    Nice setup. Interesting watering system, reminiscent of the hydroponics ebb and flow (flood and drain) system, with the exception that ebb and flow uses gravity drain rather than syphon.

    Mobile, monkey....thanks for the kind words

    Carl, thanks for the link... I hadnt looked at the various hydroponics techniques. But when similar methodologies arise from 2 different points of view.... well that has to be a good thing

    I've always thought that Heliamphora would be a good candidate for deep water culture (DWC), also known as a bubbler. I've seen pictures of them growing in water in their natural habitat, which would suggest that DWC might be a good option. I've never had an expendable plant to experiment with though.

    Update:

    After a little over two weeks, reservoir TDS had reached 52ppm

    First resevoir water change yesterday.
    After change out and first complete watering cycle, TDS now @ 11ppm

    A lot of the 52ppm was probably a result of the big freakin spiders and beetles that were fermenting in the reservoir LOL

    Unpotted a couple small helis to check substrate condition, no hydrogen sulfide odor.
    Just a nice, fresh smell.
