    The typical grow rack growing conditions.

    My nepenthes rack....not too impressive but it is a work in progress. Most of these plants are recovering from a thrip infestation a couple months back.

    Very impressive. I love your DIY grow rack. I'm a huge fan of grow racks and will be putting together a larger one in the upcoming months. Ideally I'd like to have 1 shelf for Nepenthes, 1 shelf for drosera and pinguicula, another shelf for propagation of seedlings/cuttings, and another shelf for miscellaneous non-CP's and vegetable garden seedlings.

    I love how uniform your pots/trays are. I'm a neat freak and am currently repotting my entire collection into identical pots like yours. What are you using as top dressing- sand?

    Thanks for sharing!

    Radagast- we are very much alike! like you were saying, I like to have each shelf designated for a specific CP. Having uniform pots and trays allows me to organize and fit many plants on each shelf. It looks more "professional." IMO. It also saves the hassle of finding trays for each individual pot.
    I am currently using silica sand as a top dressing, but would like to replace it with a fine decorative gravel. Anybody have any ideas?

    Have you ever considered topping the pots w/ Live Sphagnum Moss? I'm currently doing that on several of my Nepenthes and various Drosera pots. I've seen this done in many photos and when done correctly it really gives your collection an exotic "WOW" factor. I just started a Sphagnum culture but they're all babies and not yet filling out the container.

    I have tried live sphagnum, but my humidity is too low and the lights are too intense for it to thrive. But yes, it does create a "wow" factor.
    If you ever need live sphagnum, I have a bunch growing on my property that I am more than willing to share.

    Very nice! What sort of media do you use for your Cephs? They look great.
