LOR pixels for small trees

Recommended Posts

Has anybody used the LOR pixels for small trees? I've read somewhere that the pixels are delicate and there was a problem tying them to branches with tie wraps which makes them subject to cracking and breaking. Has anybody had any experience with this problem? What is the best way to tie them to a tree branch? I was thinking that if you tie both wires behind the pixel there would be less chance of breaking the plastic causing water leakage or failure? Any thoughts?

And here it is working in "VU Meter" mode:

There are eight (8) "legs" that are each eleven (11) pixels long.  It takes a bit of time to get the configuration set up properly in the sequencer.  I had to waste 12 pixels to get the spacing to work properly.

 

In hindsight... I think I could have done it better and used 12 pixels for each leg, and only 4 pixels would have gotten wasted. But it was my first attempt. (and with all the sequencing I've done, I'm committed to the 11 pixel height standard.

 

Also Version 1 only used one (1) tomato cage.

Version 2 will use two tomato cage stacked. This will give you more support and places to zip-tie the pixels onto.

10 rows of 10 is working ok for me this year (in a 180 degree configuration).  I will be running 9 trees.  I picked up some 1/2" spaced metal grid from home depot over the weekend I am going to try to mount them to.
