Many people grow their plants inside year round. Others, have some inside and some outside. Then there is me that goes, "Oh crud, winter is coming. Where am I going to find space for all of these tropicals?" This photo contest is dedicated to all of you inside growers. This month we want to see your plants growing in your indoor setup. Grow tents, terrariums, sunny windowsill; it doesn't matter, we want to see them all. I am modifying the rules for this contest. Instead of only 1 photo, you can enter multiple photos in 1 entry. That way it will be easier to show of the plants and the setup. So the rules:
1. It must be your own picture
2. You can only submit one entry for this contest
3. Pictures shared in previous contests are not eligible
4. The winner will be the entry with the highest number of thumbs up votes
5. This contest is open internationally, although there will be an alternate prize for international winners

This month's prize is the bomb. @Matt and Leah from The Flytrap Store are giving a B52 flytrap (see what I did there?) for our first place winner. As usual, the winner would be responsible for shipping.

From the Flytrap Store website:
B52 is known as the famous "World's Largest Traps" Venus Flytrap. Though it may be dethroned from this title by the newly released DC XL Venus Flytrap, it is nonetheless without question one of the most impressive Venus Flytraps that exist, developing huge wide traps, and often exhibiting striking bright red color on its trap interiors. It is truly a superior Venus Flytrap, in a class of its own.
The B52 is one of the crowning achievements of the Venus Flytrap breeding program of Henning von Schmeling. Micropropagated ("tissue cultured") by David Conner for sale and more widespread distribution, it continues to generate a very strong demand, primarily due its impressive trap size. 'B52' is an officially registered Venus Flytrap cultivar.
So, let's set those awesome indoor set ups. 'Cause

And I need some help.

Wow... your guys' grow setups are already lookin' impressive(at least compared to my crappy little setup🤣).
I don't have much TBH. Just a DIY closet setup, complete with aluminum foil thumbtack-ed onto the wall, and a grow bulb in a chicken light reflector.
Here's my setup:(pics are backward for some reason so read from the bottom up)

This is my indoor setup. My brother-in-law works for NASA, and designed these stackable, foldable boxes. They are lined with reflective insulation and are both powered by Marshydro 300W. The coolest part is that it is run by a RasberryPi computer that is linked to a weather satellite. It can have the lights mimic the weather pattern (only used in the winter). I can also control humidity and should I ever want to, have it "spritz" my plants with water (I haven't gone that far). Super cool setup.

Since I am getting to work from home these days, I have these set up on my desk so I can obsess over my cephalotus, a Mexican ping that a slug had for dinner and my baby cobras.

This is my basement setup that is currently in storage that I will be getting in shape for this winter. I'll also get the third and bottom shelf running.

Yeah its a little green trying to force a balance with a nicrew-skyled+ on for 12h it taking some time even with CO2 injection. At some point it will happen.
