Presentation: Ikea Cabinet Hack: Converting an Ikea cabinet into a grow chamber

Come join us for the final presentation of the year with a talk by one of our very own members Rebecca Schwartz this month. For those of us with limited space or a less than ideal home growing environment this should be a real treat. She will be talking about her experience with tricking out an Ikea cabinet as a grow chamber for orchids. If you are part of any online orchid forums for indoor growing you have probably run across pictures of an Ikea cabinet outfitted with lights and filled with lush moisture loving foliage. The modern looking glass and metal curio or china cabinets from Ikea are perfect for conversion into a grow chamber. They tend to be fairly economical in terms of price and size  allowing the hobbyist to dabble in some of the more delicate specimens that require a bit more humidity than a home environment allows, while also providing a stylish display for your collection. I am looking forward to hearing all about it from Rebecca at our meeting on Wednesday October 11th 7pm at the Cheshire Senior Center. Please note that due to a scheduling conflict in Farmington, the meeting has been moved to the Cheshire location!
