    Nepenthes Showcase

    So as most of you have read, I was hired to build and supply a nepenthes showcase for Superior Grow Supply in Lansing, MI. I've got the list of plants, and have started working on what I'm going to use to grow them in the store.
    I have my choice of supplies from their website: www.sunlightsupply.com
    Feel free to take a look, put your own dream setup together, and present it here. Any feedback, thoughts, concerns, or better ideas would be greatly appreciated. I figure with all of our minds put together, we can make one hell of a setup for this store. THANKS TF!!

    Hooooooly cow that's a lot of light. Should be able to get some crazy beautiful coloration. I'm so jealous, what an awesome job.

    Oh stop.. You give me way too much credit. I'm sure the real professionals around here would agree.

    Psh, yeah, alright. You'll have to come here and make me stop, then.
    Or just stop being amazing.
    Your choice.

    Looks nice! Are you going with a drip system? Is the room going to be open or are you going to close it off with panda film/mylar? If you do close it what are your plans for venting the room? I notice the light has a air hookup. Are you going to vent the light too? are you going to use light pulleys? So far everything looks good. If your going to go automated You should look into getting your fan (if you use any) on a thermostat so it will turn on and off at specific temps. The store should have all these available.
