I planted a few new seeds to test out the effectiveness of the final modules. I'm also experimenting with simple laser cut carboard shades to decrease the amount of stray light.

Images of installed shades will follow soon. Usually you probably don't want a 4 sides shade but 2 or 3 sided one, 2 sided ones for modules that are located in the middle and 3 sided ones for the two on the outside. Four sided ones only really make sense when you space the module very far apart.

I installed a MoRaLiS set into an Ikea Växer nusery Box but the same thing works for pretty much any nursery box. All I had to do was drill 3 holes into each side of the top.

Then you just slide the rods in and you're done.
