I have been trying t figure out how I am going t grow my first Darlingtonia when it gets here tomorrow. Here are some pictures of a preliminary setup I just made with stuff I had laying around. It pretty well expains itself, but the pump is an AC fountain pump and the orchid pot is a glazed ceramic. I figure I can add ice packs to the water on hot days.
My concerns are that the hose is automotive hosing. Though never used, I hope it wont exude nasties ovr time in water. Also, the pump is pretty old, so I might replace it with a solar powered one if it craps out.
I combined two ideas for this unit: the orchid pot and the water circulating cooler. Hre are the inks to those.
