Seni nods at Ita and Tepam. "I think we need to figure out how many lights we are going to need? And how much space?"

Permalink

"Tools ...and kinds of plants?"

"If you're making an indoor garden, especially if you're going to grow food, you're going to need soil with lots of nutrients. And you'll need to set up a system for watering them, too. And it's important to make sure the lights are the right kind of light, too. Are they full-spectrum like sunlight? Cause if they're not they might not be able to feed the plants." 

Permalink

"Yes, they are, just like sunlight. I think we can get good soil? And water?" Tepam asks looking at Seni.

Permalink

Seni nods. "We don't need to make lots of food right away, though it would be impressive. And we can get a place that has water. It's going to be a basement level, I think."

Permalink

"If we can get lots of water we could do hydroponics instead," she adds. "It's harder to set up but lots of our food gets grown that way cause it takes up less space, and it lets people control the crops better." 

Permalink

"Could we do some of both?"

Permalink

"Might depend on how much space we have available. But I will write that down."

Permalink

"It's also hard to say how many lights we'll need until we know how much space we'll have," Lesi points out.

Permalink

"Do we have somewhere that would work, or are they gonna have to build it? I know we've got basement levels..." 

Permalink

"Oh, we just need to figure out the ratio of light per floor space."

Permalink

"And the first step of any project is figuring all the things you need to know before you pick a location."

Permalink

Nodnod, "That makes sense. So what else do we need to know? I think we'll need to actually test the lights to see how many we'll need per square meter, right? So that should be something for later. For now... we need to know what should be grown, and what else we need to grow it, and probably who we need to do this... Do you know some of this stuff, Sefoni?"

Sefoni knows a bunch of this stuff! If she were a normal purple in a normal purple school she would already be aiming for agriculture track. She can make suggestions for plant types and note down the tools they'll need and she can show them the right websites to find more information on the topic, too!

And Tepam knows how to check the light levels and how to set up experiments. They can do different light levels to check for efficiency too. And maybe see if their warming/cooling rings help with plants that need certain temperatures.

Permalink

Oh, that's a good idea! There's lots of plants that need certain temperature ranges, or don't need them but grow better if they stay inside them. 

Permalink

They can change lighting levels just by spacing the lights differently, right? Cause the enchantment only seems to have one brightness setting, though he can sort of see how they'd change it... it's too bad that they aren't allowed to change the recipes yet. 

Permalink

Spacing the lamps, shading and maybe some mirrors to redirect light.

Permalink

Cool! Maybe they could use one of the lab spaces in the building to do this? Though they'll need mirrors and stuff, they'll have to ask someone for those, probably. 

Permalink

Seni is writing everything down. A lab would be ideal, yeah maybe some storage area if they can't.

Permalink

They can ask! They can check aunt Patiri's office, she'll be able to tell them one way or another, if she's in.

Permalink

"Or we could just call her," Lesi reminds him, "We don't all lose our everythings all the time." 

(Mika pouts at her. Mean.)

Permalink

"She doesn't like when people interrupt her. I will text. What else do we need to ask her about?"

Permalink

"Besides lab space, we shoud ask about devices to measure light, and the mirrors, and I guess we still have to figure out water, seeds and soil?"

Permalink

Sefoni nods, "I have some we can use for experiments," she offers. "Soil and seeds, that is. We'll have to order a bunch more for the actual garden, though. We'll need pots and tools, too."
