Lowering air temperature, need ideas
    #1456798 - 04/14/03 12:34 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

A friend of mine lives in a very hot part of hte world, and he tells me that during the day the temperuture in the room he keeps his terraniums in gets up to 85-90F and is only going to get warmer as the hottest part of the year is months away.

He also says his house has central air conditioning but theres no vent in the room he is using, and he has to keep the room closed off as to be 'stealthy' with the growing.

Any ideas on how to help my friend lower the air temperature in the small room? (I think its a closet but im not 100% sure)  :smirk:

A cheap wall mount AC unit is the only thing I could find. Paid $100 plus shipping on ebay, came out to about $120. Nice and quiet with a digi auto thermostat. Keeps my closet and bedroom cool.

My friend had the same problem when he first started growing.

He saved the empty cans from one of his 6 packs, filled the cans with water and put them in the freezer. To cool his terrarium he would put a frozen can or two in with the cakes. As the cans thawed he would replace them with more frozen cans.

My friend had a small terrarium so this worked pretty well. Maybe it will work for your "terraniums".  :smirk:
