I’ve been reading up on @Mr.Sparkle micro grows, and they are very inspiring! So, decided to try my first auto grow in the same style.
Currently waiting for my 2x2 tent to open up (being used as a seed drying chamber for next week or so), but here is the grow plan in the coming weeks:
24" x 24" x 56"
Coco Coir + perlite
Ikea Kuggis 21" x 14" x 8" storage bin
The flower-pots are a bit larger than I expected. I think they will work fine, but I don’t want the plants growing too large or they will crowd each other out.
The plan is to use the flower-pot drip trays flipped upside down, so they can hold aquarium filter material. I’m hoping this will catch a lot of the dirt and debris from draining back into the reservoir.
Also, irrigation pump will be controlled by a raspberry pi and some custom software I wrote.
More to follow in the next week or so…
