    Av8tor1: Beautiful plants as always. I wanted to ask you, do you have that green house plant stand unclosed? where humidity can build up. Or are you're plants growing just on the stand with the t5s over them in open air? If you had any photos of your set up of the whole stand from your point of veiw I would love too see them. Again thanks for sharing.

    EC,

    It is enclosed on three sides with aluminum foil covered foam panels (home construction). The front is simply covered with clear plastic drop cloth for easy access.

    Very simple and utilitarian...

    These are indeed impressive.
    I'm also interested in how your system works. Do you use a humidifier and some kind of cooler (fridge/Peltier based)?

    very very basic...

    old pic from before the plants moved into their new home

    The front is draped in clear plastic drop cloth for easy access
    (T12's in that image BTW)

    Airflow system

    Two 120mm low Cfm fans on separate power supplies, each is capable of preventing overheating should one fail. Both are on the same timer as the light. One power supply is hanging on the wall (homemade) and the other is the box sitting on the side rack. (A 7 amp supply which is also feeding the LED project)
    (excuse the mess, It's a basement and I wasnt expecting company LOL)

    Humidification system

    A sunpentown su-2000 ultrasonic humidifier with variable output. Hosed output runs into the rack slightly below the fans. The hose runs uphill the whole way so any condensation can run back into the humidifier and get recycled.

    Humidifer is also on the same timer as the lights.

    Lights, fans and humidifier all run together

    Older Video


    The combination of fans, humidifier and fresh air inlet provides evaporational cooling for the rack. As you may have noticed in the "top shelf images" some of the helis are within a couple inches of the T5's

    With this setup redundancy is critical IMHO

    Kind of like the mechanic who drives the car that you have to shake, wiggle and jiggle to get started....

    ummmm come to think of it, Ive had a lot of those too hehehehehehe
