Aloha!

My friend and me decide to build a mini growroom for that wonderful thig.
We like to make a very cheap and very impressive growroom with automatic lighting, aerator and air-pump. We like to make this like a plastic house.
We will to document everything. We're welcome to adopt any motion! :) :weedpoke: :bow: :horse:

it's a 3m x 120cm "room"

Hi!
I packed out the room, and I took some pictures from it. I forget to take any picture from the room's original position. Sorry about that, but I took a photo from the trash what I took out to the dump. :laser:The cleaning in progress right now. :kewl:

I forgot upload some pictures. I repaired the electric connector, when it filled with electricity. Don't do it if you're not a pro, or hire a stuntman! The second picture took right before when we're started the cleaning process.

I will be monitoring this thread very closely psyl. I also have a room/rooms to be converted into mushie chambers. There are 2 seperate concrete chambers meausiring at 12' long, 5' wide, 5' high that are underground. Actually, the openings to them are hidden in the floor of a shed at the property.

We're covered it with nylon, and at the joints we're used cello tape. To the nylon we used silicon glue and pins. Before the nylon, we're washed down the walls with hypo (natrium-hypoclorit, NaOCl) to disinfect it, and at the end too. Now we're experimenting with the heat source. The first experiment is a lamp under a sphere fishbowl, and the lamp is attached to a thermostat. We hope it'll works. If not, we must find out another mode, but it must be cheap. :eusa_danc

Looking good man! Csak igy tovabb :) Make sure that there are absolutly no holes, or loose connections, if moisture can get inbetween the palstic and the wall you may get some serious contam issues.

Hi!
I'm psyl's friend.
The lamp project seems not working. But I still test it. If anyone have an idea how we can heat the room, we're receive it fondly. We thanks any usable idea.

Your best bet would be a small electric heating element, however considering the humidity level it may cause some issues. A gas warmer would creat co2. Let me correctmyselfe, perhaps the best bet would be some heating lamps, not regular bulbs but heat lamps used for reptiles and to keep food warm in bufets. Just some thoughts.

You mean infra lamp? Maybe the consumption is too much, but I'll do a research about it.

Do you want that WHOLE room to be a grow chamber? If you can find an old fridge, clean it out, and use that as the incubation chamber. Pull out the vegi drawers, and what not, cover it up so no light gets through and put a 60w Light (still in the vegi drawers), and connect a Thermostat in it.

I'm sure you get the idea.

This wont be as cheap as the lightbulb but, radiator style space heaters (oil or water filled) work well for heating a room efficiently and they dont dry the air directly like the ceramic or parabolic space heaters.

I use one almost identical to this one, but it's a bit cheaper than this one. Also available at Lowes. It handles high rh's fine and is actually rather consistent when comming to maintaining temperature.

We tried this infra bulb, and it seems working, but we're figured out a more cheaper way to make good temperature to the stuff. We'll buy some aquarium heater (25W) with thermostat, put one to a water filled box, and to the top of this, we take the box with the stuff. The building continoues tomorrow... Lighting, air pump, etc.
