Hydroponics

Hydroponics is an area with two functions: Auxiliary CO2 scrubbing and food generation. It is separated into 3 sections:

  • Algae pools specializing in CO2 Scrubbing. The kelp is also dried and made into flavour boosting packets.
  • Herbs/Vegetables For food. Currently, there are chives, cherry tomatoes and spinach on rotation. Certain crew members are protesting.
  • Medicine/Research For inedible plant based projects

The room consumes a large amount of power for lighting and climate control. It is kept at 26 degrees celsius (~80F) with a 90% humidity factor and the light cycle is 18 hours on, 10 hours off. The gravity is set to alternate between 0.8 and 1.2 G to encourage hardening of branches.
