Must be a bad year for apples, mine were almost non existent. I am having plenty of pears. I have a pot of pear preserves cooking as I type.

Sunlight is ambient or you could use "sunlight bulbs" in place of the heating elements. Humidity would be controlled by watering. Plants should be a breeze compared to temperature and humidity sensitive, arboreal, rainforest snakes.
Sounds like it should work!

I would think basil would winter over outside in your climate.

It's not really a belt, it doesn't get warmer north of us, it's more of a hat.
'the bitter winter hat area'
