harld---i've heard that the fogging systems work very well.  i think good air 
movement is very important for growing healthy plants.  it compensates for a 
world of 'insufficiencies'.  i am near the coast, north of tampa, and yes, it 
is as humid here as in the houston area, but still not the degree of humidity 
you'd find in the habitats of the 2 anthuriums. i grew both outdoors till i 
built my greenhouses about 10 yrs ago, and they did fine, but the occasional 
storms/winds would wreck the beautiful, long foliage.  they grew anyway.   A. 
warocqueanum has been at low elevation, less than 100 m, near the coast in 
Colombia.....so, not so very different from our situations.  by the way, i have 
about 80% shade and grow these species in large slat baskets in a loose, epiphyte 
mix, with lost of water and fertilizer year-round.  my greenhouse is 30 x 45, 
so a 54" fan is quite large for this size.
