Followed by the moisture readings I watered the plants a little less than yesterday both morning (5 gallons) and evening (3 gallons). In the afternoon the moisture level increased by 10- 17% and remained almost similar till evening. The weather was windy and cold so the heater went on and off several times all the times (morning, afternoon, evening) I was present in the GreenHab. In the afternoon a few radishes were harvested and in the evening some Coriander and Basil was harvested for dinner and soaked some radish seeds in water to plant them tomorrow for my research.
Harvest: Raddish : 117 g, Coriander and Basil : 23 g
Support/supplies needed: Mist Spray
