Mike is updating his indoor growing pictures, so I thought I woudl too. I just moved everyting inside last night. This year I have changed over to some Ebb and Flow tables like Mike. I have moved small plants and seedlings to a separate grow rack where I can micro manage them. Everything looks clean and new. It won't last long. :-)

Looking good Ben, I like the bridge you made with the humidity trays between the ebb and flo reservoirs. Will be fun to see another pic in a few months when there's a showcase of new flowers!

I have stem props in the culture tubes. Nothing really special. When I was learning, I grabbed about any spike I had. Many of them didn't make it. I have several tips cultured in there, but seems all they do is get longer.

The seed pods are also nothing special either. I made them for the sake of having seed pods to learn to sow them in lab conditions. One is (Tsays Evergreen 'Nobby Jade' x bellina 'Chin Yo'). I can't think of the others. I don't even know if I'll take any of them to the point of flowers. I just want to learn the lab stuff.

Ben, I think this needs yet another photo update from you and Mike, and anyone else. I'm putting the final touches on my blatant copy of your grow space setup, so I'd love to see how yours has changed

I haven't seen those pics in forever. I'll have to clean it up before I take a picture.

I can't believe those few little tubes of stem props. Now I have 2 sets of shelves full of flasks.

I figured yours had grown. This topic should basically be a sticky. It's been my bible in building mine downstairs. I haven't really decided how much extra side and front space to build into mine (I'm a bit more limited). I'm also going back and forth with adding an MH light to the grow space. I like the heat that it'll add to the space, especially in winter, but I dont know if it's the best choice.
Anyway, I'd love to see how everyone's space has evolved.

Just found this thread and to cover the last three years "great job guys." Ben I love how clean your setup is, makes me want to put my 300' of plastic to use making my own. I have attached a picture of my indoor setup using a 250 MH with plants more tolerant of low humidity outside the humidified tent. Mine moved downstairs about 45 days ago and despite the cooler temperatures I have seen almost all plants respond well to the environment. Humidity on the unenclosed table is roughly 35-50% depending how near the plant media or water/rock filled table underneath the plants you are. I hold the tent at 50-70% for my Bulbo's and sensitive Phals. I am eagerly awaiting new updates from the rest of the thread!
