I was going to buy the mareials to build a DIY chamber when I saw this moulded showerstall marked down to $75 cos if a nick in the finish. That's cheaper tahn the materials for my DIY project, including the $19.99 to rent the truck to drive it home.
I built a bench that will be able to be lowered as the plants on it grow. lowlight plants can go beneath the bench and hanging from the bench as there's ample space on all sides. the sides (and soon) back will be covered with plastic netting so I can hang mounted orchids on the walls and disquise the "white" look.
The door is a sliding shower door, unfotunately the cheap sliding doors are all "hammered glass" so here's a shot with the glass:
The tank isn't nearly as dark as the photo appears, I'm still learning this new camera! I will be putting another 2-4 40 watt tubes over the chamber which is 6.5" tall x 5" wide x 3"deep as I don't think the 240 watts from the old lowland tank will be enough for this new one.
Today is the first day the plants have been put in. I don't know how the humidity will be nor the temps but I have a therm/hygrom with a *memory so I can keep an eye on it for a *24 hour period. right now there is nothing but the lights supplying heat and a misting to create initial humidity.
