Grow Light Controller

We’re going to be out of town for the weekend and a problem arose when we started thinking about how to turn on the lights for the hydroponic setup. Using a relay controlled power outlet that I whipped together for another project + a C.H.I.P., I was able to easily port over the code I was using for my Wake Up Light (check it out) for use in this system.

Kratky Method Hydroponics

Cheryl and I decided to start growing some lettuce, basil and spinach hydroponically just to see what would happen. Of course we hope that we’ll be able to enjoy a fresh salad straight from our system, but we’ll see if that happens.
