    Default Updated growing areas

    It´s a New Year and time to document this year winter growing areas. We are in the dark and cold season and it is essential with extra light up here in the north! The outside temperatur was today only -1 degree Centigrade (30F) but now and then it drops to -10 to -15! (14F to 5F).

    First pictures is on my orchid window, south east direction but the sun never reach over the roof of the house over the yard!

    And last, this years new addition!

    This is a "smaller" cabinet with a dripwall build of Hygrolon glued to Epiweb slabs. You can see the patch work of all the slabs and they are cut in size to fit nicely. When the front is off during the day the RH goes down to 70-75 % and during night I close the front and let the humidity go up to 95+%. I have several computer fans for air circulation.

    For light I have a 60x10 cm Ultra High Output LED Panel giving (110lm/W) with a good spectra, 6500K color temperature and a total of 3960 lumen.
    The cabinet have been running like this for about 4 month WITHOUT any other light!
