    Heyo everyone

    Here are a few pics of my pergola and some of my plants. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I'll be fixing it up a bit when summer starts, like adding a shelf on the back and installing a sprinkler system. I'm also gonna try to make the surroundings more "gardeny."

    enjoy!

    A look at my pergola from the right. You can see that I have a few neps, but hardly any of the pitchers are visible! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] I'll try to fix that later.

    A look at the floor of my pergola from the left. There are more nep pitchers here. You can (almost) clearly see N khasiana, N Ventrata, N rafflesiana, N truncata, and a N eustachya. There are more neps on the floor, but they're too tiny to see. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] There's also a money tree, and the pot inside of the glass bowl is Utric. calycifida plant from Pyro (it's got a flower stalk too yay! )

    Ok, Back to the dinosaur now! :S

    You need more plants! There is way too much empty space and it needs to be filled in [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img] !


    In other words I'm green with envy. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I LOVE coconut pots! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] It's easier to just buy regular pots, but the coconut ones look so much cooler. I have 5 more coconuts ready to turn into pots, and I really think that I can make a funky wind chime with them! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I'd try to sell them, but I don't know how long they last.

    Wow, what can i say... i'm jealous! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    Do you make the coco pots from the whole fruit, or just the shell of the nut? It's not clear from the photo. Nice idea, though, especially if you live where they grow naturally!
    There's no 'a' in perlite.
