    Grow Rack is up and running...mostly

    Hi all,

    I finally got around to setting up the new grow rack I've been planning for months. Thank you again to everyone who gave me their input.

    Once the semester starts and I settle back into the teaching groove, I'll post a more detailed build journal. For now, I'll just leave you with a quick description:

    6' T x 3' L x 1.5' D Steel Shelving from Target
    Sides and back covered in a cover my fiance sewed for me (emergency blanket sandwiched between two clear shower curtains)
    t5 x 4 on the top shelf, t5 x 4 on the lower two
    1 gallon humidifier
    So far, daytime High of 78, low of 60.



    The top shelf will hold my smaller highland Nepenthes, my Heliamphora, a couple orchids, and my airplants.



    The middle shelf is for my Pings, Sundews, and Utrics


    And the bottom shelf is for germinating seeds and growing plugs, leaf pullings, cuttings, etc.


    Now I just need to order more plants. It's far too empty Thanks again to everyone who offered advice.

    Thanks all!

    @waterkirby: I plumbed one of the large model Walgreen's ultrasonic humidifiers to dump fog over the humidity trays on the top shelf. I really dig the look.

    @av8tor1: I forget the exact brand, Sylvania I think. I found them in Home Depot marketed as "grow lights". They come with these diffusers, but the sides are opaque, causing a big loss of spread. I've ordered some reflectors for each bulb that should come in later this week.
