Soil, you have me thinking. Do you think the Cool white rope lights would heat and be enough light to prevent leggy plants?soil wrote:i used lights like this.
cheap and effective.
I was thinking about build a insulated box under my watering shelf. The North and East walls are already insulated. The watering shelf would be the top of the box. The box would have rebar shelving with the rope lights cable tied to the underside of the shelves. I could also cable tie them to hardware cloth if needed. I'm thinking maybe a total of three shelves plus the bottom, so four layers of 1020 flats. I may even paint the interior white.
The box would be about 10ft long and 2ft deep. Glass front, hopefully recycled windows.
How would one know how many feet of lights per shelf for sufficient heat and light for plants below? Also my watering shelf will travel beyond the top of the box, to the west. Will this pull heat out of the chamber?
Should I draw a picture Apple?
