Introduction: Cheap and Easy Led Grow Light
this is my version of the led grow light. the blue and red led are good for stimulating plant growth and the clear give off all the other colors the green is to make the light look clear instead of blue and red like most led grow lights
Step 1: Materials
1.a metal pie pan
2.one blue high output led strip
3.one red high output led strip
4.one clear high output led strip
5.optional one green high output led strip
6. 12 volt adapter
the led strips should only be about 2 dollars for two inchs at the local electronic shop and should have a self adhesive side
put the led strips on the inside of the pan. put four holes in the pan so the wire can go to the top of the pan.
pull the wires though the holes and connect the positive wires together them do the same for the negative wires and connect them up to the adapter. i wrapped the wires with some electrical tape to make it look neater and to prevent shock.
Step 4: The Test
plug in the adapter into the wall if the lights turn on the your ready to hang your light. if the lights do not tun on the check the wire and make sure the positive is not connected to the negative. and for hanging i used some cheap paper clips that i had they hold on to the rim really good.
now place the plant of your choice under your light and watch it grow. in the photo i have my pepper plant in my home made hydroponic system that i show how to make in another instructable
