We're growing a lot of plants; watering and regulating lighting takes enough effort to warrant automation. This is being done indoors using a rack based system.
This page is to document our efforts, share what did and did not work as well as provide accurate representations of cost and results. This is not an inexpensive nor easy endeavor, the goal is to develop an actual product/kit which you will be able to buy on Tindie.

Steveland is based off a book by Sue Burke; "Semiosis"
