[pleurothallid-l] wardian case plans

I recently built a case myself for my 25 (or so) Draculas.

I used much of the information at the following link to create my own:


I made adjustments as necessary. I see about 85-90% humidity during the 
day and I adjust it so there is about 70% humidity at night using timers 
for my ultrasonic humidifiers. I am using 6 fluorescent tubes above. 
With some lava rock on the floor of the case and constant air movement, 
I am seeing about a 5-6 degree drop inside the case compared to the room 
temperature. My Draculas seem to love it. They have been putting out new 
growth ever since I put them in there.

Hope this helps...
