    Roots growing in empty space

    Hi FT. Those auto-vent openers are a good buy and reasonably cheap. Came in very useful during hot weather last year. My greenhouse is a few miles from my home and a cannot always get there.
  2. Morning. Won't take long to fill then LOL. Have you thought about water trays? A mate helped me to construct some last year. I fitted the pond liner. Lots more room to get pots in with loads of storage underneath the tray benches.

    Hi Everyone

    Welcome Justin.
  4. Looks like a 12 footer? Loads of room and looking good.

    Rainwater issue

    As RobH says, TDS (and pH) meters are cheap essentials. A lot of my rainwater comes off the roof and has never been a problem. I also have an RO system for when water gets in short supply, a cheap used kit off the Bay.
  6. I know someone who used heavy duty velcro to secure a couple of growbag trays to his window sills.

    Psittacina advice, please

    Thanks for starting this thread Guy. The info from Richard is excellent and just what I needed to improve the lot of my psittacina, although they appear to be happy a la' Sarracenia treatment.

    Solar Fans

    Just a little add to this thread. The small 10w panel was not beefy enough to power the fan and trickle the battery (12v). I invested in a new 100w panel and deep cycle battery for my camper van trips. This is more than enough to keep both fans going and power two bottle top misters 24/7. So I got to thinking what else could run from 12v power? At the moment I am researching better misters and some lighting and maybe a heating pad.

  14. I managed to get a book of his a couple of years ago and this planted a seed. Yes, he will always be truly inspirational, and, like other great people, will never be forgotten. It may be of interest to know that Paul (P&J carnivorous Plants, Hereford.) continues Mr. Slacks work in Hereford, having taken over Marston Exotics several years ago. I met Paul and his wife at his open day a couple of weeks ago, and, within minutes, it was obvious that his depth of knowledge and enthusiasm was vast. He also keeps a national Sarracenia collection, and other carnivorous plants, many of which he inherited from Mr. Slack and which he has subsequently cultivated. Thank you Mr. Slack, and to all others who add to our knowledge on a daily basis.
