I found this behind a gas station in a broke down car wash. I asked about it and they just gave it to me. Check it out:

I want to turn her into a fully automated grow chamber. I have been looking into the black boxes that are controlled through your parallel port, but at first I will probably just use timers.

Since this picture was taken I have installed 4 individual outlets inside that are wired to separate plugs on the back. My goal is to keep this as freezer looking as possible and put it next to my fridge in the apartment.

My main concern is FAE. I have no experience with anything other than fanning. I have read (and read and read) the cool mist vs. ultrasonic humidifier debate and it seems that it really depends on the setup. So here is my setup. Whats the consensus? (if there is such a thing in the forums). Also, any suggestions on where/how to put the hole for FAE?

Give agar a shout about fridges/freezers if he doesnt see this and respond.

LOL..........answered your PM... before I saw this post.

FAE......altered CoolMist with timer.

Tape layer of pourios pre/filter material over intake (or not - up to you). Alter exhaust into tubing. Drill hole in box top, run tubing in. Hook tubing to small bore PVC pipe inside. Drill downward looking holes in PVC pipe. Creates semi-positive pressure air exchange & raises rh. Air & condensation will exhaust out drain in box bottom. Replace drain hose & pan with a larger one. You will need it.

To raise rh to max. Use fountain fogger in gallon jar, or dishpan on top shelf. If you don't have that. Use utrasonic hummer on top shelf, on timer.

I've got an Ultrasonic fogger in my freezer, a exo-terra "fogger" that looks like:

I placed it in a bucket, drilling small holes over the water surface and I let it run 15min a day. I get 99% humidity even thou I open it several times a day. I might put a timer on the timer so that maybe I turn it on every second day.

Took some pics

Cant drill any holes in the freezer cause I rent it :crazy:
