Functionality: The heater in the green hab is working well. Today was a very sunny day and warmer than yesterday. I checked the temperature in the GreenHab this morning. It was around 35 Celsius degrees around 09:15 AM while the temperature in the tunnel was around 17.6 Celsius degrees. I switched on the cooler (on stage 3).

The GreenHab temperature was 30 Celsius degrees at 4:30PM while it was 17 Celsius degrees in the tunnel. I watered the seedlings this morning and I did this afternoon.

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. I harvested 2 radishes and I planted 2 new.

The Vegidair has been installed 5 days ago and is functionning very well (cf photos). We were able to see taller sprouts of lettuce and of « roquette » today in the Vegidair than in the similar pots I put in the GreenHab.
