    @bruce....glad to hear your doing well, a calm in the waves is always a good thing

    @zainal....every morning I mist and every 3 days i water, then once a week i add two cups of water to the bottom......ive seemed to work out the perfect timing for evaporation.....yet unfortunatly I took a trip for two days and when i came back i misted later in the afternoon....bad idea seeing it didnt dry off enough before dark and i lost my Pleurothallis anfracta spike...so mad....its been four years and 3 spikes rotted....ive never seen it flower

    thanks everyone for your views and compliments...ill be sure to post more pictures soon

    Here is another old picture from the end of 2012...I have to find my digital camera USB cord and load some recent pictures. I have been holding off because I have four Orchids in spike and I want to load all the pictures at once. UGH!! these orchids take so long to bloom! Its like watching a snail cross the road....Orchids In Spike( Dendrobium victoria-reginae, Kraenzlinella anfracta, Oncidium Twinkle, Phalaenopsis equestris) cant wait!!!

    Me too.

    But I have a 10 and 50 already with water in them.

    One only has a few plants that are struggling. The other has fish. But they are in danger of getting evicted.

    Time will tell, but I would not be surprised to have at least my 10 gallon changed over before too long.

    I want to try mounted/hanging in it. I hear mounted/hanging struggle here in the open air (Too dry).

    it really depends if the right ratio is met for what type of plants you are growing, or if you are really good, have multiple micro climates from one side to the other side of the tank.... and also consideration on how big and enclosed you want your tank to be..(water:light:temp:air)
