He was all alone in the gardening section of Walmart, being the only plant in such a tiny pot. So I brought him home for $2.00.
He will be like a big brother to the seeds I am eagerly waiting for, watching over the seedlings while I sleep or are otherwise engaged. Speaking of seeds, I am beginning this journey with d. capensis, d. intermedia, and mixed drosera.
So far, I have 30 pots, minus the one Chance is living in and enough trays to hold them all. I have 8 quarts of soil which I am given to understand should fill 8 pots. I will be getting more soil as my budget allows. I also have two gallons of distilled water since the ZeroWater pitcher wasn't in the budget this week. The pots and soil were paid for with an Amazon gift card I got for playing games on my smart phone.
The soil came with some bloodworms which I thought was nice.
My setup is behind a bookshelf. The largest space we have available is in the living room, so we pulled the bookshelf out and setup back there because I didn't want to blind everyone while we're watching TV or whatever. Speaking of which, we are visiting the in-laws tomorrow to get my LED back.
The bottoms of these pots are fantastic. It's almost like a net pot. That will come in handy if I ever decide to convert over to hydro.
So the only thing left on my shopping list is the ZeroWater pitcher which comes with a TDS meter and some more soil. Anything else you can think of I might find handy?
