    this is great, however, for light you probably dont want to use anything like HPS, MH or cheap florescent lights, these lights wont allow a good brix value for plants you eat. The best newer technology you can buy are probably MI lights, just google "biosonictech" and look at the PAR spectrum.

    thanks for sharing!

    @mothertory also, do you have to cover the bowls?

  • mothertory 11 months ago

    do they just sit in the bowl with no water during the day or do you refill the bowl for a daytime soak as well?
