Interesting article about greenhouse growing and light manipulation.
I’ll have to work on off-grid solutions to keep my nutrient tanks cool and additional ventilation in the hotter periods of the year.
In a greenhouse, you have the ability to cultivate plants efficiently with indoor quality
I’ve used this low tech (off-grid) way of cooling a water bottle by wrapping in wet cloth and then tieing a string to the neck and swing it around and around my head to generate airflow. It does work.
The Coolgardie safe is a low-tech food storage unit for cooling and prolonging the life of whatever edibles were kept in it. It applies the basic principle of heat transfer which occurs during evaporation of water.

Coolgardie was the site of a gold rush in the early 1890s, before the Kalgoorlie-Boulder gold rush. For the prospectors who had rushed here to fin…
It wouldn’t take much effort to adopt such a system to my grow tent. and nutrient tank.
I need to build some kind of lightproof Venetian blind ventilation system and combine it with a fan to get the air moving inside the tent and activate the Coolgardie system.
