We are afraid the plants in the GreenHab may die. The temperatures
are just not favorable for plant growth. The GreenHab is too hot
during sunny days and too cold while the sun is obscured. The
GreenHab is not sealed well enough to stabilize the inside
temperature. Almost all of the plastic located inside of the GreenHab
has noticeable heat deformation making several of the items unusable.
Also, the seeds that were stored out there are not viable. The seeds
that we brought with us have germinated but no growth is being seen
from those supplied through MDRS, likely due to the heat they were
stored in. The heater is severely undersized to keep up with the
thermally inefficient GreenHab structure. Radish, lettuces and
mystery crop are germinating very well in the crew quarters.
