Here’s a cool project that combines two things that the Wise Mind Healthy Body team loves– a greenhouse and solar power! Granted- this is a small setup and would only serve the purpose of a hobby or learning experience for building a larger scale project. It would probably work well for a small chili pepper plant. Habaneros anyone?
“The greenhouse uses a solar panel to generate energy for providing a little extra light for house plants during the night. During the daytime the solar cell recharges the batteries. At night the LEDs turn on via the batteries to help the plants grow. Included is also a 10-minute super easy version that uses a 2-liter plastic bottle and an old LED garden light that even beginners could handle.”
