I'm so excited! After many long hours of researching and debating, I've finally taken the plunge and ordered my first ceph online. It should get here tomorrow or the next day
Anyway, I thought I'd share my setup so far to see what you guys think. I welcome any advice seems how it will be easier to fix now before it gets here rather than after it's been potted....
Here's the pot, size is about 6"x6"x6". Its a ceramic pot that came with no holes, so I had to drill a bunch for good drainage (holes not shown in pic).
Here the pot filled with media. The media I'm using is mostly sand and perlite with some peat. Its nice and fluffy, not likely to get water logged. Once the plant comes it'll have more of a mound of soil on top.
I'm using the wick method for watering. In two of the holes I have a nylon cord that wicks the water up. I've been testing it over the past day or so and seems to be watering how I would like.
And finally, heres what the full set up looks like. Its in one of those big cement mixing trays raised out of the water by bricks. I figure the bigger the tray the less likely I would find myself accidently running out of water and the soil drying up.
I'll update again once it gets here
