Hi Draikan,

Here is the entire tank. However right now I have 2 mini hybrid phals and the Sigmatostalix Radicans in bloom

The temp average is 26 with 75-90% humidity. Lighting is low, since during the noon hours I don't turn the led on since is 40 outside. I do water heavy everymorning since a month ago. I have 1 fan on the left side On 27/7, as your suggestion (Thks).
The only one suffering a lot is the Dracula Janetiae.


This is the tank



These are the blooms: look carefully, there is a Samurai in the below pic

Hi Tonio,

I use this SanLight 10W

FLEX10 - Compact Linear Horticultural Led Lighting - 10W - GrowLED

I could put some extra lighting but so far with this seams enough, the more demanding plants in terms of lights have bloomed

Well, it looks really good! I see a lot of light green new growth, and even some fresh roots.

Did your bugs/mold clear up?

Hi!!!

I haven't posted anything here for a long time, but I have changed part of my indoor growth setup; now I am growing into 5 tanks (terrariums), each of them adapted to the orchid group or a group of orchids with the same environment needs. Since my work duties are increasing, I'll have less time especially for the plants that require more humidity and special care, therefore I needed to try to automatize or at least optimize the care (auto-care) as much as possible.

I have changed the name of the thread to TANK ATTACK since is not only one (1) project anymore, now I have 5 beautifully challenges; let see how it goes!!


*****
1 TANK is my original "test" tank with a mix of Cold Forest Mini species.
2 TANK only Masdevallias
3 TANK only Paphiopedilum Group
4 TANK only Phalaenopsis Novelties
5 TANK only Draculas
*****




And this is what is going on in some of them:

TANK No.1 - Forest Species






TANK No. 4 - Phal Novelties or Species

Thanks!!!

It has given me many hours of thinking "how do I do it?", a lot of Wallapop to find the terrariums, and almost the divorce!!

man sade, that is a plant lovers heaven in your living room! quick question, which light do you use for your phal tank, and do you have anything between the light and the plants, or just the light straight on the top of the tank? are you using fans inside?

and how are you getting it cool enough for the dracs?
