    Thank you!!!!

    That L. tigrina is a great clone. I'll have to grab a photo of the whole plant.

    I'm a Nikon-ite. I use a modified R1C1 setup with a 105mm lens; originally acquired for photographing frogs, but it works quite well for this!
    I'll be honest though, the best piece of equipment I have at the moment is a soldering station with flexible arms. I use it to hold the mounts and sometimes to move leaves around when I'm photographing. It is well worth the cost!

    That is so cool!!! Thanks for sharing this information! I'm definitely in need of better lighting, right now I'm using some spare growlights I have. Christmas is coming up so I'll see if I can get friends and family to help me out with some of the equipment I'm missing!

    I still have a lot to learn about photography! Thanks also for sharing the bit about the R1C1 setup before!! I'd never heard of that, but I found a little youtube clip explaining it:
