Introduction: Indoor Planter Box
The concept is to make a envoirment in which plants grows. Like the sun is replaced by growlight which gives red and blue wavelength .... which the plants absorb..... air is given in by an exhaust . and nutrients of organic waste is soacked in the water to make the plant grow faster.
Step 1: What U Need
1. 2 wooden boxes ..... (i used 8*12) hight 18.8 inches
2. 1 exhaust not a very powerfull one and the one wth makes less noise
3 1 GrowLight (with adapter)(i used : https://www.ebay.in/itm/Grow-Light-220V-E27-72-LED... )
4 Acrylic sheets acording too your dimensions of ur box.....u just need to close it from the inside of the box
5 Organic waste
Step 2: Making the Box
U just need to stick the acrylic sheet from the inside sides of the box ( i preffer to use aryldite to stickthe sides of the farming box )
And make some slite holes ..... so when the exhaust will pump air out of the box the air outside will rush to get in the box and this is how plants will take the co2 and give o2 by through the exhaust
Step 3: Installing the Exhaust
Make a hole in the upper box in the center according to ur exhausts sucking hole .... and screw the exhaust on the opposite side
Step 4: Installing Growlight
Make one hole besides the exhaust either left or right, at the center of ur bulb holder but the wires of the light through the hole and screw the Grow light on the inside side of the upper box.
Step 5: Making Holes for Watering System
I drilled 6 holes 3 on the front and 3 on the back so that the water can be equaly distrubuteted in the roots
I put syringes in the holes .... which will water the plants when pushed ........ i prefer putting 10 ml syringes
The middle one distributes to both the pants so a plant will get 15 ml of water in one push of 3 syringes i prefer watering the plants 4 times a day only ( 50 ml at a time that means 4 pushes of 3 syringes ) so the plant gets 200 ml of water every day
Step 6: Nutrient Solution
Step 1 : grind the organic waste
Step 2 : Soak the organic waste in water so that all the nutrients get absorbed to the water
Step 3 :strain it with a strainer
Step 4: put the left fiber in the soil to make it healthier
Step 5 : grind the soil a bit so that fiber and soil can be mixed together
Step 7: 3 2 1 Grow !!!!!
And yep its ready
and make sure swithing the light on when u wake up and close it by 7 ( i switch on the light at 7 am)
if u use aromatic and fragnent plants the exhaust will give fragnant air out
THANK YOU !!!!!
