Fungus Prevention?

The lighting creates warm showcases and thus are not good for the products place in them like gemstones, electronic stuff and even photographic gear. Humidity levels can create some surface to lost lustre or tarnish...etc. The small glass of water placed inside the display can in a way balance the dryness caused by the lights.

Another reason can also be due to feng shui and that usually would mean it being place at specific locations of the showcase interior or even exterior.

So I guess you can combine both to maximise both durability and money at the same time heheheh

Spot light gives out very high temperature thus causing damage to the products inside, so the RH% in there will be very very low, some more in an Air-con and very dry environment

during my time in army, they used to install a 5w bulb in a metal cabinet which store the optical equipments, this is the cheap way of DIY dry cabinet.

in camera shops, all are installed with air con, plus the display cabinet with down lights, those camera and lenses will become super dry.

so need some water to maintain the humidity.

Hope this help.

Probably it's also the heat that inhibits fungal growth... but I wouldn't recommend putting your stuff in heaty places. The lubricant grease, and oils in the rubbers will degrade or evaporate faster.
