    as hcarlton said, easier to buy through US retailers. these are all coming via redleaf exotics. he is importing a massive number of plants and did a presale. easy to overspend

    Yeah, saw that! I purchase/import settings for my jewelry designs from Europe and sell my completed jewelry throughout US and Canada, EU, GB, NZ, AU, SE Asia, Japan.

    Rules definately not the same when it comes to live plants. I was thinking that would be the case.

    new growroom is complete! plants were moved in this morning and all im waiting for is a second humidifier and another single tube t5 fixture. wish i had taken a couple photos before starting but it was just a carpeted basement with a drop ceiling and paneling on walls.

    UV resistant heavy duty tarp. big diaper to keep all water in haha

    poles to hang the vining larger plants. can hang plants in horseshoe all around perimeter. should give a magical affect once filled!

    these tables are made from the synthetic wood at home depot. expensive but never rots and holds water like a boat with some silicone in the seams.

    joined the tables and provided nice extra platform for more plants

    eggcrate to keep plants above the runoff water. tables are on subtle incline so water will drain to front and can be siphoned out easily.

    had old 4 x 8 growtent that wouldnt fit down here so i cut off the front and attached to plywood wall frame. sealed with gorilla tape and a ton of staples. should work very well and way better than my old "entrance"

    while transferring plants i came across this weirdo. seems to have split into growthpoints at the tip rather than basaling

    seedlings. think they need some food, can i maxsea them at 1/4 teaspoon per gallon?

    That is some set up! Looking forward to pictures and witnessing your journey and their growth. I'm going to hit you up for advice when I set up my tiny greenhouse one day. Looks like you've put so much thought into your current indoor greenhouse. By the time I set up my outdoor greenhouse you'll be a pro! Lol.

    Looks great! You have put in an impressive amount of work and I am now rethinking some of the decisions I made for my setup to help with any safety or potential water damage.

    Do you have any humidistat/humidifier?
    Also, how do you reach the plants in the back without having to move the others around first?
    Have a wonderful day!

    i find water always gets where you dont want it, the more layers of protection you can have the better. i am trying not to have water land on floor but if it does the tarp will be there.

    if i reach out while bending forward i can reach them hah but not as easily as i would like. luckily im tall with long arms! its either hard to reach or make smaller and hold less plants. ill always choose the harder reach and more space XD

    this setup came from many learning experiences and i had everything planned in my head before starting. if people can learn from my many builds then that is a gift in itself.

    i do have a humidifier hooked up to humidistat and have a second humidifier on the way so I won't be filling it every couple days.

    Oh nice! I have a 5-gallon tank for humidifier and I would say it needs to be refilled every 5 days or so. In reality I usually fill it up about 1/3 and then refill every 2 days.

    Currently I am looking for a solution to cooling my nights enough. The averages are just above 65 at the moment.
    Have a wonderful day!

    when you have a minute, could you take some photos of your humidifier setup? sounds like a homemade rig or am i wrong? using a gallon per day is substantial! must be condensing on surfaces or escaping readily through the airflow huh

    as for night humidity, i know temp drops cause the moisture to condense and form dew. i will make effort to check the reading 30, 60 and 90 minutes after lights out and see exactly how my levels fluctuate. always more to learn!
