Hi all. I've been a lurker here for a while and am taking the plunge and introduce myself.
I have been raising orchids under lights for a number of years. Mostly phals but also phrags, sophronitis and some other species (plus some minicatts). In 2007 I was having problems with fungus gnats and a friend sent me some sundews. Well, that was all it took.
That year I (with the help of my family) put in a whiskey barrel bog which is going strong with sarrc, VFT and bog orchids. I've also expanded to a terriarium for some of the smaller orchids. The terriarium is done with the plants individually potted or mounted with spanish moss drapped around to hide the pots. The floor is covered with eggcrate, then a layer of firbark is over the eggcrate to hide it.
I keep tropical sundews among the orchids on the light stands and in the terrarium. A second terrarium is being planned and I've added two small nepths to the collection.Two weeks ago I bought my first Mexican ping and hope to be adding more along with some pygmy sundews.
When I grow more confident with cps i will be adding a ceph as well.
