    Watering trays from Carter&Holmes Orchids?

    I ordered some C&H Orchids Humidity/watering trays online and ...

    edit: called them back, they just shipped in two different boxes. My bad ... the last one showed up and all my racks have drip trays now .

    ...of course I'm going to need to move them into the tub or something to spray them down with neem because I just found a fuzzy white pest on one of my newer orchids (has been sequestered, but I still don't trust the little devils...won't be trading again this year methinks)...

    Great for watering, don't really do anything for humidity - but my plants are acclimatized to low humidity anyway.

    Seems to me you could buy the egg crate grills for fluorescent lights and cut it to fit into any old tray for a lot cheaper.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Yes, I agree with that in general, but I like having the uniform look that I have and I'm willing to spend the money for a finished product because my plants are on show to the world because I'm a window sill grower. Cutting some myself might make some sharp edges upon which I'm sure I'd slice my hands open too, because I'm definitely a clumsy, hands-on gardener.
