    Now why can't the rest of the country be like that. Anywho. Very nice grow room I am thinking about doing something like that in a shed. Setup with air conditioning and fogers to grow highlanders and ultra-highlanders. I figure if I can insulate the room enough the Ac's shouldn't need to run to much to keep the temps 80 or below, and just set up another AC to run at night to get the temps down to 65 or so. Thanks for the Idea of Mylar on the walls too. That is something I hadn't thought of before.

    You have some AWESOME plants growing there. Thanks for sharing!

    Shiny! I should do that in my spare room. I don't think the house is humid enough though... I like what you've done, Caps. Are those T5's you're burning in the first pic?

    I too have a question about the humidity. Is your house naturally humid enough that with all the plants they create a nice balance of moisture in the air? Or do you have a way to raise the humidity? What is the humidity in that room compared to the rest of your house?

    Nice plants, by the way.

    Humidity is provided by the cool pacific breezes. San Francisco is blessed with a fog bank that is usually present. In those brief periods when the wind turns around and we dry out, I run a regular drug-store ultrasonic fogger. This isn't very often, though.

    Joe: Yep, T5s all the way!!

    I'm sure I've asked before, but what are your humidity ranges? I'm now living on the edge of a big, cool greenbelt and it's probably more moist here than in my windy old apartment.
    Thanks,
    ~Joe

    My grow room is pretty much always between 50% and 90% humidity. It usually overs between 65% and 80% on normal days.
