Description

The misting controller that works just like a leaf! The weight of the mist settling on the stainless steel "leaf" turns off the solenoid. When the water evaporates, the "leaf" rises turning on the solenoid valve and starting another cycle. Leaf is adjustable for more or less misting. Includes 24 VAC transformer and 20' of 18-gauge two-strand bell wire for easy attachment to a 24V solenoid.

Standard Features

  • Works on the principle of evaporation - The weight of the mist settling on the stainless steel screen turns off the solenoid.
  • When the water evaporates, the "leaf" rises and the cycle starts over by again turning on the solenoid valve.
  • Made with Electronic Components. It can be shipped by ground, sea, or air.
  • Each Electronic Leaf is supplied with a 24 volt AC transformer attached with 20' of bell wire.
  • Designed to be operated on 24 volt AC current.
  • Prewired with 20' of 18 gauge two strand bell wire for easy attachment to a 24 volt solenoid.
  • L.E.D. signifies the solenoid is energized.
  • Very easy to install - simply place on the misting bench, balance the "Leaf" and attach the wires to your solenoid valve (solenoid valve no included).
  • The Electronic Leaf housing is made of durable stainless steel.
  • Leaf is adjustable to provide more or less moisture to plants or cuttings.

  • Not good for well water applications or heat mat & perlite propagation
    We have had two electronic leafs over 6 years. Since we have heavy iron deposits in our well water, the paddle ends up accumulating iron sludge and doesn't turn on until it is cleaned. The other problem occurs because the humidity as measured by the leaf in the greenhouse is not representative of the dampness of cuttings sitting in perlite on heat mats next to the leaf. We have transitioned back to a programmed controller that turns mist on and off at programmed intervals.
  • Unit doesn't work and replacement was old and used.
    Electronic Leaf arrived but could not be adjusted as described in the manual. The manufacturer sent a replacement unit immediately. The replacement unit was used, dirty, and broken. It's serial number was about 100,000 lower than my new unit. I swapped the weight between the two units, and now the original/new unit works great. I sent email and letter to Phytotronics (cc: to Greenhouse Megastore), and I also included a copy of the letter in the return package. No response from the manufacturer. Greenhouse Megastore shipping and billing was perfect; not their problem. Avoid Phytotronics products.
  • Love the electronic leaf
    I Bought and tested this to use with i propagation bench i had just built. I just finished my first test. Very happy new clones with good roots. The electronic leaf was easy to get to know after a few minor adjustment goofs.
  • Best propagation controller
    This is the best mist controller for propagation. It will give you just the amount of water the plants need, no more and no less, because it works based on the moisture on the surface of the leaf. This principle allows it to automatically adjust to the temperature and humidity in your propagation chamber even as those factors change between day and night or with the weather. It does require periodic adjustments and cleaning as mineral or algae build up on the leaf. In my experience, a once a week adjustment has been plenty with a cleaning every couple of months.
  • Great product
    The electronic leaf has helped reduce the amount of time I spend caring for the greenhouse. I don't have to worry about my plants having too little or too much water.
