the misting of the clones...

I had an idea tonight, haven't figured out exactly how yet, but this should give you an idea of what I'm thinking...


That's the spritzer I use for my clones...   I've got some nice strong servos left from my R/C days...

I just have to figure out how to mount it. I supposed some sort of frame that holds both the servo and the bottle.

The dome over my clones is a an opaque storage bin from the dollar store, and has a hole cut in one end that used to have a computer fan in it, so I can mount it there.


You can see the fan in this picture. When I use it with the DWC cloner, I use the fan, and don't need to mist the clones because the water keeps the humidity nice and high. When I use the jiffy pellets, I constantly need to mist them, especially since I've been using the heated seedling mat.



Of course, there's probably an easier way to do this, like use an electric pump and pump through a nozzle, maybe something from the hydro shop? Not sure, I'll check before I go much further with this, but in the end, I'd like to automate the misting of the clones...
