Around 37 °C at 10am, around 30 °C the rest of the day

Hours of supplemental light: from 7pm to 9pm

Changes to crops: Cute down all the overgrown tomato leaves to free some space and allow the plants to grow further

Daily water usage for crops: around 11 gallons

Time(s) of watering for crops: 9:00 am and 7:20pm

Narrative: Today we put the 80% shade on all the GreenHab. We were four and it took us 2 hours, under the burning sun, it was a hassle. But Now it’s done, and it looks good. I worked quite a lot during the afternoon to take care of the plants. The GreenHab looks better day after day, makes me feel good.

Support/supplies needed: wooden sticks to support falling plants

Cheers,

GreenHab Report – February 25th

Hi Capcom,

Here the GreenHab Report of my colleague AUCLAIR Jérémy

26 feb 2018

Environmental control:

(door open around 11am, left closed after 16h)

Heating once the sun was down

80 % Shade cloth on

Average temperatures:

Around 35 °C at 11am, around 28 °C the rest of the day

Hours of supplemental light: from 7pm to 9pm

Changes to crops: Two carrot pots were planted in a bigger pot to allow them to grow further, I tried to save the cucumber plants by putting wooden sticks to attach them and clean the mess the plants were in (all tangled up)

Daily water usage for crops: around 15 gallons

Time(s) of watering for crops: 11am and 7pm

Narrative: Once again I had to fix the mess the plants were in, the carrot plants were too close to one another, all bunched up in small pots, I moved them to bigger pots and tried to save most of the crops. There is a lot of work to be done in the GreenHab and it will take some time, a lot of plants need to be taken care of quickly (for a good amount of the plants the crops are too many in one too small pot). I ran out of wooden sticks again; half of the tomato plants and all the cucumber plants were falling apart because they weren’t guided with wooden sticks.

Support/supplies needed: wooden sticks to support falling plants

21 February 2018

Environmental control:

Ambient with door closed

Fan during 30 minutes

Shade cloth on

Average temperatures: I put the new thermometers in the greenhab today and the temperature was about 16 degrees Celsius at 5pm, went up to 30 °C at 8pm after we worked in the GreenHab

Hours of supplemental light: from 6pm to 11pm

Changes to crops: one cucumber that was not ripes fell down while changing the shade

Daily water usage for crops: 13 gallons

Time(s) of watering for crops: 10:30apm and 7:30pm

Aquaponics: None

Narrative: Today, the greenhab had many visitors. We installed the new shades (80% shading) and it was a hassle, it took us a lot of time and was very complicated! Almost all the crew participated in this installation. The commanders and the astronomer helped a lot and without them I would not have been able to do it! Thanks to this installation I noticed that many tomatoes plants were bending and with Benoit we used many wooden sticks. We changed the organisation of the GreenHab quite a lot. I still have many work to do to rearrange all this but, at least, the new cover is partially installed!

Support/supplies needed: Wooden sticks (again please)
