    It's 12' x 20', made of red western cedar on the out side and my glazing is on the inside. Air is moved by 2 52" ceiling fans and do a good job. Also has 160' square feet of wall area for mounted things. The walls are 8' high and 13' at the top of the roof.Has an overhead mist system and an under bench humidifer system.

    That's nice! Everything is so neat and organized. I really like the short terracota pots with wholes along the edge. Are those available commercially?

    Thanks for the comments. I grow mostly Pleurothallids, Bulbs and Dendrochilliums. I make most of my own pots. The only pot I found that gives me some weight when growing the mini's. The glazing is 5 mil, recycled milk jugs, double walled. Does a good job for me.

    Nice John! How many plants do you think you have?

    Where did you get those hanging terracotta pots with holes in them?

    John, can you explain your under bench humidifier system? I love you set up. I'm shooting for the same thing and would love to know details.

    Sorry for the rip off, 6X6, but really its a 12X12 area. Also its not really 12 X 20, the house is 8 sided. Its a octagon with sides elongated. The good stuff is on the other end, don't want people to see all that.
