Hi Stephan!

Are you on Facebook?  Most of our pleuro people are in our group on Facebook where you can reach people with some answers.  If not, I can pass this on to the group and let you know what they say.  


Thank you for asking!  Have a great day!

Lynn O’Shaughnessy

Subject: [pleurothallid-l] Wardian cases


Hello all,


I've been given the opportunity to setup a sophisticated Warden case.   It's rather small at 48" x 24" x 24 but I have complete control

over light intensity and spectral characteristics, temperature, humidity, and what I can best describe as a cooled and humidified breeze via air exchange to keep the air from becoming stagnant.


I can keep the temperature as cool as 45F through most of the year but always no warmer than 55F if required.


I've grown some Dracula species in the past with various degrees of success but I'd like to try some of the more difficult pleurothallids with this new environment.  I'm especially interested in miniatures given the small space I have to work with.


Any suggestions for particular specimens would be appreciated.  I'd like to prove the concept before I build a large case and start the obsession.


Thanks and regards,
