Thanks. I use planted aquarium tank fixtures from current usa. Very expensive though..but seems to be working. Thinking about trying out rapidled.com to make my own LED fixture or stick with a standard T5HO fixture for this new tank. For now I have an old T8 fixture that I will start with.
Kessil h350'S man, Get er doneeeee. If you are going to spend all that money on lighting go for the best
Can't wait to see the setup. As always thanks for sharin Vr
yeah man... Kessil's are amazing. There is actually one fixture I would LOVE to have:
Those are just freaking insane. I know one of our members Lenynero has it. He showed me its features when I visited him at his house. It was like the FERRARI of light fixtures. Freaking amazing. Everything else is measly in comparison. But you do spend almost a solid GRAND on it.
Yea that fixture is sweet. The kessils put out a special PUR their diodes are crazy good. Not quite the same footprint but crazy healthy growth. Ive only grown with the kessils though the two lamps were 800 $
The a series is nice because you can control the blue white.... look up the 'bluefin' controlling. It links photoperiods via wifi and mimics the environment that you set. The downside to the a series vs. The h series is the lack of red spectrum radiation, the 'a' series is my next upgrade with bluefin environmental control as a blanket radiation for my whole tent.
So here is the new tank with its inhabitants. Brings back memories of my original start with CPs in 2006. Ha! I still remember saying "I don't care about other CPs, I just want to grow venus fly traps. "
Planning pots to be used
Now opening the plants from Urban Bog. Bought 2 of each varieties. Fantastic packing. These Dionaea muscipula look awesome.
Always loved "in action" pics of potting up plants etc. so here is my shot at it
My third Cephalotus clone (although, If I recall correctly, one of our ol' time members might have been the source of the Cephalotus follicularis culture material for Rick at Keehns Carnivores...so in that case, this would be a duplicate of my original Cephalotus plant). He knows who he is.
I had the peat and sand mix soaking for a couple of days, but when I opened the tupperware, there was a rank smell which I never faced with my old brand of peat. I think it might be bacteria. Either way, I wanted a backup of my plants, so I potted the extra of each variety in a pure Sphagnum rubellium.
My personal favourite.. A blood red rosette of Dionaea muscipula. Although, the ol' timers here know how much I love "Dente" varieties. ... Perhaps in the future, I can get a "long teeth" variant of this nice rosette.
Full tank shot. Also put my display cube and potted up another spare root division of my original Cephalotus follicularis to compare growth among my two tanks.
