Default great set up, congrats

on everything growing so well. You are going to have to post photos when all the v's and their grexes are flowering.
That closet is going to smell sweet !
Are you going to take any out into the house for display ?

I see you also use egg crate. My Home Depot doesn't cut it to size and I had to use a hacksaw to cut to fit my water trays and also little squares to stand my pots on....what a pain. Seeing those photos reminded me how great I feel with that job done !

Great looking spaces Cody! Your collection has grown in leaps and bounds-but I knew that I hope you are going to send some of those photos to the society president for this month's presentation which is parade of growing spaces! Contact me if you need info.

Each level in the closet has two 3' T5's, while the free stand has two 4' and one 3' T5.

I didn't realize T5's were that bright to provide that much light that far away from the plants. If I may ask, how often do you have to change the bulbs? and about how much do they cost per bulb?

Each is a SunBlaster fixture, and it originally comes with the bulb in it. I've replaced two so far, and they were just over a year old. Each new bulb is $12.

I like to use a side cutters or wire cutters instead of a saw.

That is Phal. ATL Crossing, a hybrid bred and grown by a member of my local orchid society. Since it is 4n, I decided to sell it, and now someone else in my OS has it!
