    Looking good, do we get to see one of the whole greenhouse? One more question, are those hard water stains on your plants if so could be the reason the sibuyanensis didn't make it.
    I love lamp...

    Ive had that problem for soo long and I have been trying to fix it but no luck. My greenhouse is cooled by a mister fan and out of all the filters Ive tried none of them have worked good enough.
    Maybe I should get it hooked up to a RO system ??
    If anyone has any suggestions on filters or different cooling methods that would be great!

    Heres a pic of the greenhouse

    Heres a pic of the fail filter
    Photobucket

    The water w/ out the filter is about 200 ppm... very. very. hard
    I dont know what the water hardness is with the filter on.

    low 80s, but it can get really bad at times
    ex: low 100s
    If I left the mister and fan off the temp would skyrocket to 110.
