    Default My small growing area

    Hi All,

    Just thought I toss up couple pictures of my growing area. It's actually in my bathroom on the windowsill (??) that's facing E/NE so it gets the morning sun. The bathroom also got 3 skylights so it'll catch the sunlight bouncing off the walls as the day goes by. I keep the door closed and the humidity stays above 60% through out the day.
    This certain can't compare to all the wonderful growing areas I've been reading on this forum but I guess it suits me for now LOL. Please enjoy

    I actually have a fan going in the bathroom throughout the day. I usually open up the skylight window and the left window during the night to get that temperature drop. But I haven't really done so since I got back due to the fire. The air seemed fine today so I'll probably start it up again. I guess the daily shower helps with the humidity as well.. LOL

    Looks like a great setup to me for a small collection. I am sure the phals and oncids will love this treatment. Way to get creative!
