    Wardian Case (Grand Cayman model) Advice

    Interesting idea. I was a marine engineer (Maritime) and that’s the sort of Rube Goldberg scheme I tend to ponder as well. I.E. for the humidity issue I’m playing with trays of water, an air pump and aquarium air stones.

    Wardian Case (Grand Cayman model) Advice

    Thats my plan at the moment. If I could figure out how to simply cool the tank I might try cooler growing species but not willing to A/C the whole garage.

    Wardian Case (Grand Cayman model) Advice

    Thank Eric, The case has two 4 in muffin fans. I have one moving air down and the other up which seems to be giving air movement. The unit came with 3 two tube light fixtures which seems to add approximately 10 degrees. I am concerned about summer temps if I try anything other than tough...

    Wardian Case (Grand Cayman model) Advice

    I was sure I sent this previously but can’t find my response on the thread so here is an in process photo. I have now cleaned everything up and found some little bits I needed. I should have it reassembled next week then to figure out what to put in it. Probably mostly mounted miniatures.
