    need help please keeping water off the floor, putting in new carpeting

    I have not been around for a while but I am redoing the paint and carpeting where I am at and would like to know how people keep water off the floor when they have a large plant rack indoors.
    My large hanging neps drip when watered and I would like the most effective way to keep the floor/carpet dry.
    thanks,

    Peace,

    Get a large Rubbermaid tub or some similar thing and put the whole works in it.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    That always works for me. As long as it's watertight and large enough to house your plants, it'll work.

    I use plastic bins. Ones billed as under the bed sweater storage bins at Target or whatever works well.
    Then I use cultlery organizers found in most super markets and turn them upside down and place the pots on them.
    Then, when the bins eventually fill with water, I use an electric siphon pump from the hardware store to drain out the water into the gallon plastic jugs and dump outside...
    Works quite well! Been doing that for years
