Hi Matti,

The temperature sounds right but relative humidity should be kept low and provide some circulation to prevent "dead air". This to prevent creating ideal conditions for grey mold (Botrytis cinerea). In my cellar air is constantly expelled by a 50 Watt fan, creating some underpressure as a result moisture dries up rapidly. My calceolus is just getting into flower and I also grow all the seedlings I raise in my cellar. The first-year-out-of-flask seedlings stay their first year entirely in the cellar under cool white luminescent tubes. The second year they go outside during summer.

Best regards,
