    Very nice! I like that the bed was placed to the side to make room for plants. That's my kind of priorities!

    Curiously though, why won't a good room humidifier work? I guess to get try lowland conditions in the room would cause all kinds of other problems, but just for growing intermediates at the window?

    Thanks for giving us some ideas!

    On a similar note, is that a cool mist humidifier in the chamber? I was wondering if you've tried a warm mist one in there? It may take care of the temp concerns without the need for a heater.

    Never tired a warm mist. I was thinking about it, but for some reason I think cool mist ultrasonics are preferred in the hobby even w/ lowlanders. I think I saw a thread on why once, but I can't remember. If/when this one craps out, I think I'll try a warm mist.

    I've been running a digital thermometer/hygrometer for about a week now. Here are my conditions for anyone interested:

    Ranges:
    Temp: 74-93
    Humidity: 59-74%

    Day is usually about 82-92, mostly spent around 87, humidity avg about 67%.
    Night is usually 77, but drops to 74 at least fleetingly every night. Humidity avg about 72%


    I have been using a warm mist humidifier as well. The only thing that sucks is my water is horrible (1031ppm), so I have to chisel/CLR the caked on white mineral nonsense every few days. I could use RO water, but since I have to fill the humidifier up 2x per day, I can't afford it ATM (no RO unit, never rains here). It has raised my humidity considerably, and also makes everything much warmer, which I like. The ultrasonic I had just made EVERYTHING wet, but it wasn't very humid for some reason.

    I'll probably do a pic roundup in a couple of weeks. I'm waiting on pitchers from alata giant x spectabilis, bellii, and some other stuff I can't remember.
