    Lol! I guess it's left up to me.

    feedme - For my media I am using aquatic plant soil. I had a lot of problems with the pings crashing using the 50/50 mix of peat/perlite (or sand in the place of perlite). They would seem to be doing fine then just quickly decline. I found out it was due to root rot. The aquatic plant soil has fixed this issue in my particular conditions.

    I use those shoe box containers that you can get at Walmart for under $1.00. I have multiple pots of pings in each one. The shoe boxes act as my 'trays'.

    As far as watering goes, I use the tray method. I don't keep them as wet as my sundews. I put about 1/4" of water in the tray and let it go awhile before watering again. I wait for the water to be totally gone from the tray and wait about 2-4 days before watering again. You can look at the APS and tell if it's wet or dry. I try to wait for it to start turning back to a light brown (wet will be dark brown) before watering again. The way the APS works, I don't think it's really necessary to wait that length of time before watering again, it would probably be fine to do it as soon as the tray dries. I may just be overly paranoid due to losing so many pings in the past.

    My lighting is by two four foot long shop light fixtures. They are T12s. I have a total of four 34-watt bulbs over them. The lights are about 5 1/2" away from the bulbs. This is enough to give them a nice pink coloration. I could drop the lights down some more, but I have a few taller Drosera that need to be moved somewhere else. I should also note that my lights are lined with mylar, and I have mylar on three sides of my grow rack.

    I hope this is helpful to you,
    Crystal

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Crissytal,

    Thanks for the detailed information. I think my main problem is over watering. I was keeping them too wet.
    Feed me Seymour.
