    Yeah, just being around all those plants would be worth working for.

    Question

    I see that Andrew's flytraps are in trays under other trays, how are they getting enough sun?, and I know they must be cause the typicals I got from him had very nice red coloration, the Arizona sun must be intense!, but those trays look like are in the shade,.., are they moved?

    Very nice indeed, Andrew.

    Are you using a "swamp cooler" to keep the temperatures down? How big is your greenhouse and what size pads (if any) do you have and what is the approximate airflow do you use?

    I noticed that too. How are they getting enough light under those other plants to be all red like that?
    The following statement is true.

    Hello!! I'm not sure "how" it works.. but it does! My guess is it's in the twin wall polycarbonate panels. the light coming through is disperced out in all angles, so even under other stuff... the plants get light. See this image, A is glass, or other material... B is twinwall polycarbonate.. http://www.littlegreenhouse.com/poly-diagram.gif Or maybe my sun is just so dang bright, shade is enough! lol I'm actually about to add more shade cloth (the south side was already shaded, but now that the sun has moved north, it's coming in the north side and just heating the heck out of the g/h!)

    I do use a swamp cooler. Although we are currently in the monsoon season (we basically have 5 seasons when you add in monsoon which really is completely different than the other 4) so the swamp cooler doesn't work too well. It is a Master Cool brand so instead of just the normal aspin pads, it has thick cardboard-ish pads... which really is the best! It gives air more contact with wet material so it cools much better. The cooler is rated for 1000 sq ft.

    PS- I'm uploading more pics right now

    Diffused lighting seems to make a difference. One of the workers at Peter D'Amato's nursery made a comment that as soon as they move plants into the greenhouse area everything starts to color up wonderfully and credited it to the diffuse lighting. I didn't examine the panels but may be the same stuff.
