Living in Southern California I've been determined to figure out the best way to store my sheng at the proper humidity. We live in a small house so I couldn't allocate a room or even a closet. I finally came up with this solution - first of all I started with one of these "grow boxes" designed for hydroponic "gardening" (sorry for the crappy photo):
For humidification I got a Hydra humidifier which is designed for cigar humidors. I also got the additional 3 fan upgrade.
I didn't want to continually be opening up the contraption to check the humidity so I got this wireless Temperature/Humidity monitor:
And hung the remote sensor from the top framework of the grow box:
I had to figure out some kind of a shelving solution. I came up with this hanging canvas sweater organizer. I cut openings in the sides to facilitate air flow. It hangs perfectly from the crossbar at the top of the grow box.
There is space on each shelf for 16 beengs:
but I don't think the cardboard sitffeners are going to support that much weight for long. I'm still searching some kind of a shelving solution that will fit in the 16" x 16" footprint.
I'm not sure the external fans were a good idea. The wiring harness is too short to position them very far from the base unit.
Here is the whole set up before I started loading it up with my stash:
And here it is all zipped up and in its permanent home on the top shelf of a wire shelving unit in our office:
As I sit here in the office I can here the fans buzzing away, and look over at my humidity monitor to see the room is at 58%, but it is 76% in the pumidor
I am concerned about fresh air flow, mold, and ???
I look forward to your suggestions and comments.
