Absolutely exquisite. It's like I've stepped into a rainforest. A real work of art. :

Thanks! A friend says I’m keeping a rainforest as a pet.

Thank you so much for posting that list! It's so amazing that you're able to grow so many species in there.

That Nepenthes is sooo small and cute!

Also be sure to put that Sphag capillifolium in the brightest possible spot for a gorgeous red when mine got toasted this summer I almost cried.

The discovery of this deep red Maxillaria schunkeana root inspired me to take a tour of reds and pinks in my tank this morning. Why is it red? No idea - looks like the growing tips of a few roots are that color. So cool!


Lepanthopsis astrophora, I never get tired of these flowers:


Beautiful reddish purple leaves of Meiracyllium trinasutum:


Neoregelia 'Fireball', one of the smaller Neos at 6x6" full grown:


And for some reason, the Neo's pup that I recently separated is this brilliant, glowing pink:


Dendrobium laterale's adorable pseudobulbs:


Pleurothallis prolifera can take on this deep red when grown in high light, and I think some clones are naturally predisposed to this color. Mine is from Ecuagenera, it was this red when it arrived and the new growth is coming in red as well:


My Nepenthes with a bit of a "sunburn" (but it seems happy):


Tillandsia ionantha 'Guatemala' with pretty pink tips, and Tillandsia capitata 'Dominican Republic', which is maroon when wet and a silvery purple when dry:


My Begonia bipinnatifida is a cutting that isn't rooting well yet, so not very photogenic, but the tops of the leaves are deep green and the bottoms are maroon. There are a few plants like that on my wish list: Selaginella erythropus and a mini African violet, 'SK First Love'.

I'm hoping the Nepenthes stays small, it's supposed to be both a small and tolerant hybrid and I don't have much more room for it. It languished and lost all its pitchers over the summer, I think it got too dry when my temps were up in the 80s for weeks. After I started hand watering it, it perked up, and over the last year in total it has put out two pups that are growing in the pot with it.

I don't actually know which Sphag is which. I bought a set of different Sphags from BP Zoological Supply, and they had obviously been grown outside and were crawling with all sorts of bugs and mites and who knows what. Soaking them in clean water didn't help at all, so I panicked and did a mild bleach treament, which killed almost all of them and bleached the color out of the rest. Lesson learned: cannot bleach Sphagnum, most likely the only way to clean it would be carbon dioxide bombing. So now I have a few patches of live (clean) Sphag in different spots, but no idea which is supposed to be red, which is supposed to be orange, and which is supposed to be green.

I started out with Fan 1, but I was having mold issues on the other side of the tank near the waterfall so I added Fan 2, sitting on a ledge above the water way at the back. Fan 2 circulated the air so much better that I eventually just removed Fan 1 and I'm using it in a different tank. I will say that most fans would not last long in that position with the amount of mist and water that gets on it, but I have CoolerGuys IP67 waterproof fans and I love them.

Here are some updated pics. I moved the Spanish moss around to create clusters that hang from the lid, and have added a number of plants.





I love Angraecoids but they do not love me, so I was very surprised to see blooms on this Angraecum distichum out of nowhere (didn't even notice it budding):

Absolutely amazing!!! Yours looks like what I envisioned for mine (working on it....). Thanks for taking the time to post all of the plant and equipment names. I think I should put an internal fan in mine and was just wondering what would work, so very helpful!
