There are few things in life as good as growing your own plant, herb and even medicine at home. Now you can in the smallest automated hydroponic system called the LabBox Grower (Patent Pending). This micro grow box was specifically designed to grow plants within a miniaturized bio containment unit.  From the specifically selected high intensity LEDs to the nutrient delivery mechanism, everything from the ground up was designed to provide the best  environment for a successful micro grow.

The Brain

Within each LabBox Grower is a controller that automates the watering cycles, light schedules and environmental temperatures. This control system utilizes a PicAxe 14M micro-controller preprogrammed with three different light schedules (24 Hours, 18/6 Hours and 12/12 hour), default temperature control to maintain a 75 degree temperature and watering cycles of 4 times a day.

Adjustments to your LabBox can be also controlled through the free LabBox Server software. By connecting your LabBox to your computer via a serial cable, you can control your box right from the computer. And for those that are total Geeks like us and understand the BASIC programming language, you can re-program the 14M PicAxe micro-controller to do basically anything you want.
