    Since I have outgrown space from all three of my glass tanks, I finally came to the conclusion to upgrade to a grow tent. Of course, I had to purchase a huge size (96"x 48"x 78")!

    Some other highlights:
    Internal and external ventilation
    Lots of air flow
    12/12 light cycle
    Auto-humidity set at 95.5%
    Cat proof ;)

    I'm just super excited that I can continue my collection and not by suppressed anymore from buying due to limited space. It was killing me! :p

    I still have a lot of organization to do in the grow tent. And the best thing is that I can finally do is hang all my Dracula's and have the flowers actually last from them not bumping into other plants when they were confined into my small glass tanks. 20221211_132040.jpg 20221211_132122.jpg

    Is the humidity at 95.5% all of the time? From experience, I suspect that given a bit of time you will be in the same position you were before the grow tent: constrained by lack of space. :)

    Yes, it is constantly at that percentage. Although, I do have it set to drop 5.0%. Reminds me of going to the Caribbean every time I go in! haha

    I'm trying to resist on buying for now since I'm looking to pick up something nice at the Pacific Orchid Expo and orchids in the park.
