    They fit, that is, until they start to bloom!

    Hi Pinguiculaman,

    Are you also using a humidifier for these plants? I imagine that the carpet would make the humidity quite low. The plants,however, are looking good!

    This setup is on the floor in the bedroom adjacent to the plant room. The only thing I've done to accomodate the plants in this room is to set the lights on the top edges of their plastic trays. I keep about 2cm of water in the trays most of the time.

    What do you do with all those plants?

    Sell or trade them?

    My wife has sold some on eBay and I trade them, and yes, I did give away several dozen a while back.

    This batch is planted in 1/3 pumice, 1/3 coarse silica sand, and 1/3 granulated peat moss. I find this cultivar is not very particular about growing media. I've grown it in many combinations, even without media sitting in shallow water in a plastic saucer.

    The lights are within 2 inches of the plants. The dark upper portion of the photo, where the caption is, is the shop light fixture.
