I'm looking at building a greenhouse, and an unheated one, so looking at different grades of poly carbonate for insulation.

Some of them are around the 70 - 60% mark for light and heat transmission, others are at 80%, and some still are at 50%.

So I was just wondering how nepenthes would go at 50% shade all day? Or what I should consider for lighting with the greenhouse?

I had originally considered around 70% light and heat, clear coloured, and 30% shade cloth over the top for summer.

Cheers.
