I just made this whole set up without buying anything!
Moral of the story: always look around your house
So I've got this plastic tub, water, some potting soil from my shed, one CFL 14watt 5000K and my "pots" are all bottoms of various plastic bottles
all that is in there right now is a small crypt
my java fern is growing plantlets so I will probably put one in there too!
advice, questions, comments?
