GreenHab Report – February 28th

Green Hab Report  – Sol 16
Report written by: Victoria DA-POIAN (Crew Biologist)

Date : 02/28/2017

Functionality: The heater in the green hab is working well. Today was a very sunny day. I checked the temperature in the GreenHab this morning. It was around 30 Celsius degrees around 09:15 AM while the temperature in the tunnel was around 7.6 Celsius degrees. I switched on the cooler (on stage 2).

The GreenHab temperature was 21 Celsius degrees at 5:30PM while it was 3.5 Celsius degrees in the tunnel. I watered the seedlings this morning and I did this afternoon.

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. I harvested one  lettuce and I planted one new.

The Vegidair has been installed 10 days ago and is functionning very well (cf photos). It seems that a sprout in the greenhab has withered and died in the greenhab however all the ones in the vegidair grow very fast.
Unfortunately, there will not be a new crew to take over after us so I am worried about this.
