Morning All & Happy Spring!
I reside in a small 3rd floor apt in Maine. I help my husband w/ his business but, it leaves me w/ plenty if time to study further & spend time w/ each tree. My limitations are in space.
In my bathroom I mounted two 3ft shelves. Each has 2 Walmart grow lights underneath. I painted the shelves flat white. The walls in the bath are white too & the room also has a west facing skylight. I want to try to optimize my space & of course, my trees. I originally made it for starting cuttings of house plants. The lights are an inch above the tallest. I have a small fan oscillating Suggestions on how I could improve it? It's nice looking too other than all the cords! I want hubby to hide them in the wall somehow. Comments? Another idea? Ideas & criticism welcome!!!
My apt only has 3 windows! (1 being the above mentioned W facing skylight) the next largest is S facing & opens to a flat 5x5 ft area. My landlord is fabulous & as long as I make "it" safe, she's fine w/ me DIYing. I'd like to create a wood perimeter or something so my trees can summer vaca out there. 1 caveat; a very large, very old tree will be filling in soon & I haven't been here long enough to know how much it'll change things.
I'm willing to invest more money to elaborate/create better spaces to grow & display my trees. There's little traction in So.Maine for bonsai culture. I'm very hungry to learn & improve. I enjoy nature & art. I consider myself a decent artist & bonsai is the marriage of nature & art!! Thanks in advance, I look forward to learning things from experienced growers!!!
