  1. With a move due within next 4-6 weeks I shall be buying a bigger greenhouse for my ever expanding CP collection, and want to move the Nepenthes out of the terrariums and into the greenhouse. So they have more space to grow and vine. I have lighting and regulating humidity sorted but the heating has me stumped. Any help regarding what to use and hints and tips of making a success of it would be greatly appreciated.

    It could be mycelium of a fungus or fungus-like bacterial colony.

    Hints and tips for RO systems.

    I thought it would have been less than 100ppm. I must say I'm very jealous of the 19ppm from the tap too! One thing worth noting though, the lack of dissolved solids in the DI water shouldn't do them any harm and won't rob the plants of minerals. Roots work by osmosis.

    Just put of interest, what would be a 'safe' limit on the ppm?

    Something to think about, I'll see how it goes. I might give it a try anyway and report back.

    Thanks, will do There's a kit available for the system I have to put a second RO membrane on the waste water outlet to increase the water output and decrease waste. Would that be worth doing?

    I've not had anything like that before. I've had a handful of people that don't seem interested I admit but more often than not people take an interest and I get asked loads of questions.
  12. Being as we've had little rain and none in the forecast for the next three weeks at least I've just bought an RO system with a DI filter. Having read other threads on here I see there's a few people with them and I'd like to pick your brains about getting the best out of it. Any helpful hints and tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Where's my rain?

    My water butts are empty and I have about 500L in the IBC tank so I'm OK for a few more weeks but it's getting desperate. This weather has been great for work but not my water supply!
