    Beautiful, very well done. Are the roots kept damp from the water in the tank of do you have to hand water? What animals if any are you going to add?

    Thanks for the replies!

    2in10 in answering your question, yes I have to spray the plants once a day. Not sure on animals yet. I am going to add a few small fish in a week or two. I am thinking Zebra Danios.

    Looks cool! Low light and humid sounds like the perfect environment for phalaenopsis. They are epiphytes so they can be grown attached to things like logs.
