HYDROPONIC Gardening Modular System Controlled by Smart Phone DIY Project
This HYDROPONIC Gardening Modular System Controlled by Smart Phone DIY Project was created by a group of high school young adults and they want to share with the world how they did it. It is just bragging unless you share how others can make one as well.
Hydroponics is a subsection of hydroculture, the method of growing plants without soil, using mineral nutrient solutions in a water to grow. Plants may be grown with only their roots exposed to the water mineral solution, or the roots may be supported in perlite or gravel. The nutrients in hydroponics can come from an array of different sources; these can include to fish waste, duck manure, or commercial fertilizers.
Hydroponics is a hobby a lot of people work with because it is an eco-friendly manner to growing plants. Hydroponics uses very little water compared to normal techniques to grow plants in soil and it results in stronger plants because it has the essential nutrients given to them.
It is also an enclosed system that does not need fertilizer, another good factor for the environment.
The project is hydroponic cultivation, an indoor gardening system based on hydroponics, the method of plant growing using mineral solutions rather than soil. The general structure is built from aluminum and the water circulates through pipes cut and glued manually through multiple levels it passes.
Each level is connected to establish the pots and 3D pieces are designed so the pots don’t move and support the lighting. A water tank flows the through to every level and it features a drain when it is time to put fresh water.
It consists of three parts: the modular structure, the electric circuit, and sensors. The structure is of PVC and aluminum to support the hydroponic system, the electronic circuit controls the power, and the sensors measures and controls the data. The system keeps control of the plants by looking at their air temperature, surrounding humidity, water, pH, and overall time.
The system also has ways to modify them when necessary such as a water plant, extra light, and feeder. This system will send the information digitally straight to an app on the smartphone via open source code.
