A couple of photos of my grow tent after a complete strip down to move an electric socket, applied bubble wrap to the back and top for insulation, moved the electrics inside in a weather proof box, cleaned the humidity trays and added a humidifier. Hopefully this will encourage the spikes on the Teborchii, Vampira and Saulii to flower.

These look amazing - wish I had the knowledge and space to have a set-up like this of my own ;)

Andy,

I'm just a beginner like you I started with a couple of supermarket hybrids and then the bug hit me. This is a 2m x 2m x 1m grow tent in my garage and the rest of my collection is on various windowsills. There's a thread somewhere about forum members grow areas and in that you can see my windowsills. From humble beginnings I now have a collection of just short of 90 plants. The one I'm most looking forward to flowering is my Dracula Saulii. The tent is where I grow my Masdevallias and Draculas as they like high humidity and cool to cold conditions and fairly low light.
