    Yeah Clint the Cynoches hybrid is drooping a little. That new growth is barely hanging on. I got it like that at my OS raffle, but there is a newer growth that is coming in too. If it breaks off do you want it Clint?

    Copcar, Nepenthes AK, ans Xvart. Sure I will get you a close up of Pic #6. Those are all my Utrics. The green stuff in the water is Azolla. Its a water fern that has a bacteria in the leaf tissue. The bacteria fixes Nitrogen, and it does so good of a job that it makes to much for the Azolla to use so it leaches out into the water. The water surrounding the Utrics should be full of nitrogen leached out by the Azolla. Free natural fertilizer for the plants. I have been growing them like that ever since I started groing CPs. So far they are not keeping over dead. I will get those closeup pics for you soon. I am working fri, sat and sunday night. So it may or may not be this weekend, but I should be able to do it Monday.

    Thanks everyone for the comments. I am happy how it is turning out.

    This is a crappy drawing of the floor plan I am thinking of.


    This is what the wife proposed.


    If you guys have any ideas let me know.

    Regardless of floor plan I will have bars hanging from the rafters for the hanging plants since those will not affect how the floor is arranged. I also plan on adding a rack of some sort to the tall back wall to hang mounted plants on, and I will add more wire shelves above the one long one I have on the wall already. Thanks for you folks input too! I think I have done good for only having a couple hundred bucks in it and for my second atempt at building my own GH. I will be honest though. After I recover this GH next year with pollycarbinate, I will not be building another fron scratch. I will be going with a prefab that is MUCH larger than this one. Thanks again everyone.

    Oh boy I was fearing that LOL That way leaves more floor open, but I guess before I start worrying about it I need to do some measuring to see exactly what will fit and where. Since I definately will be using the old benches and building new ones to finish it out.

    Yeah, but it looks nicer.

    Why not just make them touch side to side. Like, take the smaller benches and push them together to make a giant bench.

    Because if I turn them onto theri sides with the short end touching the wall I will not be able to reach the entire bench if I slide them together. I need to be able to access the entire top of the bench. It is already going to be hard enough getting plants to the top of the wall where I plant o hang my mounts whenI do put that rack up.

    I have the hanging rods finished. Now I have room for hanging plant!








    Now for some closeups that were requested. I will give the plant names on requests.
