    I believe Andrew uses a evaporative cooler & a misting system - invite him to the thread to share his experience ...

    Looks like a pretty decent unit with a nice large surface area for cooling. Will be way overkill for your 48 square feet of greenhouse but at least you will have the capacity to increase in size down the road ;>
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Yeah I hear you. Best to get decent equipment. Cheap equipment just ends up costing you more in the long run. You will need a water supply for the unit. It doesn't need to be RO or anything fancy. But it will use a fair amount of water on a hot dry day so a pressurized water supply line is in order. I think Andrew and maybe Paul might have experience with the unit you are looking at. Andrew would be good to ask about misting/fogging. You might still need some sort of system for humidifying. The evaporative cooler does a good job with cooling but the air is only moderately humidified in the process.
