    growspace pictures please

    Hey im starting my collection, and im still tring to deside on growspaces, whether it will be a closet, a window, or a tank. Can i see some pictures of your growspaces so i may better plan mine and deside on which to use. Also can you state the types of plants you grow in your setup.

    many thanks

    I know I have some old school pictures of my "grow closet" that I'll have to dig up tomorrow. It was a shelf above my closet that I put florescent lights in and stood on a chair to water and view my plants. I finally bought a shelf and it makes it much easier, but I certainly have fond memories of that ghetto grow area.

    Closet- good option for less picky plants. people will think you grow weed, though
    Window- for even less picky plants then the closet, yet they will be visible to the world
    Tank- grow anything, but space is an issue. use this if you plan to buy expensive plants.

    my advice is to use both windows and a tank. when you order a plant, put it in the tank for a week or three, and then move it to a window if you so choose. if it declines, move it back to the tank. i do this, and it works rather well. my expensive plants stay in the tank but most of my nepenthenes are either in windows or in my bog garden.

    the best advice i can give for a tank is the dimensions, when picking one out, remember height is least important. the longer and the deeper the better! and trust me, if you get into CPs it WILL fill up fast. spend the money on a big tank now so you dont end up replacing a small one later.
    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.

    Do all three if you can afford it.

    Here's an old, outdated picture of my terrarium. Most of this stuff has been traded away so it looks a little barren right now.

    heres mine. its a bit old. some plants added...in new containers...more lights(6 lights total) and better looking plants! i use:


    1-Shelving By Design- 6x4x18in(?) 5 tiered Storage Shelf
    6- 4ft, 2bulb(40 watt each), T12 Fluorescent fixtures
    12- 40watt T12 daylight fluorescent bulbs
    3- boot trays(water trays )
    pots, plants, lots of water and potting mix
    1-digital termometer/ hydrometer

    as you can see i grow quite a variety of plants it can be a little pricey(~200) but its worth every penny!

    mine
    If you base your grow area around lighting, go for the 4 ft. floro lighting. $8 for a 40 watt x2 fixture @ wallyworld, and 10 cool white bulbs for $10 @ Lowes or Home Depot.
