Project 1 - Plan for Iterating

Planning to Iterate

  • Plants could choke if they are grown too close to each other. I should research the best distances between the plants for the placement of grow cups.
  • Make sure the grow cups are placed at the correct height above the water so the plants won’t drown.
  • Offer more tray configurations with different placements of grow cups to allow more types of plants grown.
  • Make the top of the tray detachable so the tray can be easily and cheaply reconfigured to grow different plants.
  • Create a new lighting system or make the height of the system adjustable.
  • Choose a good growing medium to regulate the amount of water that reaches the plants.
