    SmugMug Acquires Fliickr

    Stuff like this is the reason why I mostly post on Facebook and Instagram now, aside from being far easier to use, I don't have to worry about my photos randomly disappearing. Photo-sharing websites are really trying their best to kill forums, it seems.

    $10 Very pretty and I'm sure my blue tongue skink would 'enjoy' them as well ;)

    Pitcher of the Month January 2018

    Is the POTM Hall of Fame no longer being updated? I always thought it was nice to be able to look back at the past winners (however photobucket did sort of ruin it and a lot of other threads, greedy b*****ds) In any case, great entries this month!

    Mike's Nepenthes Photothread

    ChrisAZ: Here's about the best pic I can get, not great but you get the idea. Dimensions are 8' long, 6' tall and 4' deep. It's lit by a four, 4' two bulb T-5 fixtures on each shelf, the bottom only has two fixtures running at the moment since it not full. The climate control system is all...

    Mike's Nepenthes Photothread

    Thanks guys! ChrisAZ: Its a custom built indoor grow-space Minch108: My temps are intermediate/highland, I used to maintain true HL conditions (75 day, 50-55 at night) but I had some issues with some of the warmer growing species sulking. Since I moved the plants into this setup, temps top out...

    Nepenthes Genetics Question (F2 Hybrids)

    Using your example, if you crossed lowii x truncata back to lowii x truncata, the vast majority of the offspring would resemble the lowii x truncata parents not the grandparents. Yes, there would be genetic outliers that may resemble truncata or lowii more than the average, but traits from both...

    Just a bit of an upgrade ;)

    I ended up using about 1.5 gallons to coat everything. I think you could get away with just a gallon if you're planning to apply reflective material over it, I just added a few extra coats to make sure there was no wood grain visible at all. Since I designed this to truly be a display, I figured...

    Just a bit of an upgrade ;)

    I guess I'll try and keep the bottom as dry as possible, luckily I did install a drain that doesn't allow more than 1/4" of water to collect, so hopefully it'll hold up! I did look at Dryloc as well, but as you mentioned, I was a bit concerned that it didn't list wood as a recommended surface...

    Just a bit of an upgrade ;)

    Thanks guys! The inside is coated in a few layers of Flex Seal, seems like it'll do a good job protecting the wood. I was originally considering roll-on pond sealer, but with shipping it would have cost about twice as much as the flex seal and it seemed to be a very similar product. All the...

    Just a bit of an upgrade ;)

    So after filling the growtent in under a year, here's the new setup... 20180105_163737 by Mike Fallen, on Flickr It's nice to actually be able to see the plants without crawling inside an overgrown tent and having a 14" x 20" place to stand/crouch to work on plants. My goal is to contain my...

    Klossii clones

    The reason it wasn't announced earlier is simple, so the new unconfirmed clones would sell. I, for one, would have never bought my 210 if I had known this was on the horizon and I'm sure many others would have done the same. The new clones would have been tough for them to sell compared to a...

    Klossii clones

    I noticed this as well but haven't seen any explanation as to why the numbers are different. My guess is that these new ones are possibly an assortment of other clones they have in microprop but didn't individually number like the 'selected' clones. Just a guess, but it seems they do this quite...
