    Definitely a fan of the basement setups. They are very versatile when it comes to growing different CP's

    Amazing set up! does the humidity have any negative affects on the basement such as damp/mould or is it fully contained in the plastic?

    Hi
    well i had some trouble with the plants in beginning. i just had the table inside the room and the plants didnt grew for 1 year. after this time i thought about that the problem might be the bad air inside the basement because it is very humid there and there is maybe mold too.. then i wraped the table in the plastic and since this the plants start to recover and grow again.
    right now i just have a fan blowing inside the chamber who blow the old air out. under the table i have a heating element that keep the room at 20C and dry the air. so i´m sure that not much humidity come out of the chamber...
