Growing in southern Louisiana my orchids spend about half the year outside. Each year when I bring them in for "winter" I feel like they are not doing their best, especially the small stick mounts. So my plan this year is to keep the smaller ones in this aquarium that I found on craigslist and converted to a vivarium. I read through a bunch of threads on this forum and Orchid Karma's website to find an affordable way for my starter terrarium. Thanks to the people that have shared their experiences! This is a 48" x 18" x 13" aquarium and it sits on a cabinet that I built to keep all my growing supplies in. Here are some process shots. I still need to figure out ventilation and watering and move everything in. Moving the orchids in will happen some time in October when it starts to get in the 50s at night.
