    No, me!
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    Oh the macro and villosa were gifts that I've had for years. To me they are priceless. I just hope they survive the moving process.

    I'm just having a little fun with the pics

    Some of the other stuff will find its way to the classifieds and fulfill long overdue promises 😝

    put it off as long as I could David, the villosa was unhappy... along with all the helis.
    No airflow, less light penetration etc etc etc...
    They will look good again in no time now though... doesn't take long :-)

    should had been done a year ago but omg...
    bottom rack will be a pain in the **** but the only rarity on it is the macro and it didn't bury pitchers in all its neighbors.
    Just lays those big thangs on top of everyone LOL

    villosa after the clean up:

    (in middle of watering cycle)

    bottom T8 rack omg

    (top t5 rack was like bottom before the clean up)

    side T8 I use for starting seedlings etc. (supposedly LOL)


    oh and the wasabi!!!!!

    too many for their own good....

    Just about all a heli's surface area is vertical, when they get that thick they lose much of their ability to gather light.
    Airflow also suffers... etc etc etc

    not desirable at all

    helis are weeds if their needs are met,

    ummm only one pitcher atm and its sort of rough, how about some older photos?




    Those bulbs are some cheap 5000k Lowe's LED's I got to babysit some of the divisions from the top rack.
    They are the divisions currently in the classifieds
