So I remodelled my house, and one of the results is a new room in the basement (half underground). It's a small room, about 8 x 12 feet, but big enough for all my three racks. Here's the overall:
Here's the rack on the right, which has a tank on the lower shelf, and a 400 watt MH light up above (sorry, the MH lights always make the photos look like crap). There are heliamphora in the terrarium above:
Here's the center rack, which has all 48inch tube shop lights and cheap bulbs. It grows the best:
Here's the left rack, which has fluorex lights above, and shop lights below. I also like this setup, as long as the fluorex lights keep working. Some of these neps are getting out of control:
There is a small window to the outside from this room, plus a door that leads to the rest of the basement. I should be able to control the climate really easy in here. I'm open to suggestion on improving this room, so if anyone has anything I should add, just say the word. So far, the humidy has been high, and it warms to about 78 during the day, then down to 58 or so overnight. I'm a little worried about heat during the summer, but during our rare heat waves, I think I can open the door to the basement to keep it cool. I'm trying to grow everything from N. ampularia to N. villosa in here, so wish me luck!
