Hello everyone, welcome to my new thread!

I have put together a new setup and have pretty much automated the temperature and humidity settings.
The lights are on a 16 on 8 off schedule
Temperature is set to 72F day, 52F night. However the top shelf stays 5F-8F warmer when the lights are on.
Humidity is set at 80%.

Well enough talk, Here come some pictures :)

New Setup;

Thank you!

The long vine on the right is a N. ramispina I just got. It isn't flowering yet.
