SPARKLE ARDUINO BUCKET

This is my bucket build! It’s a 5gal container lit up with three A19 style 8.5w soft white Philips bulbs, which were dismantled and mounted to different heatsinks specifically for height clearances, and to run a bit cooler. It is also completely Arduino controlled and features automatic watering, you can find the code here. My goal was to have a Single 5gal Bucket with no risers and use passive intakes instead of forced like i see a lot of people doing, and also have pretty much everything contained in the one bucket. It consumes 26-28 Watts of energy, and for me cost around $40 to make.
