  4. Yea I’ve cloned a few plants. I have potatoes in it now, so I hope to post
    my progress after a couple of months. I use a basic 300 gallons/hr
    pump…nothing special

  5. I am impressed with the potatoes, do you have any videos with hydro/areo
    grown potatoes already done?

  6. I also have the comprehensive step-by-step video guidelines on how to build
    your own selfmade Aquaponics system. Its really easy that even your grandma
    is able to do it! Check out the following website to find out more:

  7. Hey Drift, what I plan on doing is installing a nozzle. That way I can let
    the nutrient drain out and check ph etc. If I want to add nutrient
    solution, I just poor it down one of the plants or take the top off if the
    plants are small. I hope that helps and I properly understood your

  8. good stuff!

  9. Wow potatoes!

  10. okay. gave you grown anything in this system? what pump did you use?

  11. Check out ultrasonic foggers for aeroponics. You might really enjoy that
    versus the pump/sprayer combo you got here. Nice vid.

  12. Lets see, pump about $35, net cups $3, Bins $12, pvc & sprayers $10, tubing
    $10. So maybe $60-$70. I had parts laying around so it’s hard to tell
    exactly. Remember you can use the bin as a cloner, aeroponics growing, or
    hydroponics as well. So if you do build it, you will have many uses for it.
    I know hydroponically it works fine because its the same setup to a few
    other systems I’ve built.

  13. Not as of yet. I hope to document a side by side experiment with hydro/aero
    vs. traditionally grown potatoes. Unfortunately it will be a couple months
    out cause it’s now time for us to plant potatoes here in the desert.

  14. Nice to find someone else trying aeroponic potatoes, I built a system last
    year but didn’t get to try it properly so this spring will be its big test,
    i’ll be watching to see how you get on! and upload my attempts when i get
    it going.

  15. I plan on using foggers instead of sprayers if it becomes a problem. As for
    the amount of water, I just use enough to cover the pump.

  16. Thx for watching. That would be great. Potatoes is going to be tricky, but
    well worth the challenge. I’ll be waiting to see how things go for you.
    Also, be sure to keep me posted on any tricks and tips you have, I’ll be
    sure to do the same.

  17. In the process of building this system and I’ve ran into one problem. When
    the plants get heavy later on in the growing process, It will become a task
    to lift the top bucket from the bottom one in order to do routine things
    like check ph level and ppm. Let alone change nutrients. Currently trying
    to figure out a way of changing nutes and testing water without having to
    take the first bucket off.

  18. Thats a great looking set up! Thats pretty cool that you grew potatoes in
    that type of system. thanks for the video Larry

  19. You know great idea, I’m going to try that eventually. I read a blog where
    a guy grabbed a fogger from petsmart and had great results.

  20. Please let me know because I like your design (putting the resevour in the
    bottom helps with the footprint in smaller areas), but I want to know how
    good these work before I build one. How much did.all the parts cost?

    February 20, 2014 at 1:37 pm

  21. Thanks, I am looking forward to it.

  22. how do you keep the roots from covering the sprayers? and how much water do
    you fill the bottom container with?
