    That D. slackii is a total winner, not to mention your PVC pots. Ingenious.

    Thank you for all the kind responses everyone! I hope to do better photographically in the future.

    As Brokken said they are pvc pipe, cut to length from a 20' piece.

    I've had it about a year and a half but it's always shown a tendency to grow horizontally. This is the only one of this species I've grown so I don't know if this is freakish or not.

    Yes they are. They're now about the size of a US dime.

    The ones in the pictures are around 6" high. I think the maximum height would have to do with how much headroom you have and how much stability you need. The taller the more wobbly. I block the bottom with a square-cut piece of scrap plexiglas, hotglued on, which makes for a base.

    Thanks for the acetone tip, GrowinOld. I'll try that. I mess with drilling holes in them, too. I always put one in the bottom and several around the bottom perimeter but I like to add a few small ones along the sides for air the medium.

    Thanks again, everyone.

    Lightbulb The Tank - a new beginning.

    First photos of the used 55-gal. tank I've just set up for my plants. Everything I grow has pinched toes I'm afraid. The old 10-gal. has been set up as a 'hot' tank for petiolaris 'dews. Now I can try the seeds that I didn't have enough heat for. This is an increase in growing area over four times larger and now there is vertical room for flowering. Crummy pics as follows-


    Special effects view.






    High-tech all the way.




    D. paradoxa - soon to have a warmer home.

    Not even a small step for mankind, but a giant leap for me. Now begins the rather large repotting effort. I think it'll be fun.

    Thanks for looking.

    Brie - Yes, the stacking slackii. There's one clone of it out there that I know of. I wonder if it's done the same. Thanks.

    Mickey - It is certainly a big improvement. 'Glad we made the deal. Thanks.
