Howdy all! I just wanted to share a small upgrade to my little indoor grow setup I got up and running a few months ago!

-I added a second yescom 225 light to the bottom rack. My Nepenthes seem to love it, they colored up on their leaves but no sign of burning!

**-My more proud upgrade is adding a cheap shower curtain around the outside perimeter of the rack! This was recommended by quite a few people and it actually turned out pretty decent, not too ugly looking! :D

What do you think of adding the curtain? Thanks!

I am just starting to make an indoor setup, and I very much would like to avoid buying a tent. But, one thing I have seen is that most tent setups have air flow. Am I wrong in stating your setup has no ventilation ?

Can you include a link back to your original post so I can see if you have answered my other questions already ?

Thank you

Buy a USB computer fan with a dimmer/speed control. Plug it into a usb phone charge brick. Run it at med speed, full time, hanging from a mount, or some have legs. that's all I ever need and I use glass tanks/sterilite tubs.
