    Berry Container

    I know this isn't a unique concept, but it case there isn't a picture of it:



    I've had leftover roots of D. adelae in there, in the fishtank and they are absolutely thriving, sending up numerous plantlets from the roots. I just nestled two pots of D. kenealleyi in there in the hopes that the extra humidity will perk them up.



    It has holes in the top and bottom for ventilation, water passage, and some direct lighting, and yet adds some humidity.

    It's a conceptual adaptation of what was suggested to me by the hobbyist called Barracuda.

    Thanks for the idea Barracuda and jimscott!
    I may have to try using these for seedlings. Could give some pretty nice results I can imagine if fungi are kept in check.

    I've used those before and they are great. I've used many food containers. I used a large, domed pudding container for a ceph leaf pull and now I have a nice plant growing in there.
