    So I remodelled my house, and one of the results is a new room in the basement (half underground). It's a small room, about 8 x 12 feet, but big enough for all my three racks. Here's the overall:


    Here's the rack on the right, which has a tank on the lower shelf, and a 400 watt MH light up above (sorry, the MH lights always make the photos look like crap). There are heliamphora in the terrarium above:


    Here's the center rack, which has all 48inch tube shop lights and cheap bulbs. It grows the best:


    Here's the left rack, which has fluorex lights above, and shop lights below. I also like this setup, as long as the fluorex lights keep working. Some of these neps are getting out of control:


    There is a small window to the outside from this room, plus a door that leads to the rest of the basement. I should be able to control the climate really easy in here. I'm open to suggestion on improving this room, so if anyone has anything I should add, just say the word. So far, the humidy has been high, and it warms to about 78 during the day, then down to 58 or so overnight. I'm a little worried about heat during the summer, but during our rare heat waves, I think I can open the door to the basement to keep it cool. I'm trying to grow everything from N. ampularia to N. villosa in here, so wish me luck!

    Kirk, that's H. neblinae. I just got it from Tony, and I'm growing it out on the rack. I think I'm going to move it under something soon, but it's been raining, and the air is humid and cool, so it's fine for now.
