Default A fun little experiment....

So I really wanted a central location for all of my minis and thought something like this would be fun to try..... I'm keeping a close eye on it so if I have to dismantle it I can.... *Note- Just having fun with this- I really have no idea what I'm doing 😆

Question... is this fully enclosed? It appears to be. Is there a fan to provide air movement? Moving air prevents a whole pile of potential problems.

Air flow is one issue I am concerned with, I can keep the entire front open if need be, and even if it is closed it is in no way air tight.... The smaller mounted orchids are still drying out about every other day (so not much different than they were outside) so I'm hoping that is a good sign.... I check on it daily... The live moss was in there for about 3 weeks before I added the other plants and had no issues....

That white Phalaenopsis may serve as your "canary in the coal mine" ... those white flowers will show the spots of botrytis and other fungal infections if the spores are around, those will hopefully be affected before the mini-orchids.
