    Talking Heated Seedling "Greenhouse". My New Grow Rack Setup

    So, I was at Menards today and seen this and COULD NOT pass it up

    So, I have re-planted my existing DuneCraft Sarr seedlings in here in an attempt to get them really going this year. I have also planted some Drosera seeds in hopes of success. More pics to come later!!!








    I am excited about this

    looks like your off to a really good start

    even tho you dont have that many plants yet you should get at least one more of those lights per shelf. it will make a big difference

    Nice gear!! Definitely pick up some shop lights for that rack - they're like $18 per fixture for the 48" lights, plus a few bucks for each bulb. They definitely make a lot of difference. I had a few of my CPs (sarrs, vfts, and dews) under a pair of CFL bulbs and they seemed like they needed a bit more light... and now I have them growing under a supernova

    EDIT: I'm also curious what kind of humidity you can maintain in there. If you pick up a cheap thermo/hygro let me know!

    I want to find some 2' "shop Lights" that would span across the top of each layer perfectly.

    Thoughts?


    P.S. I am also curious of the humidity. Since I have put the Heated Greenhouse kit in there it is staying between 60 and 70 degrees F.

    You can snag some shop light fixtures in 12, 24, and 48 inch lengths that are pretty standard. 18 and 36 inch models are also available but you may have to search a little harder for bulbs. The fixtures are cheap and readily available at home depot (their house brand is Lithonia). You can also get a thermometer/hygrometer like the one I have in my grow rack (see my sig) for about $3.50.
