Building aeroponics system in home and product organic vegetables and fruits .
Aeroponics ; is the process of growing plants in an air or mist environment without the use of soil or an aggregate medium . The most important part of aeroponics is light and i use led grow lights in project .
50w full spectrum led grow light .
Led chips not produce the spectrum that the plant will not use .
My first plan is buy aluminum heatsink and integrate led chips . Led chips working on 220v and warms up quickly need good cooling .
Example aluminum heatsink .
After the lights are done i will buy light proof grow tent .
Example grow tent . Interior light proof mylar covered .
Later buy nutrient solution reservoir , pump , pots , pipes and aeroponic sprayers
Finally , i will add co2 system to the project .
Why is CO2 important for plants?
CO2 ( Carbon dioxide ) accelerates plant growth . There are around approximate 400 ppm (parts per million) carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The ideal ppm rate for fastest plant growth is 1.300-1.500 .
Ideal CO2 levels on plant .
What does the CO2 controller do?
CO2 controller keeps the PPM level at the desired level using the connected CO2 bottle .
