    Default Show us your growing area!

    I thought it'd be cool to see some recent photos of everyone's grow spaces, and general culture seems the right spot. I've posted a pic of mine from about a week ago. Just after a quick splash of water. It's outside, on the back deck of my condo.



    I should note that the dead looking Dend. is a plant I'm reviving for the mother unit. It's actually got a goot new growth coming in, now that it's been moved out of the coco-husk it was grown in and repotted. The tall thing in the cage is acidanthera. The cage keeps the cats from using the planter as a toilet.

    Orchid-man,
    I like your jungle (hihihi, green house). It's beautiful. How can you keep your plants alive under 0 C? You use heat pump/heater?

    No heating here.The secret is to grow what will take the cooler winter temps
    and keep them on the dry side.(very dry).Also you have be prepared to have a few loses,even if they are plants that you really really wanted

    Qing,
    Very nice grow area! It is so neat and orderly!

    Murray, you have some huge plants!

    Jrod, nice thread idea! It looks like you have room for more plants on the bottom bench of your grow shelf!

    Cheers!
