about doing. I do have a fan running intermittently and a heating mat plus a humidifier. I was thinking about increasing their open air access about an hour a day.

I have several other Nepenthes varieties, and that is about it.

Mine is 2’x2’ wide and 3’ tall, but all of the plants in it are rather small. I hope they outgrow it in the future…
