    Xvart that was a thrift store thermometer and hydrometer handing off the wire rack. It does ok.

    The stacked pots are just that 4 clay pots of the same sude siliconed together. Then a smaller pot siliconed to the topto ack like a funnel. Orchid roots will attach themselves to the caly pot when potted normaly. So What I did was silicone the pots together and seal the bottom with silicone when I siliconed it to the plastic tray. Then I filled it with water. The water slowly wicks out the terracotta and the plants that are growing on it get the moisture. It also collects alot of dew in the AM when it iw cold and the water inside gets cold and then it warms up. Dew condensates on the terracoatta keeping it damp all the time.

    Outside that pink plant is accualy purple, green and it actual shimmers like it has glitter on it. It is a purple wandering jew. I have about 3 pots of it now all started from a couple 1 dollar plants about 6 inches long I got at the fleamarket here. WOuld you like some clippings? They are easy to root. I could send you some for shipping.

    Neat! Quite a creative contraption with the pots. Thanks for explaining that. Is the purple wandering jew easy to grow?
