Alright thanks for the confirmation everyone.

Thanks for the tip. The African violets will most likely get their own shelf so I will make sure to cater to their needs.
Here's the outline I've made for each shelf.
1. African violets (mostly variegated types)
2. Phals, maudiae type paphs, miltonias
3. Planted aquariums
4. Planted aquariums
5. Mini oncidiums, mini dendrobiums, mini cattleyas
I'll probably end up getting a second rack because I doubt I can actually fit that much onto just one without making plant maintenance troublesome. At least with a second rack I can have a shelf dedicated to blooms since a lot of these plants have tall spikes, and even more room for tanks and plants.
