    Hello, does anyone have any experience using the castnoo LED 1000w fixture? From the information I have found is good for covering a 2ftx2ft area. Max 4ftx4ft area if less lightning is needed. Plan on using this for Nepenthes. My prior experience with lighting was using T8 and T12 lighting...

    Mini bog.

    Got a few Sarracenia and Venus flytraps over the weekend. One Venus flytrap turned out to be 2 in one pot. Setup a mini bog for them today. Plan to add some sundews later. Have a pot of, what I believe to be, Drosera spatulata I need to split apart. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Misting system

    I have been thinking about a misting system for a 6'L x 4'H x 2'W Nepenthes chamber. I am thinking between a greenhouse type misting system or a ultra sonic mister. The greenhouse like system would not actually include an electric pump or the computer control (a timer and ac adapter would be...
