As for the watering you can setup an automatic system but most of the time you can water every couple of days and they will stay wet enough.
A lot of inspiration for this build is from visiting Andy's orchids to pick up a small specimen of Bulbophyllum lasiochilum for my dart frog viv. There I saw the potential to keep tropical species in a residential neighborhood in southern California. As for watering I do plan for it to be automated, since i'm to lazy to get up every day and water plants . That job sounds really cool, I hope in high school/college I can get a job working with tropical plants/amphibians and reptiles.
