I've had a heliamphora minor for a while, and it's growing decent, but I really want it to thrive. Is there a way to convert a minifridge into a simple highland growchamber that's warmer during the day with a temp drop at night? And if not a minifridge, what else could I do. Any help is appreciated.

I don't know a lot about this but I have a few ideas, since mini-fridge are great insulators, you could put a reptile heat bulb, and attach it to a Thermostat they sell for them, and set that on a timer for only daytime, obviously you'd need to add a grow light too, idk if it would work but just my idea.

Haven't used this site much, so sorry if something is out of place. Thanks for the idea, I may look into something like that, just dont won't overwork the fridge or anything in the long run.
