I have been doing some research on how to build a grow chamber for ultra-highland Neps. The 30 bottle wine coolers are basically a small refrigerator with a programable thermostat and a glass front with a dim light fixture. I figured that it could be put on a timer to shut it off to allow it to get into the 80's with a retro-fitted light fixture and the timed to turn on to gradually lower the temperature to 58 - 55. It is sealed, so it should not be hard to get it quite humid.
Has anyone tried on of these or do you see any kind drawbacks with this kind of setup?
A new unit wine cooler costs about $280 at Bestbuy. This is more than I'd like to pay, but the end result would look quite good in my opinion.
