A moist culture box

Post by Christer Johansson » Fri Apr 13, 2018 10:08 am

Hello all :)

I have a automated moist culture box with "Jungle Cacti" (xEpicactus or Ephipyllum hybris or etc.) and some orchids. It runs with help from one Arduino and some sensors. The only light it gets comes from LED-lights.

Any thoughts about this?

Christmas cactus is Short-day plants.
Flower is control by the length of daylight.
I think you can control their flowering by led.

That would be neat :)
I'm sad if I lose a plant, so I can not even imagine what I feel if I lose a frog :???:

If I lost a frog I'd be hopping mad.
