In the AOS Bulletin for February 1989 there are directions for building
a case that was used in Houston by Ron Hanko when he had to move his collection
from NJ to TX. He made the case himself and gives directions.
<br>It would help if we had some idea of your part of the country. It does
influence the problems you may encounter. good luck

<p>Before you undertake a major construction project you might like to
<br>my solution and see if you want to go the whole 10.5 yards.
<p>Try obtaining one of these: (note this is only one source for
this item -
<br>I just happened to know where to find it here)
<p>for humidity I use one of these:
<p>the # M001 fitted with K002 and K003 and K011
<p>in a bucket of water.
<p>I also have a clip on fan (also from Charley's Greenhouse) to keep up
<br>good air circulation.
<p>Mine is set up indoors adjacent to a large glass patio door and receives
<br>bright, indirect light.
<p>This setup will allow you to grow a variety of pleurothallids and other
<br>miniature, moisture-loving orchids. You'd be surprised how many
<br>can fit on the shelves, even allowing ample space for the bucket and
<br>and to not have anything in the direct blast of air from the fans.

<p>Too much stuff about to bloom to list it all but the current in-bloom
<br>favorite is a Notylia barkeri with what seems to be a hundred tiny
<br>on a single 3-4 inch inflorescence.
<p>PS: You might also like to look at:
