Ghetto asl I know. Most of the plants pictured here were recently moved to this setup within the past month, and are rescues from hardware stores, etc.

The small fan up top provides surprisingly good circulation, and I use a humidifier to keep the room at a fairly consistent 80%+ humidity (I have plants other than carnivores in the room that appreciate the humidity)

Every couple of weeks when I feed them I also prune to help prevent fungal growth. The few fungal issues that I’ve had didn’t last long once I introduced some springtails. Plus the sundews love em!

30 watt LED grow bulb w/ aluminum foil to minimize light lost. Plastic bin to the right is sphagnum trimmings on top a layer of peat mix.

16 watt LED grow bulb. I intend on adding aluminum to the peripheries of this corner as well (ignore the gross water in my germination bin it’s well overdue for an exchange)
