    Xvart,

    I noticed from you pictures that many of your Neps are not potted in the center of their pots, but actually on the outside, and I just received a Nep that I ordered that was also not centered in its pot. Is there some special significance or special Nep potting knowledge that I am missing out on, or did they just happen to turn out that way? Thanks for a reply!

    Zach

    Hi Zach,

    Nope. No special significance. I'm just not very good and centering plants. Or the root ball tilts one direction or another while filling in the gaps.

    I just repotted a nep that has been sitting in the same stuff, probably since it came from the wholesaler however long that was. I hope I didn't stress it too much when removing the LFS but I must confess that I did pot it in more LFS, but there was bark, some peat and perlite. It was a mess indeed.

    And what is it withall of these pics that I see of grow racks over bare carpet?? I'm just as guilty but I just assumed that it was me being lazy. Glad to see that I'm not the only one. Hey, we spend potential plant money on vacuum cleaners so we'd better get some good use out of them, right?

    I always throw down some 6mil plastic sheeting to prevent tannin-laced water and dirt from getting all over the place.

    I've got plastic below mine also. I'm in an apt, and I'm sure they'd love to nail me for damage costs.

    On topic: Yeah, I hate LFS. Never actually potted with the stuff, but I have started to use it as a top dressing as my media was drying out since I'm outta town 4 days a week. My wife can't be bothered to water for me - she wants nothing to do with my hobby, lol.

    Yeah, my wife and I bought a Dyson with last year's tax return... As for the carpet, I have a large "rubbermade-like" thing below where I actually water so little water gets on the carpet. It's a little more time consuming cycling plants from one spot to another, but no biggie. I've only got so much time and energy to upgrade the physical parts of my growing area... lol.
