About Our Project
Growing hydroponic Broccoli in December was a rewarding experience as the results were spectacular and it was a lot of fun to harvest broccoli when it was below zero outside. The broccoli was grown with a Boiling Frog® Classic Series 90watt UFO LED Grow Light over a period of 60 days. The light cycle consisted of 16 hours on with an 8 hour rest period. The nutrients consisted of a two part blend with a maintained TDS of 1500ppm. The PH levels were kept between 6.2 and 6.5 from transplant to harvest. The 90 and 180watt UFO LED Grow Light from Boiling Frog® uses a custom 6 band spectrum LEDs from Bridgelux, Epistar, and SemiLed.
