    You are asking a group of people that build entire rooms for their "chids"....and you want to know if building a terrarium to monitor temp, etc is strange?? Dude...you are SO asking the wrong group! And yes my room is almost finished...got my weather station yesterday and the potting bench should arrive shortly. I was never called normal anyways....

    Why don't you try googling a year study for the temp varience in Tibet. It seems to me that you should be able to setup a really nice table grid for the babies so that you can get on your way with the growth process. Have you thought about adding another alliance to the mix so that you are not doing all of that for just one variety? DO the research! Good Luck

    I have seen a upright glass fronted fridge you see in supermarkets converted for growing cool orchids .
    Personally i think you are stark raving bonkers (in a nice way ;-)
