I was able to put together the peltier cooler but i didn't know that it will decrease the humidity. Dry air damaged my plants and almost died. They are stable now but look pretty banged up! I'm optimistic that they'll recover as i already placed them in humidity dome while their stem is still green!
Temperature is 19-21'C at night and 24-26'C during daytime.

where is the peltier control temp device, or you did not get it yet?
all you have to do, is remove the the cooling fan from the inside , the fan dried the air!

The temperature controller was for extreme coldness. I thought it can go down to 10'C, i was worried it might freeze the plant. But it's always at 20-27'C daily so i no have need to control the temp. Didn't make sense anymore.

As for the fan, i tried to shut it off but the cooler isn't as efficient. Temperature is only a few degrees cooler than the outside. I just constructed a humidity dome inside the styro and so far it stabilized the plants.

I'm amazed Salvia didn't die on meafter being roughed up!
I placed a 12 cell techni ice inside and the temp dropped to 19-21'C. The good thing is that i only need to change the icepacks once a day(12noon). Temperature never exceeded 21'C :D Now i can leave these guys at peace until they outgrow the container.

PM SF with your idea. I don't have access to the smileys. I don't really use them, either... Maybe you can find some for us. SF won't have time to look for them. :(

if you want a high quality plant you should use freshsalvia.com, I bought a plant from them and it is growing very nicely, about 10 days old and it has already grown atleast half an inch higher than when I first got it. I will post some pictures eventually.
