    Another Update!

    View of the back:


    Back Left - Mainly hanging area and plants on the ground that like lower light leves:


    Back Right - Bench area with mostly medium sized plants that like higher light:


    Front Right - Again medium sized plants. Also the circulation fan (oscillating), heater, thermos, etc:


    Front Left - Propogation area. Check out the Albo vine. I was going to cut it now that its about 2 meters but won't as I'm hoping it'll flower:

    Thanks guys. Unfortunately its filling fast with new additions and growth, so I'm not sure of what next. Possibly a large hoop-house.

    JC,

    Don't ask about the $$$!....GH was second hand and other than the heater, thermo and fan everything else is DIY. I really couldn't put a figure on it as its constantly evolving.

    Jess,

    It's an Eden-812. I believe they are manufactured in New Zealand.

    Enviro. controls:

    - Circulation fan runs 24/7.
    - Mid summer is 2 layers of 50% shade clothe. Either end of summer is a single layer. Winter is no shade cloth but the entire interior lined with bubble wrap.
    - The heater has and independent fan and thermo. Fan runs 24/7 and thermo is set to a min of 12C. This is only to keep tabs on nighttime lows.
    - I have another thermo that controls a single misting jet. The jet is positioned directly in front of the heater fan to distribute the mist. Thermo is set to turn the jet on at 25C and above.
    - Roof vent is open all year other than mid winter when I am trying to trap heat.
    - I manually control ventilation with the sliding door. Generally I just leave it ajar through the hotter weather.

    I hope to add an evaporative cooler before next summer and maybe one of those automatic roof vent openers.

    Almost a year on yet again so update time.

    I must admit that the picture quality has dropped off, as it is quite hard to get in to the GH now and position for a good wide photo. Vines and tendrils everywhere!

    I am at a point where I desperately need to start taking cuttings to control the vine size, but I have no floor-space left for the extra pots it will create. Many of the larger vines ran in to the top of the GH and destroyed their lead growing tip this last summer. Now they are all sprouting lateral growing tips on mass. However, for now I'm just letting it go feral until I come up with plans for a bigger GH.
