    This is my propagation chamber. I start seeds, root cuttings and my 'rescues' come here to recover.
    'Tis in the works. Still have to clean up the wiring, add another LED bulb, finish the plant platforms and maybe set up misting system. Has a computer fan on the back, that kicks on for 30 mins midday.
    Heater, filter and feeder guppies in the red bin - to help maintain humidity.

    I showed you mine, now show me yours!

    Definitely gonna make something attractive, like your setup, once they're big enough to transplant from the Dixie cups.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

    This is my setup currently, it's 2 ikea shelves with T8 fluorescent lights. It's worked great for what it is, each shelf fits a 1020 tray. The only issues I'm having are broken ballasts about once a year, I'm hoping to switch to LED next year assuming this most recent faulty ballast doesn't die in the next couple of weeks.. I'm trying to leave some space to grow peppers & tomatoes over the winter too.

    Nice nepenthes ;)
    My t5 ballast is pushing 8 years old, but I certainly agree that LED is the way to go

    I've just had really bad luck it seems, they're cheaply made. Luckily they aren't too expensive to replace but it's gonna add up so I'd rather switch to LED's instead.

    I just bought this for my sarracenia seedlings. They are under T5 and LED 24/7 and the top seedlings receive Maxsea at 1/4 the strenght every week. They are 3 1/2 month old. The bottom seedlings were just started. They will get no dormancy for 2 years. The grow tent is Vivosun 30 x 18 x 36. All the light energy remain inside and around the plants. Very efficient!

    Once I get around to cleaning the mess, I'll post pictures :p

    But I use the 1020 trays + domes with sunblaster LEDs.

    I hear you with the mess, lol.

    I am refinishing 2 dressers, building a paludarium, replacing the driver in my sub and getting seedlings started in the basement!

    The girlfriend won't come halfway down the stairs, cuz she doesn't want ptsd.

    I just won't allow anyone down haha. If I do, they move something and it takes me a week to find it.

    Here's some old pictures since I'm lazy... I've changed things around a bit, but it's similar. Most of it isn't CPs, but oh well. plantshelf2.jpg cvbvcx.jpg
