This video will show you how you can make your own greenhouse powered by USB!
cAN YOU ADD AN INSTRUCTABLE OF HOW TO MAKE THISH BUT WITH RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES CAUSE I CANT KEEP MY COMPUTERON ALL NIGHT
<p>here you go friend, actual 1W high power LED personal plant light operating on rechargable batteries OR usb ! </p><p>this was 5yrs ago, wow</p>
Why bother with this at all then. You could just get a small battery operated flashlight, and cut the hole to match the size of the flashlight. Of you could make it exactly as it, and buy a plug to USB charging adapter.
I'm actually lucky when it comes to that. I already had an outlet to usb converter that came with by energizer AA/AAA recharger. You could also get a battery housing and hook it up, but I know not if you would have to resistors and all that stuff.
Blue LEDs stimulate the plant to make more leaves. (Good for Bonsai or non-flowering plants)&nbsp; Red LEDs make the plant put out flowers.&nbsp; If you don't want to use your computer as a power source, you can plug the USB cable into a USB charger adapter. (made for charging Phones and MP3 players)&nbsp; You can find them for as little as $1.99 on line. Also, If you don't have the skill to make one of these, you can get a USB powered notebook light.. (Goldengadgets.com hasd them for under $5.00)<br />
I make my lamp according to the video but the lights burned out in a few hours.<br /> do I need a special light????
No but resistors, this video isnt any good also dont do it without resistors or it may harm you're main board...<br />
I have constructed many LED lamps for plants and I doubt that a cheap LED flashlight will produce enough light to make your "plant flourish"... but it will provide a good supplement if you're in a dark room.
I question this exact method, as I would be concerned with humidity and the circuitry. However, this is a great project and has given me some ideas for some supplemental lighting ideas for my indoor garden. Thank you for sharing.
one way to deal with humidity is to take a small piece of clear plastic bag, hot-glued to the bottle around the lamp part
lol I used the same exact USB cable
That is a sweet thing to make. I like the look of the mini-rose too.
P.S. you can also recharge your phone from mine;)
liked your idea and had all the bits:) bonus. made mine from a dynmo powered wind up torch. mine is rechargable has 2 led settings. the only thing I didn't have was the coke bottles. so it cost me about $50. can't buy coke without the scotch;)
First! Now I can grow cilantro in the winter to make salsa.
