    Wow....that thing is HUGE! Uh...the GREENHOUSE that is.

    It really looks bigger than you think it would be. Your plants look great. I'm jealous. You really have some handsome looking plants.

    I think I should just give up. The heat is beating me here.

    Good job! (You didn't really hear me say that...lol)

    He especially didn't hear you after having turned down your offer for his RO system! Don't give in, PAK.

    Well, I've added some stuff to my G/H since this post... So here are the changes....

    I've added a booster pump to my RO system, to increase pressure in the bladder tanks up to 80 PSI instead of the typical 15-25 PSI. The higher input pressure also makes water faster, and more products to waste ratio. Also with the pump comes a pressure switch to turn off the pump when the pressure is obtained. And a electronic solenoid to shut off the incoming water to the RO system when the desired pressure is reached. (these replace the hydraulic auto shut off, that used to shut off the water at 80% of the incoming pressure)
    It's a lot of hoses that looks pretty confusing huh? LOL


    Also, as you've seen in another topic, I've added a 1000PSI fogging system... I have this outside so it isn't in the harsh environment of the g/h... I have a multispeed supply/demand pump that pulls RO water from a holding tank up to the 1000PSI fogger pump. the supply/demand pump brings water to the pump at 40PSI no matter how much water is being used (thanks to the multi speed!) I've also installed a Low water pressure switch.. Just incase something happens... The fogger pump will not run dry and damage it. Here are pictures with my homemade cover and off the pump.... I have it right next to my swamp cooler so it pulls air though the housing and cools the equipment.


    Oh- I also added a rotating fan in there... specifically made for outdoors... I didn't take a picture of it, but you can see it inside on the left-hand side of the last 2 photos...
    Hope you enjoyed the "more tour" of my green house

    Wow man! I wish I had a greenhouse like that, it'd be really nice to have, it's a pain to have my CPs in my cramped room. They look so healthy too! Lots of pings.

    I LOVE your greenhouse and Sarrs! What is the PVC pipe for in that Sarrs tub and how does it work? I'm a bit new to this...

    That PVC actually has nothign to do with the sarrs... It's been disscussed a few times... One example is: http://www.terraforums.com/ib312....;hl=pvc
    You don't see a D. regia plant in it in this photo because of:
