    They are more suited to more of a bright shady area. Also yes a mini greenhouse would be fine for them as long as you can provide good venting and not overheat them and high humdity.

    Direct light in the early morning or late afternoon is fine but just bright indirect during the day would do. A mini ghouse would be fine but as NepG mentions.. Careful that it doesn't cook your plants if the sun hits it. The problem with venting is you will lose your humidity in an effort to keep the temps down from the sunlight hitting it.

    How big of a mini Ghouse are we talking? One of those terrarium type things thats a couple feet long? or something you can walk into??

    If it is one of those plastic terrarium like miniGhouses I would suggest keeping it inside and getting a couple shoplights to hang over it. It is much easier to control the temperature and environment. As soon as you start talking sunlight.. things can get very complex in an effort to balance light/temperature/humidity etc

    To answer your question.. ultrasonic humidifier

    Hmm under a tree may or may not be too dark. I think it might be too little light. I woudl suggest hanging a piece of cloth like an awning about 2 feet above your mini greenhouse/chamber thingie. Yes I also would like to know what size you would be talking about.
