its quite funny to think i tried growing my plants like this, though it was only for a short time and it did not work by any means at all LOL, so this is going to be quite interesting to see peoples reactions to this xD
so this is how it started
Back in December of 07 i believe..
the lighting had changed at this point, but i still wanted to grow VFTs indoors...what a stubborn noob i was (note the ghetto light reflecting hood made from a cardboard box and mylar!) LOL
this was only a month atleast after the first photo...
STILL trying to grow VFTs and a sarra indoors, this was only a week or so later, with another lighting change and removal of the ghettohood LOL
finally got the clue then moved the temperates outside and got a few more neps...yeah this is when the nep obsession started, this was probably around May of 08
not much changed here other than moving the tank next to a window to allow it to get some evening sun in addition to the lighting, this was probably in june of 08
and then a sudden change!
the first attempt at a growrack! this was in September of 08
the rack had really started to fill up, and organization to get as much room as possible, quickly became to no avail, it was just to crammed shortly after this, and for a short while, i had actually had to start up my terrarium again...but we know what that looked like
not much really happened with this until early of 09, and thats when things really started to blow up...this was the beginning of that crazy expansion, ok so not CRAZY but is definitely up there...
adventually it was warm enough outside for the transition, June 2009
August of 09
another increase in the nep population
shortly after the last photo, around October, it began to be too cold at night for my neps...and i had to come up with a quick idea on how to accommodate my larger amount of neps, my room just wouldnt do anymore, the winter home was clear
Finally, in early May of this year, i was able to get things back into the greenhouse...so lets fastforward to present day
i know this didnt even touch my temperate area, but this really wasnt about those...their space, has never changed...they stay put. lol
Hope you enjoyed, i think ive come a long way since the beginning...and man, it was a crappy beginning! LOL
