It's been a very long time since I posted, or even viewed, anything on this forum. Truth be told, I put this hobby of mine on the back burner as I made the push to finish my undergrad degree, and apply for graduate school. Then I got lazy, figuring I shouldn't upgrade, or get new plants, until I moved. Well! I have moved, I'm starting graduate classes at the beginning of next month, and I am hoping that building this shelf will be the impetus needed to kick-start my obsession again.
So, below are pictures of my growshelf, any politely-worded suggestions are of course welcome. My collection of carnivorous plants has dwindled down to the barest of bones. I need to get a sense of what my conditions are before I start looking into getting more. But I'm thinking mexican pings, since I have only the one left.
As it looks from the outside, with the curtain drawn.
The top shelf is orchids. Epiphytes for the most part. I started working on an automated watering system on this today, but it didn't work the way I expected (it never does!! ) But I'll tweek it and make it work somehow.
A nobel dendrobiuum and tillandsia mounted on cork bark.
The last survivors of my carnivorous plant collection. Sad, I know. I have a couple larger Nepenthes not pictured, but this is pretty much it. I had the most difficult time trying to find a proper tray to fit my shelf, any suggestions? I feel like with a nice fitting tray, I can repot everything into nice fitting square pots, and maximize space!!
The bottom shelf, for now, has my odd-ball plants on it. A few Agave, some citrus seedlings, and then the current prize of my plant collection- my Welwitschia!!
(I put up a thread about this plant herehttp://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...Picture-heavy)
Thanks for looking! I'm really hoping to get back into this hobby with the same passion I had before, wish me luck!
