    Dew-stravaganza!

    Following my -stravaganza theme of thread titles, I am starting a thread for my sundews. Up next are my pings and heliamphora. I wouldn't say I have a lot of sundews but my collection is steadily growing. I grow all my sundews in my homemade grow rack which I'll show a picture of in this thread. I built it so I could grow mass amounts of petiolaris dews and overwinter sarr seedlings. It is pretty basic with egg crate shelves, pvc frame and two 4 tube, 4 ft High Output T5s hanging down the sides. I get temps up to around 92F during the day and it drops to about 72F at night in winter and around 76F in summer. Humidity is a little lower than I would like but I'm working on fixing that with some disc humidifiers. Without further ado.... the Dews!
    Here is my grow rack

    D. hookeri, it went dormant right after I got it almost a year ago and it decided it wanted to break dormancy despite it being in petiolaris dew conditions

    D. fulva, looking awesome compared to everything else

    And now for my infamous pests, no idea what they are anybody know? My best guess is thrips/aphids, not really sure.

    Aphids. look for the cornicles on the abdomen. dual exhaust pipes.. cast skins making white dandruff easy give away that these guys (er gals as most are female except with the onset of winter) are active and multiplying like mad...

    Yeah aphids for sure. Honeydew and sooty mold are sure to follow if left to their own devices. Good stuff tho and holy crap-photo slam-lol. I am growing mostly in a tent GH also and have found humidity to be really easy if you mount a little 4" fan on the bottom shelf in a corner pointing upwards. The air circulation seems very beneficial to the plants and due to the night and day temp fluctuations in temp the lower portions of the "tent-house" will have a higher humidity. The fan just pushes it to where it's needed-up in the warmer levels. I hope to start my tent-house thread in the next few weeks to express to the beginners how affordable and easy starting up a TH can be.
