Green Hab Report  – Sol 13
Report written by: Victoria DA-POIAN (Crew Biologist)

Date : 02/25/2017

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 41 Celsius degrees around 11:00 AM while the temperature in the tunnel was around 3.8 Celsius degrees. I switched on the cooler (on stage 3).

The GreenHab temperature was 18 Celsius degrees at 5:00PM while it was 6 Celsius degrees in the tunnel. I then cut the cooler and watered the seedlings.

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. A new lettuce has been planted today. Another lettuce is not looking well, we will probably harvest it soon and plant a new one.

The Vegidair has been is functionning very well. 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, but those in the GreenHab have also taken well.
