A lot has changed

Prologue

While working on figuring out the Automated controller part of this project, I started working with a tech friend of mine. Things have snowballed from there and now we are in the middle of buildingĀ Cascadia Micro Grow. We have assembled an amazing team, and I am super crazy excited about our controller.

To support this new venture, I needed to set aside my dreams of complicated plumbing and custom grow room enclosures. I still need grow space to test this controller out in, and really fine tune it’s control theory. So I am getting a tent, a T5 light and doing it budget style.

This space will be my micro grow log. I hope to document how our controller can enable the casual grower.

Day 1

Soaked Rock Wool bricks overnight in RO Water from the grocery store (ph ~5.5)

Put a piece of sand paper in a pill bottle, added the seeds and gently shook to scuff up the shell. This is suppose to help water permeate the shell. (Jorge Cervantes)
