Grow-O-Matic 2000

This was my attempt at creating a low-cost, energy efficient grow lamp using readily available parts that I have around the house. This is used to grow edible herbs (marjoram, yum) in my basement, in the middle of winter.


Ultra-bright blue LEDs. Wired up in series and parallel. Blue light stimulates leaf growth, or so I have heard. (Front)

2 panels of LEDs secured to a small piece of wood, covered by a piece of plexiglass


The wooden base, with the support arms


The lights and base, assembled. Looking good.
