    I cool them by the lights turning off and during the summer I use cold water in the trays. Plus I live in Oregon and most nights are below 60 so its usually not bad. It is only 90 plus around here maybe 3 weeks out of the year so that is not a problem either. But i keep the plants at around 80 degrees with 70 percent humidity during the day to 60 degrees in the night with 90 percent humidity. If you need to cool your plants I would suggest a fogger or an a/c unit that does not kill humidity.

    Is that one of those 4 tier thingys with the zip up plastic cover?

    What sort of lights are in there? I've been too chicken to put lights inside of my enclosures not knowing if extreme humidity would jack them up.

    Looking good!

    I keep my growrack nearly entirely enclosed (it gets plenty of fresh air) and my humidity is about 70% in the day and about 90 - 95% at night. Other than a few minor rust spots on the outside of one fixtures that is near the humidifier outlet, I haven't had any issues with them. However, my metal rack itself is showing a lot of rust!

    the rack I have is covered in a thick green paint that is very rubbery so it doesnt rust either. My N. rajah looked super bad here because I just got more lights so I could have 2 grow areas. My lowii trusmadi did fine in lowland conditions and even pitchered and put up leaves in my lowland tank. I now have a whole new leaf. My N jamban is doing very well that I recieved this week as is my villosa.
