Grow box controls heater, fans, and water

The Cheap Vegetable Gardner wanted more automation than their previous PS2 controller based grow system. This time they set out to design a full featured, compact grow controller that can measure temperature and humidity as well as control a heat lamp, fan, and water pump. An Arduino provides USB connectivity and interfaces the solid state relays and sensors. The assembled project all fits in a box but we are left wondering how much heat the four SSRs generate and will it be a problem?

  2. Whether or not you pay that much attention to your living space, a spot of lush green life does have a visual and psychological impact. A grow box will satisfy your desire to having that in your room 🙂

  3. You can grow your favorite vegetables all year round right in your kitchen or some available space at home. A grow box is pretty much a self-contained hospitable environment for your plant to thrive. Good to have one 🙂
