Things grow and suddenly there isnt enough room under the small flourescent lamp anymore. We need to expand the operation!

I construct this lampholder to be flexible, adjustable hight, and room for a double 18Watt flourescent lamp.

This should keep my plants happy during the darkness of january.

As you can see, it is still hard to find gardening stuff during the winter. I take some old saft flasks and cut them into 3 pieces.
Every piece of the flask except the cap is used as a planting pot. 
Here we can see the Spanish pepper.

I also experiment with some disposable cups. I used a hot screwdriver to melt holes in the bottom of the cups.
The plants does not seem to mind.
