    Question

    My frog friend that comes to visit me on my 3rd story porch:


    My outdoor grow area, mid-summer '05:

    And the inside of my miniature greenhouse around the same time:

    Just to give you an idea of how much space I'm working with:

    What's that metal hoobajoop, you ask? It's my new homemade greenhouse!

    Greenhouse going up: (DIY instructions to follow...)

    Happy plants!

    Have you ever seen the frog climbing up the house? That would be a kinda neat thing to see

    I've seen it bailing off the balcony into a tree, so I assume it knows what it's doing, coming and going. I'm pretty sure it's the same one, 'cuz whenever I catch it and check, it has the same spotting on it's neck and thighs (I did amphibian surveys in my freshman year ecology class.)
    I started this thread because the old one got buried! Let's see pics! My terrarium and indoor racks to come.

    Nice collection of sarrs....they do look happy.

    You know, two of my three CP grow racks are EXACTLY the type in picture #5. Got them for $15 at Lowes and they're worth every penny.

    I like your DIY greenhouse.....looks like you could store all of your water jugs&pots under the greenhouse table, which would free up all the shelves of the growrack for even more CPs!

    You know, there were two reasons to build the new one - one was to keep the birds and squirrels out of stuff, and two was because the little one was about to collapse. They're nice, but don't trust the ones with flimsy plastic joints. They're made to hold flower pots, not trays of water. The big PVC ones by Gro-Pro are pretty good but the parts on mine weren't nearly as sturdy. Some of the parts bent out of shape and I threw them out. I use the remaining parts as risers for my pots. I've saved the greenhouse cover and I'm going make a new frame for it from the same electrical conduit I made the greenhouse out of.
    And yes, I do store a bunch of stuff under that table. The whole thing (table and greenhouse) works as a raincatch which empty into two 20-gallon bins - also the big stacks of pots you can see have been fit (mostly) under the table.

    I guess that means you want us to show you some pics of our stuff? Well, here's a fuzzy, low quality pic of my terrarium!



    Believe me, it is much brighter than how it looks in the pic.

    Here's my setup, to celebrate the end of 2005!

    Here's all three of my grow chambers:







    Here's all three levels of my grow rack:







    Less than a month to go until 2006! Whoo hoo! Bring on the CPs!

    That's a valid point and the drawback to their cost. I have to put my tubs of U.gibba on the bottom rack because of this issue. My third and most recently bought CP growrack is made of metal (cost more) and is sturdier.

    Drosera36 & Mitch: Nice terraria! Drosera36, let me guess....the aquarium bowl is holding aldrovanda and the glass cup is holding genlisea?....I have no way of telling from the pic but I just wanted to guess.

    Mitch, what can I say but that you really have an eye for terrarium setups! Absolutely spectacular.
