Developing Instrumentation for Monitoring Fast Plant Experiments

We are developing instrumentation to monitor light levels, temperature, etc. (we hope) for Fast Plant experiments. We are using the Mobile Studio, a very inexpensive electronics platform to make it possible for almost anyone to use our methods. Information on the Mobile Studio can be found at mobilestudioproject.com. We will post results from our experiments when they have had a chance to run their full course. In the meantime, however, we are interested in anyone doing experiments with different light sources (LEDs especially).

Welcome to the Fast Plants social network, Ken. It will be interesting to learn about your experiments with LED lights and Fast Plants. We are always interested in alternative growing systems.
