Functionality: The heater in the green hab is working well. Today was a rainy, cloudy and cold day ! I checked the temperature in the GreenHab this morning. It was around 21 Celsius degrees around 11:00 AM while the temperature in the tunnel was around 6.8 Celsius degrees. I did not switch on the cooler. The GreenHab temperature was 18 Celsius degrees at 5:00PM while it was 6.6 Celsius degrees in the tunnel. I watered the seedlings this morning and this afternoon too.

Status: The existing seedlings in the greenhab are continuing to grow well. There are spinach, lettuce, radish, and beans growing very well in the small pots.

The Vegidair has been installed 3 days ago and is functionning very well. We were able to see more sprouts of lettuce and of « roquette » today in the Vegidair but not in the similar pots I put in the GreenHab.
