    Heli's magical greenhouse adventure

    so... it looks like I will be upgrading my setup soon. Probably when I move at the end of the summer. I was hoping to do a miniature greenhouse sort of like the one mksmith posted in the indoor greenhouse thread. I did a couple blueprints as you can see here... any suggestions?
    I was looking at either this

    or this
    http://www.littlegreenhouse.com/flowerhouse-plant.shtml (plant house 5)
    which one do you think would be better or is there another model that I should use.

    @Kyle, I think 4 fans may be overkill but I am not sure about the humidifier. Do you think one humidifier could sufficiently get a 6x6x6 area to over 80%?

    The fans may not be overkill, my small setup needs a fan per shelf, and the area is much smaller... But they also dry out the setup

    yea I am more concerned about humidity. The AC should take care of the temp. I think I will just go with 4, if there is to much air movement I can just lower their power.

    Yep, that works! Mine are on min power, and needed to put flow limiters to keep from having to water every day.

    is your setup indoors or out? Do you have a humidifier? I will be using a hygrotherm so it should be able to keep it humid.

    Humidifier broke, need a new one... I keep breaking thermometers and hygrometers, never thought of investing in an actual hygrotherm.

    oh ok. Also, what lighting do you use? I am debating what to get, would 4' 4 t5s or 2' 4 t5s be better?
