  2. I,m also surprised of the lack of insects that some have had. All my pitchers have rotten due to the overload of insects that they have court. And it didn't half stink the greenhouse out of rotten flesh. I also think its been a great year for the plants fantastic colours. And strong pitchers better then last year.when they suffered due to the lack of sun.

  8. Hi alex. what i use in my highland nep greenhouse's at winter time is a Bio green Black Forest Catalytic Heater 4000A run on propane gas. i,ve never had any problems or lost any neps in the winter time. also you can set the temps night times 10c and in the daytime 25c. The only problem is finding some where safe to store the propane bottles.
