Today I received the timers that I'm using for the grow lights, so I've installed v1 on my test shelves and put some basil in! I've put the timer on so the grow light is on for 12hrs per day (no idea what it should be), and the aeroponic mister detects humidity below a threshold and will activate the fan & mister.

Currently I'm a bit blind as to what the best parameters should be for humidity and lighting, but discovering these things is the whole point of the experiment!
