K, I've created this monsterous grow room for my babies... Need comments/ideas....

There is normal light cycles during the day/night, the humidifier keeps RH @ 65-85%, temps stay around 71-76*F, and theres a HEPA filter on low all the time to circulate and filter the air.

The "shower" curtians on left and right allow access from both sides of the shelving unit. I plan on adding another shelving unit later attached to this one with access on both sides as well.

The totes I mist 2-3 times daily and the log bits are from the dried out logs that I dunked several days ago. The totes are dried logs that I crumbled and cased and have been drowning them in water... =)

Comments/suggestions?

lol, the sides and top are just thin painters plastic taped to the pvc poles. The shower curtians have about 2-3in between them and the floor and it's not "air-tight" so as to allow plenty of air flow for the HEPA filter to suck up and recycle.

The logs are not pink... it's just a crappy camera.

The carpet of the entire room is covered in that plastic saran wrap carpet protector crap. You can buy it at lowes and have probably seen in in model homes or something. The room and closet are covered in it. The closet is setup with shelves for incubating the jars.

It's really a good setup but I just wanted to know if the environment variables are good to go or if they need to be tweaked at all... i.e. is this an optimum setup...

humidity could come up about another 10 points,
temps perhaps a couple but otherwise sounds close enough.

Very nice setup. I'm thinking I may have to turn a spare bedroom into something similar this weekend.
