    How do YOU grow your plants?

    With all that's in the realm of possibility, how do you grow your plants?

    Terrarium, greenhouse, bog garden, windowsill?


    Here's a link showing all my setups:

    My main plant rack with 2 two foot, 2 tube T5 lights.
    The other plants sit outside in my greenhouse, and all the other tropicals/mosses are inside my indoor greenhouse.

    I have a few ways, and it depends on what the plants wants.

    I have an outdoor temperate bog with Sarrs, VFT's, temperate Dews and companion plants. Zone 5.

    I also have a 'reasonably room temp' grow rack with 4 fluorescent tubes, and not much more humidity than ambient. It was mostly built for short CPs such as dews, pings and Cephs, but it also has some byblis seedlings and young orchids in it. I am largely still filling it in.

    I also have 2 'lowland/tropical' terrariums for LL neps, and other tropical plants than enjoy abundant heat and humidity.

    I grow numerous Non-Cps in sunny windowsills.

    I'm not Nemjones but that appears to be a jade plant with a Rhipsalis sp. in front of it. As for me I grow my plants outside when weather allows and bring them in under lights for the winter. I have a 4ft grow rack in front of a window that gets full sun for a few hours a day. I also have 540 watts of T5 HO and 190 watts of compact fluorescents above them. A mixture of 3000k and 6500k bulbs. Using my trusty lux meter I have measured the darkest areas at 18k lux and the brightest at 78k lux when the sun is shining and 35k when it is not. The plants seem to like it and color up well, but my electricity bill more than doubles in the winter.

    Outdoors year round for native CPs, windowsill for some easier Nepenthes, and a purpose built grow chamber for highland Nepenthes. I also use an indoor mini-greenhouse for my Paphiopedilum and Heliamphora.

    I have a greenhouse (just made a new bigger one from the last) 5/4/3M shade cloth with automated misters for Neps, a couple heli, orchids and misc (like hoya), then a sidturned 4.5ft/2.5ft/2.5ft tank for pings and drosera.
    250-300L ponds (x 5) (utrics, random aquatics and aldrovanda)
    2 human bathtubs turned into bog gardens for sarra, drosera (sun lovers like petiolaris complex, indica, spathulata, adelae and a few more all together), cephalotus (only 2), utrics and stylidium
    Then individual pots around the yard and some neps hanging in trees
    That is my parents covered, they let me keep plants there whilst at uni, I check on them once to twice a month.

    The where I rent I have 4 50-200L ponds for aquatics
    several pots with drosera, sarra, utrics, stylidium and pings.
    Then a 3ft tank for seedlings (curently roridula and a few drosera D.ordenensis, special burmanni, spathulata....)
    Then a small polyhouse (about 8/6ft) for a few smaller neps, orchids, drosera and utrics.
    as well as some larger common hybrid neps in hanging pots.

    And a crap load of cacti, pony palms and friut and veggies mixed between both locations.
