Automated Fogponic Grow Box

The Fogponic Grow Box is an automated, self contained, plant ecosystem. The Grow Box is a fogponic plant box within a humidity and temperature monitored box. The underside of the top lid has strips of LEDs in both blue and red to promote root growth and some flowering effects. The box should require low amounts of additional sun light and minimally impact the surrounding environment.

 

The grow system suspends mesh plastic pots so roots can reach mist generated by an ultrasonic mister sitting a few inches above water mixed with hydroponic grow solution. Timers turn everything on and off. Initial tests average around a $1.00 a month to run the system 24 hours a day.

 

I'm testing sprouting four pots of kale.
