Re: Recommendation wanted for an Inkbird or Biogreen thermostat

The difference between 308 and 308S seems to be only that the 308S has a detachable sensor, whilst the 308 has sensor cable "built in" to the case. The 308S has the option of a 1.97" sensor probe (as on the 308) or a 12" long sensor probe for an extra £5 or so.

Re: Recommendation wanted for an Inkbird or Biogreen thermostat

The main difference looks to be that the first has a socket for a heater and a cooler, and the second has two sockets for only a heater. But will that be the only difference? If so, I am more tempting to order the ITC-306T with two heater sockets. I do have two cold frames to heat, so when my curre...

Re: Recommendation wanted for an Inkbird or Biogreen thermostat

I will be using them to heat (keep frost free) a cold frame (which resides inside my unheated greenhouse), to allow for frost protection for my winter active succulents. It only needs to register a temperature of <0C, after which it should kick in the simple heater that I have. At around 5C I want ...

Re: Recommendation wanted for an Inkbird or Biogreen thermostat

There maybe something in the settings to stop this however I am not that technical. I set it to 8 degree C and the greenhouses have never been below 5 degrees C which is what I aim for agavemad - the reason this happens is that the Biogreen has a fixed temperature differential between switch on and...

Re: Seeds from Star Astrophytum

Hi, has anyone bought any seeds from this company? They have an amazing variety. I'm very tempted but the 100 euro minimum purchase is holding me back at present! I seemed to remember the company from one recent thread, and checked. Just search "star astrophytum" on this forum - there are at least ...

Re: Indoor thermometer?

I hope it's durable as well. Ours has been working fine for over seven years now. I say "ours" because it was originally bought for checking humidity in the room where my wife's piano is, and still performs that function well, especially useful in our (too) dry hot summer this year. I admit I have ...

Re: Indoor thermometer?

The best I have used so far is one of these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B003ARRMJ2/ref=asc_df_B003ARRMJ256588238/? I have one of these too, and it's simple to use and as far as I can tell accurate. My branding is "Simplicity" but it's the same model. I wouldn't look for anything other than digital...

Re: blight on lophophora

I would try cutting out the diseased areas and seeing if you can get to clean (green) tissue. If so, dust the cut with funicide and leave to dry. This will work unless the rot has started deep within the body. Lophophoras are very capable of growing out of disfigurement and in a year or two could lo...

Re: Succulent ID

I don't mean to be argumentative, Tony, but the question remains - do our friends here have the same problem when posting to other fora, or other social media such as FaceBook? If yes then I can accept what you sayt 100%. If not then this comes back to being an issue shared by both forum users and t...
