Thanks for the update Patrick. They are looking good. I'm pleased to see that the condensation I was concerned might be a problem, has not materialised. When I've used plastic planters here in the UK without a means of drainage the condensate puddled in the bottom and pollen and hive debris fell into it and rotted, so I doubt an aquarium hive like this would work in our climate, but great to see them doing so well in yours.

Barbara, first of all, thanks for taking the time to watch. Smile But I would be lying if I tried to claim there has been no condensation problem.

At this point, I'm not sure if it was the time of year being the midsummer, or if it was before I took that bar off to allow more ventilation. The proof will be during July and August to see if it will really work properly. If not, I'm going to have to make some adjustments.

I'm glad to be the guinea pig for now. I'll keep you all updated. Smile
