    Default My HL chamber

    I renovated my HL chamber, put up nicer curtains that seal in humidity better and are nice and clear. I also added a sundew section. This is where I grow the majority of my carnivorous plants, as well as a large portion of my orchids. Temperatures range from 65-78F summer and 50-70F winter, lighting is supplied by a Sunblaze 48 T5 HO fixture, humidity is supplied by an ultrasonic humidifier, and in the winter, an aditional warm air humidifier for warmth. the chamber also contains an occillating fan.

    New curtains...they are crystal clear..the foggynes is the condensation on them.


    Sundew section add on.


    Pics of the inside to come soon.

    This might be a silly question: what does HL stand for?

    Great grow area!

    Ah....sorry about that, it means "Highland" as in high elevation plants that prefer cool temperatures.
