    Ping/Dew tank

    Finally got feeling good enough to do some chores around the house. Redo the shower walls, fix the broken drawer in the kitchen, and set up my Ping/Dew tank in the livingroom. Nothing fancy.. more of a test run really. A bottom layer of the Canadian LFS I've been wanting to get rid of, a glass/plastic lid, and 2 48" T12's. Like a moron I forgot to check to see if the lights were even going to make a difference, but they will have to do until next weekend.

    Not much in there now..
    2 D.natalensis ~ 1 is Dashman's
    D.spatulata
    D.spatulata x capensis
    D.capensis sown seeds
    P.moranensis
    P.'tina'
    Michigan LFS culture ~ showing some green!

    At first glance the lettering appeared to me to read "PANTERA"
    o.O
    How tall is the tank? You might want to bring the level of the plants up to get more out of your lights.

    plus you can fill the bottom of the tank with water to help increase humidity.

    But then I won't have a way to put that crappy Canadian LFS to use. It's just sitting around and I want to get rid of it or get it growing.

    Gave them a shelf today. But I really screwed up.. I added another light, but didn't keep an eye on the temp. Within an hour I lost 2 flowers on my P.moranensis, and all the dew on my Droseras. Everybody is fine, just got a little warm. The temp is back down and I gave everyone a quick mist. Once again, it's all good. And yes, I turned off the 2nd light.

    Nice setup. I have that same temperature / humidity gauge.
