    Default Phrags and paph's

    So I rent space in a greenhouse and I have run out of space. Go figure. So I was thinking about setting up a grow area in my basement for the paph's and phrags. Does anybody have suggestions on lightning and temperature control? I feel that the daily temperature swings my be my biggest issue?

    I have an orchidarium that does well for smaller orchids, so I'm guessing with a good light setup you could certainly grow in a basement. Let us know what you decide to do and take photos of the process!
