Overview

I'm building an aeroponics garden because my mother didn't believe you could grow plants without dirt. I'll learn her what for.

I'm basically following this design.

DONE:

  • Bought plastic tub
  • Cut PVC lengths and threw together the basic spraying tubing with T's (thanks Gregabyte!)
  • Cut holes in lid for the hanging mesh pots
  • buy/borrow/steal submersible pump (thanks Gregabyte!)
  • buy mini sprayers
  • drill holes in pvc for the sprayers
  • buy end caps for 3/4" pvc
  • fabricate some hanging mesh pots

TODO:

  • buy nutrients
  • steal some pearlite from Gregabyte ACTUALLY, I think I'll just collect some pebbles.
