well i just finished my first test with my germination box i made, the 2 X 65W fluorescent blubs where Epic fail since the temp gone wild to 35+ after a couple of hours and the humidity dropped to 50. i gave the box to cool down and replaced my 2 X 65W fluorescent blubs on 2 X 40W weaker ones and drilled another couple of holes for good air circulation.
I will post some pictures i took, they taken just before the second run test.
the box from the outside:
the cover with reflecting cover with light reflecting cover:
a few pics from the inside of the box, note the holes on the sides for the air circulation
and the holes in the soil boxes for lower watering, and if anyone wants to know
the soil going to be about 10cm distance from the bulbs:
the humidity meter i use for that box:
the box as a complete and after turning it on in a dark room:
so for now i have to wait another few hours to find how stable the conditions in it.
I have a few questions that may help me to understand what to improve next.
First, if it was in full working condition with 1-2cm water on the bottom of the box and soil in the soil boxes do the humidity and the temp will improve on some proportion ?
Second question is if there is a need for another fan in the box for the out-take? since the only fan on the box is in-take, tho i can use some interesting thing i made to switch the fan direction after some time.
Last question is if there is a need to drill another couple of holes for the air circulation? or not to add since it may be to much or its better off to add another fan and such.
