Volume 6

Potatoes can be grown in hydroponics to yield 2 x Potato Seeds at an early stage and 2 x Potatoes when fully grown.
Plants need the following:

  • Atmosphere: Minimum atmosphere pressure 7.7 kPa, with traces of CO2 (at least 0.1 mol) and under 1% Pollutant (X).
  • Temp: Minimum atmosphere temperature of 0C (293K) is required for growth, under 0C (273K) or over 50C (323K) the plants will die after 5 minutes.
    • The ideal temperature range for maximum growth speed is between 20-30C
  • Water: 5-60 Degree Celsius to avoid taking damage
    • Plants require Water, but consume only ~0.043 mols per hour (0.0216)
  • Light: either sunlight, or a Grow Light are required for plant growth. A mature plant won't die or take damage when in darkness.
  • Optionally: you can increase yield or growth speed by adding fertilizer created in a Portable Composter or an Advanced Composter
