    Sounds awesome! But I think you are really going to want to find an automated system for cooling, are the ice bottle wearing on you yet?

    Not yet. At the moment I can't afford it. I still have to go into the other room and turn on both terras, and one involves bending down and plugging in/unplugging the cord. It won't wear on me for a while yet.

    You're off to a great start! i would suggest you get a fan first and see if you can do without the fogger.

    Tweaking the setup again.

    In an attempt to keep the cold in longer, I wrapped a second layer of Mylar around the first, and created a "door" that is stuck to the front at night and is peeled back during the day. I don't want it to get hotter during the day, just colder at night. I may even open up the "crisper drawer" vent under the doors if it gets too hot. The back is also single ply. I have more Mylar around, somewhere. Sounds like a trip to the dollar store is in order.

    We shall see!





    Cutout for the lamp. You can see where it is two ply, and where I ran out of Mylar.

    Moar updates.

    I was up early, and caught the thermometer reading 62 degrees. Success! All of the plants I moved into the terra. are doing very well and are plumping up. The humidity is still hovering between 85 and 95 percent.





    I got some water lettuce, and I put it in the bottom of terra., for now. It looks nice.
