    Hey, if you're going to line the sides with anything, why not use mylar? That way you'll get greatly increased light on your plants AND preserve humidity.

    That made me laugh out loud - literally! Funny stuff [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] It does make sense though. However, I bet even with that motto I'd still manage to screw something up (no pun intended).

    I agree with Capslock regarding using mylar. Mylar reflects about 95-98% of the light. It will greatly increase the efficiency of your lights. I just bought a 50ft roll of it for $25. I line the back and sides, but leave the top and front open. I don't worry about humidity for sundews, pings, and bladderworts.

    Leopard Gecko,

    Anyplace that sells hydroponic supplies has mylar. I noticed you lived in California, so I did a search on google and came up with this:
