Reply #1 on 9 Jan, 2008, 9:31 Wow! That's a huge chamber to be placed indoors. Cool! What material are the walls of the chamber? Is it wood? I am really interested to see the progress and how you are building it. Need to always find better ways to keep my plants happier. So I want to see how others are growing their plants.

So you will only grow ampullarias in the chamber? Hmm, why not other species?... Actually I am also growing more amps in my grow chamber than any other species in the house. I place the rest of my other species in the garden. By the way, where are you staying? Can you indicate your location under your profile please. Thanks.

Reply #2 on 9 Jan, 2008, 16:19 I' ve put where I leave in my profile, I leave in France.

The chamber is made of wood, my english is too bad to explain what I want to do, so I' ll show you the progress with pictures.

I only want to grow ampullarias because I enjoy them a lot and there are many different colors.

Any pictures of your ampullarias ?

Reply #3 on 9 Jan, 2008, 16:38 Make sure to heavily caulk the seams with a silicon based caulk. If you don't plan on having the temperature in the 90s (F), then you can use water-based caulk. Just in case, I'd also put at least 4 mil plastic sheeting underneath the chamber, and protruding at least 1' outwards from the chamber in all directions. You don't want your wooden floors ruined....

Hey dave i think the material for the wall are "MDF Board"...

Medium-density fibreboard (MDF or MDFB) is an engineered wood product formed by breaking down softwood into wood fibers, often in a defibrator, combining it with wax and resin, and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure. It is a building material similar in application to plywood but made up of separated fibers, not wood veneers. It is denser than normal particle board.
