So cool to see it actually working.
Ha ha ha....you probably are right and thank you Greenlizzard. I used lettuce seeds as those were the only ones I still had. I went to the stores to get some others but the seed companies had already taken back the seed displays with seeds, for them the season was over I guess.You will be eating a big bowl of salad before you know it! Seriously though, it's awesome to see it working. Congrats on the growth.
That depends I guess. The plan is to top once and train them along the grates that I have installed. In this way I hope that they grow along the inner circumference. What will happen once they stretch is unknown, your guess is as good as mine.How tall can you let them grow in that drum?
Hopefully something like this would happen, just not with only two plantsMy guess is they will go for the light in the centre. How tall would you like them to grow?
One issue I see with the drum is that the space for the plants are narrowing as they grow taller.
First, let me say your mad scientist mechanical skills are impressive. for sharing.The plants are growing but I think there is too much heat, maybe I have time later today to change the fan because it is too strong, so I am not using it at the moment.
Thanks for the kind words Blew. I have a thermometer in the drum every other day or so and as I am running now, the temp. is around 68F. I could bring that up a bit by lowering the RPM’s of the fan if I want.I keep seeing you say "high temps" but nothing definitive...is there a 24/7 temp log for the drum? Also, lettuce and cannabis have a temp sweet spot differential of at least 20F, so maybe you won't need to adjust it too dramatically.
