    Looking good Travis. May I recommend some air movement inside the GH? That is key. All is looking great though. Can get a water timer from Lowes around 40 bucks and a misting kit. Set it to come on four tines a day or three or whatever works for you. Then have it come on during the hottest time of the day and with the fans will help cool it too.

    Also be very careful. Yo know how hot your car gets in the sun?? A closed up GH will do the same thing. That's why air movement and if you must vent it or use some other form of cooling. My 3rd GH even vented with fans still got into the 90's and 100's. The orbit mist kits and fans of GH #4 have proven really effective in conjunction with a window unit AC. My GH is not vented to the outside to maintain humidity. My vented GH #3 would suck out the humidity from the GH and still be hot. GH #4 had 98% humidity when I went into it today.

    I know, right. I walk in and it feels like a sauna..
    I'll be keeping a close watch on things. So if I see any sort of decline, I'll be sure to move them back into the den. Just wanted to get things into the sunlight for as long as possible.

    Wifey says you sent a text. I'll get back to you when I pick her up from work, since she has the cell.
    I'll try not to forget this time.
    All the color you see is from the T5HO's indoors. The plants haven't even been outside for 3 whole days yet.. and it's been dark and rainy for most of those days.
    I'll agree it looks amazing once I see some stripes!!

    Does the water timer come with a misting kit? I've been window shopping for a misting kit on ebay. Some great deals on there.. But wondered how I was going to automate it.
    Also, there's no electricity out there. So no way to run a fan..
    The GH does have 3 windows on each side of it. So with all of them open there's usually a nice breeze blowing through.

    I absolutely love that plant. Can't wait for it to get some size on it.. Definitely won't disappoint.
    Thanks again for coming through for me.

    Thanks hun.. It's been crying out for some REAL sunshine. But at least it survived the winter indoors under lights.

    Long extention cord or even solar setup. Harbor freight has solar panels that should run a fan. I haven't seen a timer with the mist kits. I like orbits stuff but there are many misting kits. My timers are orbit because that's what Lowes carries. Automation is easy. Just need then stuff to do it. And if there is any way to get a fan powered out there then I'd do it. It will keep down on rots and things too.

    Just trying to avoid spending more money on extras than I did the GH. Would much rather invest that money into a more permanent setup.
