    These are some Neps wintering indoors
    Many of my LLs are ontop of the shelve currently under the CFL light.

    If i can find a way to get an overhead light inside their that will stay while running a fogger/mister do y'all think this would work to house them in?

    that looks like it may work sort term, if you get some way of lighting maybe some LED lighting strips to at least supplement. I would worry about the humidity rotting your nice cabinet.

    Yea its already got water damage from watering the Neps ontop of it ...I'm not really using it for anything its just in my Hall so i put the plants in/on it until i can finish renovations on the sun porch/greenhouse but since funds are low its on a hold for a while...grrrrrr... Im just worried about the Neps getting streached or to dry from the heat - then the cabnet hetting ruined.. I could re-stain it and whatnot later on if i have to. I put an overhead light but its just a small 60watt Day light bulb nothing as good as the 250watt cfl huge light bulb and reflector like i have for my HLs.

    Grrrrr.... I really wish the huge glass jewellery display case that i used to use last year was on my sun porch instead of in the basement.. But theirs no way itll fit up the stairs in this place.

    Kat, can't you put the pots on some sort of elevated thing in a tray? That way, you wouldn't get a ton of water directly on the wood. I'd still worry about the humidity, but a good weather-proof finish for wood decks and such ought to work for the walls and ceiling. You'd just have to strip the current finish and use the new.
