Hello, it's my first project with LED grow light.

Step 2: Step 1: LED's for Life

First I took 8 x 3W LEDs 2 of blue and 6 of red ones.
Made the coolling system with aluminium metal plate and fan.

First my LED grow light system was just attached to regular table.
For all parts of my LED grow light system I payed almost 20$.

Step 3: Step 2: in 3 Weeks

In 3 weeks I added the timer that started working at 9-00 am and turned off ar 11-00 pm.

During that time I made my tests with LED's panel.

The working temperature of LED's panel was 26-28*C.
Room temperature was 22-25*C.

Soil temperature was 17-18*C.
My raspberry was feeling fine, but my cat made some of her testings of plant by eating a part of it. But my plant relived that damage.

Step 4: Step 3: Grow Box

After my cats attack I have made a grow box.

Now the raspberry is in safe place. And my grow box gives more reflected light to my plant.

Grow box is made higher to put my higher when it's time.

Step 5: Step 4: New Naighbour

Than I planted a seed of Latuce and I think it liked the light and grows green.

So that's all for now, and it's almous mounth or more allready and my raspberry still alive without normal sun light.

Waiting for flowering and berries I hope.

For more details mail me: yes I'm from Ukraine.

Step 6: Step 6: 7 Days Salat Growing

Here you can see the difference before and after 7 days under my grow light system. The lettuce is growing normally and after several weeks will be eaten I think. And the raspberry is still growing and I'll be waiting for flowering and berries.

nice simple light. i like it.. have you seen my setup? i like the fact that you've added a thermometer, good stuff

It was just testing built. Thermometer was just for mesuring if my fun does cooling normally. Next my system must be full spectrum grow light as raspberry should flower.

where did you buy the parts from?

BerryF (author)cas792014-12-18

All parts for LED grow light were bought at the local electronics market. No ebays or on-line shops just 1 hour trip old way.

nice, how long did it take you to build this?

BerryF (author)peppypickle2014-12-18

LED grow light 3-4 hours, grow box 1-2 hours. But those are my previos testing systems.
