GreenHab Report – April 18th

Crew 297 GreenHab Report 18-04-2024

GreenHab Officer: Sean Marquez

Environmental control:
– Heater on (set to 55F)
– Fan on

Average temperatures: 80F

Hours of supplemental light: N/A

Daily water usage for crops: 3 gal

Daily water usage for research and/or other purposes: 0 gal

Water in Blue Tank: 188 gal

Time(s) of watering for crops: 11:30

Changes to crops: Radishes and red cabbages were still looking a bit wilted, but less so than yesterday. Carrots and the two (Riya & Garbanzo) kale plants no longer appear wilted.

Narrative: Fan was on full power at the time of watering, but due to power outages throughout the day, the GreenHab door was purposefully left open again between 16:10 to 19:00 to allow for air flow from the tunnel system to try and prevent the GreenHab from overheating. Brown leaves from cherry tomatoes, kale, and squash were composted. Vines from a squash plant were found strangling a neighboring cherry tomato plant, which then had to be separated and placed along an adjacent trellis.

– 4g cherry tomato

Support/supplies needed: N/A
