The Patriot's Garden employs a single, vertical CFL to produce maximum yield from minimum power. CFL's (compact florescent lights) will produce abundant fruits, vegetables, and flowers so long as the plants are kept VERY close to the bulb, no more than 6" away. With the vertical mount, plants 'hug' the bulb to keep all the flowers within the 6" range. The 6" range limitation is why we do not bother with reflectors - CFL's just don't have enough throwing power to bounce to the reflector and back with any intensity.
The Patriot's Garden has a passive fresh air intake and uses a 4" duct booster exhaust fan. If gardening odors are bothersome, a carbon filter (optional) can be mounted above the fan. Included are the mogul-base light socket assembly, 24-hour timer, security locks, and re-circulation fan. All you need is a single electrical outlet, a light bulb, and your potted plants.
Rentals include delivery to and pick-up from your ground floor location. Rental fees are by direct debit or recurring credit charges. Rentals do not include bulbs or carbon filters. Bulbs and filters can be purchased from us, from local retailers such as R.A.S.A Hydroponics, or online. The rental agreement is month-to-month, just call us after your harvest and we will schedule a pick-up. Keep your bulb and filter for your next grow.
