    Nepenthes Showcase

    Phase 1 is complete.. Please keep in mind that this was just day 1 and it is not yet finished. Tomorrow I'll be going back to fill in the tray with media and will be planting the Sarracenia then. I'll update this thread with pics as the showcase comes along.
    Thanks again Tony for supplying the plants and helping to make this possible!


    I used a mix of 2 orchid bark, 2 LFS, and 1 perlite..



    Got the plants all potted up after mixing 10 gallons of media..



    The grow space..



    Using 2 of these liquid cooled 400w Hortilux halides..



    And some plants..

























    Still a lot of work to do yet to make it a more natural looking grow area.. but I had to start somewhere. And after 5 hours of work, I don't think I did too bad.

    Wow...I like....to make it more natural, you could fill the tray with Live LFS...maybe with driftwood poking out here and there......assuming you could find enough live moss.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    no live moss avail. for free this time of year.. and by the time I can get it, the mixed media I put down will be growing just fine. I've got a bunch of Thuidium (fern moss) I'm going to put down, and the Sarracenia will be growing up in between the neps out of the mix. I think it will look quite nice in due time.

    If you're searching for ideas, you could always go look at BE displays...like the big chelsea flower shows:
