I have seen a few topics covering grow lights with FarmBot and noticed that the consensus is a yes and no answer. My immediate concern is how to effectively use growlights on a FarmBot when the gantry would slide into them?
To me, it seems adding grow lights almost negates the purpose of FarmBot being an automated tool.
What I learned is that grow lights need to be:
On 12 hours a day
2 feet maximum above plants to be effective
So, am I correct in assuming there is not a feasible solution to this issue? I work with a lot of schools and ease of use would lower the barrier to entry and I feel like adding grow lights may increase the barrier.
