Correction, it's a 200W heater. I don't think a 100W heater can keep up 
with the heat loss.

Here are some photos I took of the plant prior to moving from California 
to Wyoming.

The flower is quite magnificent...

Here, the stem is quite long...

The leaves got to about 3 feet long and were curling up in the 
corners...I actually had to thin it out on occasion!

I think the Lace plant owned the tank...

Here, my son stands at one end of the tank. Note the flower overhead...

Another view of my tank with the hood on...

The hood is DIY made from chip wood with a wood laminate. There is 
aluminum foil for a reflector. I can lift it off with one hand. The tank 
sits on my hand made stand. There is a layer of felt between the tank 
and the stand.

When I moved, I put all my plants in an ice chest and hoped for the 
best. After setting my tank back up, I was fearful that ground well 
water would kill my Lace plant, but it is doing quite well.

I'll post pictures of my new setup after I get some better pics.
