    Hi Everyone, I am interested in creating a Paludarium tank for orchids. Does anyone have experience growing orchids in a Paludarium? Thanks!

    My two scents, you will combat humidity levels of stress with a palladium tank. Have you looked at bigger glass terrarium tanks with glass doors? Perhaps with custom glass lid on top? Humidity levels that are not constant will just stress out an orchid.

    I know people do these types of tanks with orchids, but I try to avoid stress as much as possible. Not to mention there are species that need a certain percentage of humidity to thrive.

    Unfortunately our search function is still very broken.

    That is not OK.
