This instructable details the fluorescent light system of the Biomonstaaar Bioreactor.
We thought that the fluorescent light system would be the easiest part of all, but that was before we realized we'd have to create our own plugs for the ballasts. It was difficult to find instructions for this online, so we've created an instructable detailing the process.
In another prototype, we'd like to automate the light system and route it through the webapp with the rest of the systems, but for now these fluorescent lights will be controlled with a simple 24 hour timer.

Step 1: Prepare the Cable for a Plug
First take a length of cable and use scizzors to separate the two halves. Then strip an inch or so of each side of the cable to bare wire using wire cutters.
