Have you already purchased it?

If not I suggest you check out the Martha Stewart stationary storage closet. It's pretty much sealed all the way around (with a few small holes but nothing major). You can get it at www.bluelight.com. It's a lot cheaper than the walmart greenhouses, i think.

Yes...alot of us use the Green house that you are talking about.

You only need to put some plasic under it...to keep it from ruining your carpet or hard wood floors.
I have mine on concrete...so no worries.

i was wondering also what would be a way to controll the humidity and heat?

is there any things around that can monitor the humidity and heat then turn off the humidifier and heater as needed?

i know there is one someone posted here for heat but not for humidity

You would set your humidifer up on a timer...and figgure out when to have it turn on and off.

You would have the room at around 74 degrees F....My grow room is always 74 degrees F.
You might need to get a space heater...or an AC unit depending on what time of year it is.

How does a person heat something like this? It seems to me that running a space heater in 95-100% humidity would be a bit of a fire hazard. Heating an entire bedroom to 87 deg F seems a bit much.

You only need it to be 74?f for fruiting and my house is kept at about that heat anyway.so i dont need too much extra heat added.Best to incubate in somthing else thats easyer to keep at 80?f to 84?f

We've been working on building something similar out of painter's tarp, and PVC over in "ethnobotanical garden".

It's in my thread about making a growing kit for salvia.

Anno had a setup similar to that, which was antonius - I think he didn't have very good results with the ambient humidity being thrown off by casings, and a few pans of hydroponic medium (like perlite, but geolite).

He ended up hooking up a cool mist humidifier to it.

Give it a whir, you'll know quickly if you need more humidity.

One thing about these green greenhouses [whatever], is that angled top; I have had several makeshift boxy shelving units that were of almost identical size. . .none worked nearly as well as this thing.
There could be other factors involved, but I'm leaning towards the shape of the top as a big one.

I'm confused. Do you like the on from Walmart or Kmart better? How does the shape of the top affect it?

get the walmart one

the top is a truss shape (angled) so that droplets don't form. Thats a good thing when you're keeping humidity that high, you don't want it to drop onto the mushrooms.

The top of the Walmart version is tapered, while the top of the K-mart version is flat. Suntzu believes the tapered top of the Walmart version is beneficial. I agree.
