Bottom shelf is lit by three 48" Wallyworld LED 5000k shoplights. There's a D. binata, D. tokaisens (I never can spell that one and I ain't lookin' it up! ), and a pot of local D. brevifolia in the white tray on the left. Then a couple of pots of some red flytraps, a pot of miscellaneous traps, a S. Scarlet Belle, and a S. leucophyllia. Sitting in front of the ancient snack-rack are two pans of local sphagnum moss that I've had growing for several months.
The entire rack (and the little blue fan) are hooked to a timer that runs everything for ~16 hours a day...right now roughly from late afternoon till late morning...to benefit from the heat generated by the lights.
Over to the right you can see a large plastic container on a desk. Threre's three pots of sarrs seedlings and a pot of wide-leaf capes in there. There's about an inch of water in the container with a heat mat below governed by an Ink-Bird thermostat.
The nice ice bucket sitting to the right side of the desk works *very* nicely when holding a frozen bottle of water and a few cans of your favorite liquid. My MIL worked for Holiday Inn many, many moons ago. I figure it's souveneir from the past.
Now, getting back to the topic at hand. Dead-Head John came about because the old trailer is one we sat up for my MIL years ago. She went home to the Lord several years ago and the trailer has been mostly unused but still with power going to it. Went I started gardening I set it up to grow my seedlings in the early spring. Now, with the CPs, it's getting just about fulltime use...with added lights, too! As it may be, I've had a couple of people to mention to other people who then mentioned to me (see how this goes, eh? ) that "there's lights on in your MIL's old trailer!". Well, I appreciate the concern they have for the lights being on. The trailer sits a piece off the highway so they kinda had to be rubbernecking a bit...but I appreciate their thoughts. Anyhow, I figured I give them something to think about so I grabbed an old pair of pants and a shirt, cut out some hands and a head...and Dead-Head John came to be. I figured folks needed to see someone waving at them when they do their rubbernecking.<grin> His name is John...John Doe. His friends call him "Dead-Head John"
Yep, state-of-the art operation here with a friendly security guard!!!!!
Now, just how much time out of your life did you waste reading all of this?
