So after the hours spent finalising our models I presented the flourish lamp as a working hydroponic grow lamp, everything worked as expected for the presentation, to continue development I would need to look for more compact components, the Acrich LED was fine but the other LEDs required bulky components and the pump used in the hydroponic system took up more room than expected. This limited the amount of water I was able to put in which evaporated quickly.
I am happy with the final outcome and am glad that there is still more work I can do on this project. No doubt this will be installed in my house when I get back to New Zealand!
