    Highlander growrack

    Well, im going to set it up next wednesday or thursday. :3 the grow rack is just one of those mini GHs you buy at lowes for like 40 dollars, i figure id put some use to it....more than just my outdoor neps, as the plants will need to be moved in very soon anyway. Basically. the rack is going to have 3 lights, 2 on the bottom 1 on top, toprack for the lower light loving neps. The container on the top rack, something i thought of, and it will hopefully work well. is a plastic tub or a baking dish of some sorts that contains water, when the light is turned on, it will heat up the water causing it to evaporate, raising the humidity level in the growrack (yes it is covered) the fan in the middle keeps the air circulating in both levels. it blows against the opposite side of the of the rack causing air to move both up and down. While cooling it down and circulating the air. Each light will have a plastic cover over the top of the light itself to keep water from dripping down onto the light and shorting it out. The plants will have a tray of some kind under to catch the water that comes out of the pots after watering, and will also help raise the humidity.
    plants that will be grown on this rack
    2 Rajah
    1 Talangensis
    3 Hamata
    1 Tentaculata
    1 Aristolochioides
    1 Talangensis
    1 Bongso
    1 Lowii
    3 Ventrata
    1 Sanguinea
    1 Spectabilis
    1 Mikei
    1 Densiflora
    and my Splendiana x [(Veitchii x Maxima) x Veitchii] seedlings
    as well as various Drosera and Utricularia

    everything is ready :3 i will set it up today(since its 1:11AM) . the only thing that has not arrived yet is my fan. New plants will arrive soon as well, and hopefully sometime around the plants. until then i will just use my big box fan and blow it onto the growrack to help keep it cool. Hopefully that will work :3 i will post pics as i am setting it up.

    I would have put the mylar, cut to fit, around the rack and then put the plastic on top of the mylar. It would look better.

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?
