    Default Basement orchid room finished

    At Last! I put in a couple of racks for small mounted plants. One for plants that like dryer conditions and one for the water lovers. Going to mount all of the Phal. when I have time. The temperature at the floor is around 60F and at the ceiling 70 so tried to organize things with that in mind as well. Has to bring my Euphorbia stock plants down for Christmas. They get messy this time of year.

    Looks like a pleasant place to pass your time. So nice and bright. I wonder how long it will stay so neat and organized?

    I was noticing how pristine the reflectors under the pots were.

    Just put them in today. I don't like the idea of using metal tray's but haven't been able to find the fiber glass ones yet.
