Default Vivarium for cool growing orchids..in progress.. Literally cool...(build)

So, I've been working on this project for a while now.. a couple of months of waiting and getting all the equipment..

Still not done.. but on my way ..


This tank will be for cool growing orchids like Draculas and Masdevallias..

and Pleurothallis.. and more.. but only micro miniature ones hopefully hahha .. its only a 10 Gallon fish tank that i converted and drilled holes into..


here is my progress

and equipment..

i'm using a peltier system to cool off the enclosure..


and a total of 3 fans that are outside..

Hector, this looks awesome! I was always wondering how can someone create cold environment, this is just way to technical for me, but it looks great! Did you put already your Dracula lotax in? I bet that one will do great, and the size is perfect:-) I can't wait to see the progress and more pics soon! Happy New Year!

How cold it gets inside? and what's the day/night difference you can achieve?

I have to rotate my photos on the computer, save them rotated, then rotate them back and re-save them. Your computer receives data from your phone that indicates the phone's orientation when the photo was taken, but that information is lost when you attach the photo to your post. By deliberately rotating and re-saving the photos, you are replacing that information with the computer's orientation.

Another solution is to always hold the phone in landscape mode when taking photos.
