Default Transpiration Greenhouse Recovery Rates.



I am unable to find any documentation as to the percent water recovery
rate one can expect in a greenhouse environment, of transpired water.

If I have a plant that transpires 25 gallons of warer per day, what
percent of that 25 gallons can I expect to recover on a daily basis in
a greenhouse type condensing system? Is this the best way to recover
the water?

What should I use to condense the water? What is the operating cost of
the condensing system?

I know from survival training one can get a fair amount of water via
plastic bags on certain plants. Is this transferable to a more large
scale source of water?

Thanks for any help.

Dan

In theory a 100% of the water is recoverable, but the law of diminishing
returns applies.

However, this definitely is not a botany question.

Where should I post the question?

I posted it here since from my reading I know there must be some sort
of air exchange for the plants to survive so I thought a botanist may
have done some expereiment as to what the air exchange might have on
recovery rates for the humidity.

Can't really help you there. This is a technical question far away from
botany. You might try rec.gardens.ecosystems but I can't tell you from
personal experience if that would work
