The growing environment is working out well, which we are quite happy about, the cost of running the system doesn’t seem to be much at all when compared to running the rest of the house. The lighting appears to be sufficient for the plants to germinate and to continue to grow in – so at this stage we’re very impressed with the trial.
Next on our list of things to do is:
- Wire up some more lights (we’re running out of well-lit areas for our second trial while our first trail continues to grow up to 20 days – a small oversight in our planning)
- Consider how best we can maximise/minimise the different variables: trays, water, heat, coco-peat, lighting, time, etc
