Oh wow! What temperature do you keep in there? Different for day and night or the same? And humidity?

First, there were temperatures from + 6C (43F) to + 12C (53F). But today I replaced the thermostat and the temperatures changed from +10C (50F) to +14C (57F).

Day and night temperatures are the same. This is not correct, but I don't know how to fix it.

Hygrolon blocks with plants dry out very quickly. I spray it 2 times a day. But the condensation on the walls remains, the humidity has not been measured yet. We should do this

How am I only now seeing this amazing thread?? Such a beautiful paradise you've built!

The fridge is perfect for your Dendrobium tower. How did you add the lighting?

Excellent, as always Akhenaten. And that fridge setup is like a little mystery tour just by itself. Can't wait to see it all start growing together.

Your temperature lowering at night...I would think it's possible to somehow connect it with a smart thermostat, like in our homes, so it automatically moves the temp between day and night? Don't ask me how, as I wouldn't have a clue. But there must be a way to do it.

Yes! There are temperature controllers with time settings like this one. Popular in the fermentation world as well. I use this one to keep my fridgarium below 70°F in the day and 60°F at night.

Wow!!! I love it

But what will you do with that beautiful cloche now?

That small sphere with magnet is brilliant. I missed that (or have forgotten )

I have a Restrepia cymbula in flower right now that looks a lot like many of the flowers you have shown. I could not find it when I searched so maybe you need to add it lol

And now I have new Restrepia with flower.
I bought it like Restrepia dodsonii. But it has flower like Restrepia cymbula But! Cymbula has round leaves, and my Restrepia has long leaves.

I added a tray of distilled water to hold the hygrolone "stones" of the blocks.
On the shelf above lies a horizontal block of cork with Masdevallia racemosa & prodigiosa + some kind of pleura, I don't remember.



Wow, how many questions

theorchidapartment, welcome



In the roof of the refrigerator there was a hatch for a stationary lamp. I removed that lighting and put a LED 150 W floodlight on top of the roof. This spotlight is very hot. A plastic tray was laid on it, it contains 2 liters of water. This is cooling due to heating and evaporation of water and additional increased humidity on the balcony.

Take my congratulations
But my cymbula is very sick and practically died, after very hot Syberian summer 2020.
