    R&D Specialist

    Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

    My name is DrNo7 and I am a Research and Developer (R&D) specialist in the field of Biochemistry. I am currently running experiments to use carnivorous plants to create an artificial environment (AE) to grow other rare, and specialized plants. I am an expert in hydroponics, and aquaponics: ask me any questions! Thank you all!

    Welcome to TF! Your line of research sounds intriguing. Can you elaborate?

    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    I don't want to go to much into depth (mainly because I am trying to patent the idea) but I can give you a general overview:
    Through several experiments, I find that tropical carnivorous plants (tropical sundews and Nepenthes species) regulate humidity in a biological effort to keep their environment at a constant. By regulating the humidity (moisture content), they also regulate temperatures. I am using their natural abilities to grow another plant: Salicornia. Coincidentally, I found that both tropical CP's and Salicornia grow in unique environments, similar to each other. I am creating an apparatus to grow both plants: one helping out the other.

    P.S: I like your quote by Thomas Jefferson

    Welcome! Looking forward to hear more about your propagation technique. I manage a biogeochemistry lab, so I'm sure I'll be interested about hearing about your work in general.

    Welcome!

    It's good to see a hydroponics expert; I have a few questions I need to address before I build my Fall lettuce system.
