I will keep you all posted on what happens over the next month or so. I'm hoping for some good things. The placement of the "out spout" is as good as I can get: not too high where it would negatively impact the Tillandsia; not too low where it would be useless to some of the other tropical species, such as the ficus, the vines, and some of the emergents that are either present....or will be present....
Bill--Thank you! And thank you for your help with this. I knew that Lenny had done this before in his tank with GREAT results, but I wasn't sure of the humidifier he had used. You nailed it, perfectly! Not sure if Grimm used the same one or not. But, it works great, at least for the effect!
Thanks Marko!! Yeah, I am kinda blasting it right now because I'm uber excited about it. I think that the plan I have is to have it come on each day four times for about an hour or so: once about an hour after all the lights have come on; once about 2/3's the way through the day, once right after the lights turn off, and once a few hours after that. The outlet for the mist is not too high up in the set up, and falls immediately to cascade over some of the tropical species, and there isn't much in the way of Tillandsia getting the direct effect. It's really dry in this house, and I don't imagine that this will raise the humidity much more than a few % at the height where the Tilly's are. I'll keep an eye on it. Thanks for the tip, though!!!
Thanks Izabella! It adds an element of mystery to it.....not sure if I can say I planned it to be that way. You have better eyes and creativity than I do!!
