    Default New corner of new cabinet inhabited

    I'm still trying out different sorts of orchids in different parts of my new cabinet: no idea what will prosper in here and not. This time it's my new Masdevallia hybrids that will have to try out the conditions in the cabinet. On the warm side, but the humidity should be on the right side. I hope. (As usual, any comments, ideas or warnings are welcome!!)

    Looks pretty cool, can we see a picture from a little further back? It looks like we can't see the entire habitat. But still Awesome, makes me want to clear off a corner shelf and modify it accordingly.

    OH my oh my!!! Awesome!!! Now I am envisioning what craziness I could do with all of my orchids. But I don't dare doing anything crazy until I for sure decide where I want to buy a house, or decide to continue renting the one I am in and see if the rent to own option is still available. Either way, something like that will be happening around here for me any time soon. But thanks for the awesome picture just the same!!!

    Stephenw429: Yes, I would probably think twice before considering moving a cabinet :-D! But you're right, it has really been great fun so fsr to work with the cabinet :-).

    Impgs: I see this as a very longterm project, so when there are more plants in the cabinet I hope they'll all take turns flowering :-).
