COFFEE BUCKET

I'm having so much fun as a new Bucketeer! Just built my first space bucket with a 180w UFO LED, and I am now about 4 days after sprout of my first plant! I'm so grateful to the space bucket community for giving me such detailed insight as to how to build my bucket and how best to take care of a small scale grow like this! I've also added a thermometer to my bucket set up as well as a little plant nanny cam.

UK SPACE TOTE

Moved to the UK recently, and since I do not know anybody I thought I’d grow my own. Glad to have found the /r/SpaceBuckets community for inspiration and advice. Here is what I did with my newly learned skills. In the lid of the top tote I added a 7-in-1 light fixture. I will be using a combination of LED. Being a bit of an electronics nerd I decided to automate my spacetote. I am using a RaspberryPi with some sensors, relays and a webcam. I am using a DHT22 sensor to measure temperature and humidity, a BH1750 to measure light levels, and a 4 channel relay module to control my lights and water pumps. Sensor information is pushed to the AdafruitIO cloud so I have nice graphs of my growing conditions. I use cron jobs and python scripts to control the timing of the relays for lights and watering. The webcam is managed using the MotionEye package. This allows easy live viewing of the camera and simple time-lapse creation.

XDIMIFTW BUCKET

I want to thank the community that gives the chance and information to everyone to grow with such creative way! The bucket part was easy and fun, decided to go with a 150w UFO LED for the main lighting and a strip of 5630SMD LEDs on the side. For airflow I have two simple PC fans. Thanks for looking!
