Hey Folks, I wanted to share a Tulip project I’ve been working on at home.
I’ve been growing food mushrooms at home—mostly different strains of oyster mushroom alongside some experiments w/ shitake, chestnut, lionsmane, and others—for about two years now. It’s easy outdoors in the summer, but I wanted to try it in the winter, too, so I built a version of this “boomroom” by Northspore. It allows me automate a humidity schedule and control air exchange in a greenhouse environment.
Point is, where you’re talking about condition monitoring, you’re talking about something that is bread and butter for Tulip. So I borrowed and Edge MC and some phidget sensors, and built an app to help me track conditions in the tent over time.
Here’s an overview of the app:
The results have been tasty:
~1.5lbs of yellow oysters
A nice cluster of Chestnut mushrooms almost ready to harvest.
