cacti box...any suggestions?
    #2800867 - 06/17/04 12:20 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

alright so now have an empty retired lizard cage. It is very simple. 4'Lx2'wx2'H. the lid is just a frame with 1/4" mesh on it (able to support lights). it is water proof.

So what im planning is to fill it with about 12" (half full) with cacti mix. so far i have 2 36" flouro's and 2 incandecent bulbs in it. I can add so many flouro's to this thing its not even funny, so how many shoul i use? MH and HPS are definalty an impossibility for me. so it has to be flouro's and/or incandesent.

it is for all my non-ethno cacti (which are tiny), smaller trich's, and mainly peyote. So what would you guys recomend for me to make this better? also keeping outside is only possible for part of the year here, so i would like to set this thing up for veg if possible.

thanks,
kada

I wouldn't put all the cacti into one mix. Just put the pots in there under the lights. Put the light on a timer for 12-14 hours a day. You also need some ventilation so the cacti have a chance to dry out between waterings. With flouro's.... you need as many as you can get, and try to get them with at least 6000K lights for growth.

Hope this helps.

excellent thank you. i will do it with pots, saves a lot of work fillin gthat with dirt. currently i hav e2 compacts in the inc. fictures.

so far the only bulbs i have are datlight (atound teh 6000k i do believe), except for the compacts which i beleive are more towards 3000-4000k?

thanks for your input.
