Cold Frame Removal on Indoor 1989.5 dmg Daletas 17

Today, the indoor plant has officially outgrown its small cold frame. I kept it in this to have a smaller area to regulate and also buffer some time to work on the bigger structure it will spend the rest of its life in. While the larger structure may not be fully complete it is generally functional and still has some manual requirements that are planned to be automated going forward.

The small black tubing is the carbon dioxide delivery system to provide an easy way to offer even distribution across the entire area. The main vine is right at the door (that has been removed on the right hand side) so it is about 8-9ft. long at this point. Typically, at this main vine length (9ft.) the side vines start to hit the sides (5ft. wide structure so about 2.5ft long side vines) as can be seen on the left side of the structure.
