Will this fan short out because of moisture and exposed wire?  Can I put RTV sealant on it to prevent that?

Ya you can just put your trays on the GH shelves, and open up the front and fan 2-3 times a day. You can set the humidifier on a timer to come on for a couple mins every 4 hours or so. You can tweek it so your rh stays high but there's not excess water to pool up on the bottom too much. That will work until you decide to get a hygrotherm and exhaust fan to make it automated.

You can even put the exhaust fan on a separate timer to come on for a couple mins right before the humidifier kicks on :) That way you won't have to open it to fan.

If most contaminants and dirt is near the floor, would an exhaust fan be better towards the bottom of the greenhouse and holes for FAE towards the top?  Suck air in from above and exhaust out the bottom?

Also wondering about this....even though its best to work in the most sterile environment as possible, sometimes its not possible for us closet growers....best of luck though....:wub::P One love

Fully automated is my final destination....I feel like it would take a while to get there though...(space, finances, environment....) :wub::P One love

So, I would like to try to get this dialed in a little better and more automatic before putting it back to use.  I am hoping people that have these will weigh in and let me know what works for them.  Thank you @magicman for all the information you have added to this thread.

What do people think of exhaust at the bottom vs. the top?  I think for now I might just set timers to do cycles of on and off for humidifier and exhaust and Tyvek patches cut into the GH on each level.

@OpenBar I noticed you posted a picture of your GH, do you leave the thing unzipped all the time, could you give me some details about what you have going on?

Thanks in advance.

      Pretty crappy quality pic, but, everything was white.  Started GT spores on agar here 6 days ago.  Took pic in still air box, may be contaminated now but who knows, I'll find out soon enough.   Cut into 6 pieces.  1 went into a jar of LC, 5 went into WBS jars. Going to be doing another round of WBS and 1 LC in the next week or two, whenever my PES hawaiin spores get here from different vendor.

      I'm back. Nd yeah absent thoughts i got a super nice pinset going now no casing layer! on 3rd flush, also made a super clean LC. Strain is PF CLASSIC. I did make a print from the GT i doubt the sterility of it though so im not wasting any time with that yet.. Things are moving along

      Parts per million and electrical current of the water.  Measured before you feed and after(after is measured through runoff).  You can buy a meter to test water with nutrient solution.  Although there is a K.I.S.S. method that wirks fine amd you dont need meters and a lot of water testing.  Just get Maxibloom and weigh out 7 grams per gallon of water, or use flora Nova bloom as directed.  With a ppm/EC meter you can fine tune exactly how much nutes your plants are getting for perfect dosage of the nutrients if you will.
