    Cupcake Carrier

    Last year I stumbled across these cupcake carriers at the $ store. I said to myself HMM!! those look like they would hold 9-3" round pots, so I bought 1 for a buck (big spender). Took it home, dug out my 3" pots and lo and behold the pots fit when I put the top on. Since I make my own labels...

    A Garden on top of 10 Gallon Fish Tank

    Hello all, I have built my first terrarium and decided to put it on top of my 10 gallon fish tank. All the moss and plants are real except the lotus flowers which I made out of clay. The bridge was made out of popsicle sticks which I had to eat a lot of ice cream :0o:. I'm a beginner so feel...

    Matt V's photo thread!

    Just wanted to share some photos of my neps and their progression. I grow my plants under LEDs. The problem I struggle most with is low humidity but it seems like really bright light helps harden my plants and sphagnum (resist drought). Ive built a second grow box to house larger plants though...
