Better than martha
    #3372163 - 11/17/04 01:40 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Here is pictures of the greenhouse AFOAF has built. The total cost was under $100. You can pickup the structure right here ready to go, http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/wcs/s...20&R=404720 I am extremly satisfied with the retailer as well as the product. Its the same price as martha but comes with all the shelvings and such. Check out the pictures.



A peek inside the closet

The ultra sonic


The Timers


The hose intake into the greenhouse



Caliber 2 hygrometer providing accurate measurements.

The coolmist


Let me know what you guys think, I hope I can help out many new persons.

When you buy the unit it does not have a bottom. I had a giant roll of 4 mil thick plastic sheeting for use with straw, I made my own bottom and attached it in under 10 minutes. The bottom is totally sealed all the way around except from zipper to zipper which is the door. This provides enough air to escape.

Note: Sorry for the shitty pic of the whole unit. The lighting that is on a timer is 3 seperate flourecent lights from meijer. They came in a 3 pack for $21. They are 8w each (very efficient) and can be piggy backed for power (like christmas lights)

Yah the Northern Tools greenhouses are sweet and pretty easy to set up. I just put mine together tonight, though I can only use it for edibles, would be a sweet environment for psilly friends. Those are phoenix oyster in the picture and I should have some shiitake coming soon. Anyway, I think those greenhouses are good because you don't need to make your own shelving system like you would with a martha, but like you pointed out there's no bottom on it.



Could I ask a question? Ultrasonic is on 5 minutes every 2 hours, tomorrow I'll hook up a coolmist and grab a hygrometer to see if I hsould tweek the schedule. What kind of cycles are you using for humidity?

Is it 30$ plus shipping?

Edit: Guess I could've figured that out for myself.

16$ shipping to me. So 46$ total... Hmm... Not sure if it's worth it.

A Martha is only 25$. I'd have to figure out how much shelving would be, and weigh whether having to rig it myself or not is worth any savings. It very well may not be.. I hate ghetto setups.

It seems like a descent deal. I decided to make a Martha around the shelves instead of making shelves in a Martha. I paid $30-35 for my shelving and another $10 for the plastic sheeting.

Go to big lots. You can buy the whole greenhouse with shelves for 19 bucks.
I like that they are clear but the plastic on them tore to easy for me. Half the time I wake up with one of the cats sleeping on top of it he jumps on top and crashes out. When I did the green house he went right threw and I had to fish my humidified cat out of it. I also don't like the zipper opening from the bottom (just a me thing).
The slanted roof on it is a great benifit though preventing dripping on the casings.

Now the pic I saw just a little suggestion. Mount the outlet for the ultrasonic right over the outlet for the cool mist. The reason is the fog from the ultrasonic will drop into the cool mist airstream and mix thruoghout the chamber better. (way way way better) Also if the cool mist is below the outlet going into the unit it won't puddle inside the chamber as much. (if your even seeing anything like that.  :wink:

Now for anybody who is nuts about contams. Put your humidifiers in filter boxes that way the air is cleaned before it even reaches the humidifier and removing contams isn't left up to some shitty filter that comes with it.  :thumbup:

cool mist is 24/7, ultrasonic is 15 every 2 hours. My timer is only by 15 minute blocks.
Magash: the reason the hosing is so weird looking going in is because there is like 3 inches between the wall of closet and the greenhouse. The coolmist is above the green house and the ultra sonic is below the coolmist, so they have to go around each other to do it like you said. But that is how it's setup. Thanks for your idea.
