    Default 900mm Tomato Cage Spiral MiniTrees

    Last year I upgraded my 5x Fibre Optic RGB mini Trees to 7x light weight RGB Coro trees.

    This year and adding 8x 900mm 42x Pixel spiral minitrees.
    Here a is a video of one them running a couple of Fades.


    These are pretty easy to build, but if your interested, the build notes will be over on my Blog: http://mynoellights.com/blog/?p=927

    The one he used as pictured on his blog IS $40 for one. Haven't found a cheaper version.

    When I am thinking about getting 10 then even 12 is expensive, but better than 50. Do you have a link to where they are available at that price?

    That would be no good to as it would be an Australian store. As mentioned I bought this lot from the distributor.

    I have considered doing something similar with regular tomato cages but using James' pixel strips and wrap it around. Thanks for sharing.
