    The new growspace is done, and in the very nick of time. I have replaced the 30 worn out tubes with fresh tubes mounted above twin 4 foot five shelf units. Each shelf will hold 6 plastic bins, each with 10-16 pots. This will accomodate most of my collection with room to spare for propagation.

    Once the HID ballast is returned (hopefully repaired this time) I will have a good strong light source that will allow me to expand in ways I have never been able to.

    This is a trade off on a GH, which I just can't afford to maintain over the winter months here.

    The only problems at present are arranging 2 new circuts in the room, and I am now seeking a good electrician for this.

    NExt season I will begin construction of an outdoor growing area to keep out squirrels and birds and reduce amount of prey the Sarracenia consume. Ideally, I will only have to move the plants once per season, and they will be attractively arranged in one space.

    I am also looking for a good brand of humidifier to run over the winter months. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    My thanks to all my friends who helped me through the dark times. I hope you will come and visit me sometime, now that my collection is finally visable. The door is always open!

    Sounds as if a lot of hard work on your part is going to start paying off. Nice job!

    That's great! I love my 4' long wire shelving unit, too. I just wish it was a bit longer so the shoplights fit better. I just covered the back and sides of the grow shelf with mylar film, and it's amazing how much brighter it is now. I highly recommend doing that. I bought my mylar very cheaply on Ebay a while back- it will pay for itself soon in growth, i think.

    Well, now that the crisis is over, back to CPs!!!

    Glad to have you back on top, Tamlin.

    Good growing
