In space shutles they grow food with led lights.
Has any one tryed that on hemp?
I think less power needed, no heat problem and u can change the spectrum of the light for vegetate grow to flowering spectrum.
Covering all walls and sailing with leds.

Space shutles??? LED Lights to grow bud?? That sounds totally spaced out dude.... Is that some NASA weed growing project out in space?

Let me know if that will work or not...

 

Peace...  By the time my grandson be my age now. They will probably be able to grow some carzy bud out in space..."SpaceDro"

I think they were doing experiments with growing under LEDs on the international space station.

I don't know if they were able to actually produce food, or if they were just trying to demonstrate that plants can be grown in zero G, with low powered lights.

LEDs have improved enormously in the last few years, but I'm not sure if they're yet able to pump out enough light to effectively flower cannabis. There's a pretty big difference between enough light for certain plants to survive and and enough light for cananbis to flower.

Still, these sorts of technologies usually advance in leaps and bounds, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was possible to grow with LEDs in the future. Keep watching the skies!

I'm still wondering what happened to 'sulphur bulbs'. They were supposed to be able to revolutionise indoor growing, then they disappeared. Hmmmmm

I wonder how many cannabis plants would be required per astronaut to recyle their CO2 back to oxygen?

I guess you'd have to keep them on a near constant veg cycle, to maximise their CO2 period, and use the fewest plants for the job.

Maybe some sort of high-THC ruderalis hybrid, that would flower regardless of the light cycle. Zero-G THC...

Plants could probably perform other functions, like cleaning water and breaking down solid waste.

Cannabis would be a good choice, as one of the most vigourous plants around.

And think of the potential for serious sunlight in space. You wouldn't need LEDs if you angled your garden right.

Nice topic. Space cadets in high.

About those leds, nasa has allready developed method for space growing.

first step was the aero. (Have you ever thinken, that where the idea of aero had come.) Aero is the only possibility to grow in zero-g (I think).

Second step was the lights. As we know lights need massive amount og energy. It is possible that lights would need meny times more electricity than the shuttle it self. Leds were answer to this. Leds can be used in growing, but there has to be many of them. Possibly 50-100 or even more. Half of the leds must be red and other half must be blue. As you know, that cowers the needed spectre of lite.

I think that some one have tried this, so if enyone finds pictures or grow reports, let us know. I havent found any, but I am quite interested to see would it be worth of trying.
