    Default My Growing Area




    Here is a pictures of my indoor growing area. The large white trays are the ones that are for washing machines (really not needed) and of course the smaller ones are from 'Coke' (these are really handy).

    I also have a humidifer that is in the room to help boost humidity, I also have a fan for air movement, and i keep a couple of windows cracked open for fresh air, except when it gets really cold.

    Happy Growing

    Nice pics. Those fluorescents don't give you enough room. If you have the large high light warm loving multiflorals and no natural light, then those fluorescents are useless.

    Thanks for posting!

    Well, the fuorescents may not be the perfect wavelength, but you're definitely doing something right; judging from those pics, your plants look like they're in great shape to me.

    Default Growing Area

    My Iantha Stage is in spike now, came in spike under the lights but I have moved it to another room in the house that gets alot of east and south sun. I have my phrags all in a south window. Don Wimber in spike, Schroderae 'Freel' in bloom, schlimii x besseae in bloom and Jason Fisher 'Killer' x richteri 'Green Giant' in bloom.

    But I am really a smaller brachy nut, and I also like the small phal multi's.

    Happy Growing
