    My grow box / setup. Need tips / advice and I have some questions

    So I used to grow other plants, however, I wish not to discuss that. I have hand made a pretty awesome grow box. There are three fans pulling air into the box located at the bottom and three fans located at the top pushing the air out. The inside is coated in mylar. For lighting, I'm...

    Thermo-Electric Cooling - High Altitude

    I have read quite a bit on line about other people's ideas and experiences and have decided to go with a thermo-electric set-up for now on my small five gallon aquarium and later after they are bigger with the refrigeration system out of my old dorm style fridge in a larger set-up. First I am...

    What kind of Humidifier should I get?

    My Sharper Image Humidifier died today. I've had it running nearly 24/7 for the past 2 years... What would you guys suggest I get as a replacement? I would prefer something with a larger reservoir. Also it has to have a round exit for the fog otherwise I have to buy a bunch of other crap to get...

    Heli-stravaganza!

    I don't really have enough Heliamphora yet to really call this a Heli-stravaganza but I'm following suit for all my picture thread names. Without further ado here is my Heliamphora set up and plants! My setup is pretty simple. It consists of a daylight spectrum CFL and a $10 grow light from...

    Cheap Evaporative Cooler

    Hello everyone, My goal in this hobby is to grow plants using cheap materials with minimal electrical power. I'm an eco-nut and just hate spending money on electric bills. So, here is my homemade swamp cooler. I made it for $25-30 and it draws about 50W. Hopefully, this will allow me to grow HL...

    N00b questions! Don't laugh...

    So I am very new to this hobby... I have a few questions... 1) How do I re-pot a Nep? Do I re-pot like a normal plant or do I just fill a pot with some substrate and set it on top? 2) I plan on watering every other day since I live in such a dry climate, but do I leave a saucer underneath the...

    Pics of my not so secret garden...

    Luca wanted to see pics of my overcrowded setup, so I figured I would post them for all to see... Top shelf, has some airplants which are not doing super well... Also some nice big bromeliads in the back... Most of the stuff is in bags, because I don't have a humidifier yet. I should get one...

    Some Grow Rack Advice?

    So in spite of MANY efforts, the neps I am still growing on my grow rack seem to be declining. I have moved most to windowsills where they appear to be doing better, but I want to fix this. Below is what I am currently working with: <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/hugh-jass/6787231467/"...

    A Very Cheap and Effective Highland Terrarium

    My latest cooling design is on the next page. So I recently received a terrarium from a friend. I have become interested in cost-effective setups, and a couple weeks ago I set up a 75 gallon lowland terrarium with only a sunny windowsill to heat/light it (it's exactly the same thing shown here...

    My 44 pentagon thread

    An actual thread of my 44 pentagon, not posting problems in this one. Anyway, I have been interested in CPs for a long time, but I am finally responsible enough to keep them. So I took my failed reef and turned it into a CP terrarium! The way I have planted them is different than other...

    humidification of water soluable fertilizer?

    Would that be something of applicable interest? -Instead of direct foliar feeding; would it not be better absorbed by the plant as a super-fine mist? -One would think the coverage and absorption would be infinitely better. -Downside is i suppose with the fertilizer being misted would...

    Heli dying!

    My heli has been on a slow decline ever since I got it. It is now developing brown spots on the adult pitcher. The smaller ones seem to be doing fine. I think it is because of the heat at night (70*). When I ordered it, the temps were fine, but humidifier failures and other problems caused the...
