    Hiya D muscipula-

    Sorry I didn't reply sooner, got busy with Halloween.

    I think the biggest headach I had with setting up my gh was finding the power to run it.

    If you have enough juice to run two milk heaters, a fan, a fogger, exhaust fan and a cooler (for the summer) then your pretty much set. If not, you will need an electrician to set things right. For the first couple of days, I was tripping our circuit breaker daily, till my wife gave up and said get a professional and things done right.

    As soon as I build up my fundage, I will be looking for a portable heater. Just in case we have a black out. Don't want my many "precious" feeling the cold.

    Good Luck on your future highland greenhouse

    Bo,

    I grow lowland neps and I've found that a large aquarium works the best, even for Bicalcarata. I live in Corvallis Oregon. We should trade sometime. I have some days off next week. I might be able to pass by.
