  2. It has been like that on my phone for a long time. Workaround: go to the three dots up to the right on your screen. That is settings for your browser. Switch to desktop mode and you can access your messages. When you are done you can switch back.
  3. I keep only dendrobates leucomelas at the moment. Living in sweden and running aircondition the hottest months so chilling havent been necessary. All my plants that needs somewhat colder temperature year round is in my unheated basement. The plants that need cold but frost free in winter is in a heated owerwintering tent in my greenhouse. I will work on a Youtube vid about my environment control unit and put up before spring. Check out for Green machine sweden.
  4. The achievments right now is a solid software and wiering diagram. If you are not diy type of person I am not sure it will make sense yet. It works good on increase/decreased humidity and increase temperature. Decrease temperature hasent been tested because of lack of chilling eqipment. However, I cannot imagine any problems. There are different threshold values for Day night value. For cost issues and ease of use day/night is determined by photo sensor instead of timer. Any change in photoperiod will automatically change period for night/Day values. Any other function more than decreased temp
  5. Temperature measuring is easy and straight forward. Not at all as humidity measuring.
  6. 10 euro for a complete unit??!! A reliable humidity sensor starts att 20 euro.
  7. Humidity controlling is quite advanced and expensive. I am running a tank on microclimate evo plus. It is an awsome unit with amazing accuracy. However, the product was discontinued due to expensive hardware, ie the humidity sensor. I would pay almost anything for more of this controller. Without this controller awailable, I have been forced to develop my own controller in arduino. Two years into the project now, it is working good, but needs a more expensive humidity sensor. And my engineer that are drawing the capsule is slow. Like he have more important things to do :). I can supp
  8. Sarracenias can be sown now for natural stratification and germination in spring. I have tried both natural and fridge stratification and they work equal for me. However there might be difference between species. Br Magnus
  9. 30 volt Will break the 12v fan. A driver should be rated higher ampere than the devise it is suppliing. In my Country we have a law that sais that you are not allowed to work with electrical work without "necessary knowledge". That means that if you burn down your house you didnt have "neccesary knowledge" and Will be without help from the insurance. Please check local laws and your insurance before connecting anything to the mains.
  10. Same reasons. Rotting off in succulents is normally a Sign of overwatering. But more common in winter. I never water most of my succulents. They are outside in summer and gets rain from time to time. In winter they are in overwintering room in the greenhouse. Min 5 degrees and bone dry. However, havent tried the species in the topic, just many different from the same area. Br Magnus
  11. If succulents rot in winter it is always due to overwatering. I would try cold but frost free and bone dry in the winter. Absolutely no water until it starts growing again in spring. That is how I am overwintering all my south african succulents successfully. Br Magnus
  12. Seed capsule is swelling now. First time I could take a good photo with my old phone. Do anyone know how long they take to ripen? And what to do with the seeds for best germination? Br Magnus
