I keep plants here all year but in winter the area is full of SA plants that are out for the winter along with others that can't tolerate the cold. A few pics of plants that keep me amused all winter long.
I am not sure why he flowered again but its pretty.
Baby toes (I have 2 only) keep putting out one flower at a time.
A Binata sundew is flowering.
My setup to help keep me sane when I can't go out and work.
They are T5's. I really like them. I got the units at HD and they came with the bulbs. Each unit was $50, but they worked perfectly for my particular area below my laundry room cupboards so I got them.
The bulbs are 21 inches long and 2 bulbs in each fixture. They are on Home Depot's web site if you are interested and called Lithonia Lighting 24 in. White Grow Light. They work great for me and provide nice cool light for my succulents. I don't know how they work for starting veggies, etc.
I looked and they do have a 4 ft/4 bulb fixture for sale so I might order a couple of those. I only want them for my carnivorous plants and for the SA succulants. The ones that come in for the winter can have the T12 lights. Thanks for suggesting I check their website. I do wish they had them at the store, I hate to pay for shipping.
