Things you will need

  • A large plastic container with a lid (Storage bin, garbage bin, et.)'
  • A reservoir or another container
  • One or more Spray head from a spray bottle
  • A submersible pump
  • A 1/4" hose
  • Net pots
  • Grow media
  • A couple strips of wires like those found in the package of garbage bags or strong strings.
1. The container
The container you use should be fairly large like a Rubbermaid 24 gallon storage bin with lid. The container should have drainage holes at the bottom.




2. The lid
The lid should fit the container perfectly. The planters or pots will be placed in precut holes in the lid of the container.




3. The planters (Mesh Pots) and grow media
It's important to note that you need to use mesh pots to allow the roots to grow down into the container.




4. The sprayers (Spray nozzle)
Go to your favorite gardening or hydroponics supply store or search for one here @ HydroponicSearch.com for spray bottles used for foliar feeding. Remove the spray head from the bottle(s). These will be used to mist the roots of the plants.

The sprayers are placed inside the reservoir and held in place with strips of flexible wires or strings. Squeeze the nozzle of the sprayer down to the "spray" position and wrap it with duct tape.

It's important to place the sprayer at the same level of the mesh pots so when it sprays, the roots are misted from the top and the water will obviously go down, feeding the roots as it fall to the bottom of the container and out the drain holes





5. The reservoir
You need an extra container or reservoir that will hold your nutrient solution.


6. The Submersible pump and grounded timer
The submersible pump will sit in the reservoir and set on a timer to mist the plants roots periodically throughout the day and night.


7. The 1/4" hose
The 1/4" hose will be connected to the pump and the spray nozzle. The pump will be turned on by the timer and force water through the hose to the spray nozzle. Because you've taped the nozzle trigger down in the spray position, water will automatically emit from the sprayer, feeding the roots.


Continue to the next page to get an illustration of what your system should look like when it's completed.

Once you've completed the construction of your aeroponics system, it should look similar to the illustration below.





Footnotes:
We do not recommend using organic nutrients. Although both chemical and organic nutrient are likely to clog your sprayers, the chances of that occurring is higher if you use organic nutrients.

If this system doesn't seem like the one for you, check back shortly for the next aeroponics plan that will be even easier to build and operate

Edit:Stoney
i have the mico spray jsts heads. they cost me 6.95 for ten and the heads do a 360 degree spray. i was not planning to use a spray bottle but i was going to use the concept of the design. this is something that if someone did not have the money this is an alternitive.

I am so sorry, I did not think that I would hurt your feelings.

My apologies to you all.

Stony Bud, you may delete my account.
I have no use for misinformation.

If you dont have the money to build it rite then dont
build it. Build something simpler.
Aeroponics units are finicky enough. Not goos for an amateur.

Peace out.

We are not ban happy here. All stoney was doing was to keep this debate at a semi-freindly manner. We love a debate. We do not wish to delete your account. Just keep it freindly. Thats all we ask. ;)

Happy growing.

Hey ya'll, you ain't gotta be payin these kind of prices for some timer.

the most ubiquitous continuously variable timer out there is made by the Cana-Kit people. They sell electronic devices, some in kit form, some already slapped together. They're 18 bucks a piece, come with a relay already installed, and have independent timing (Space and Mark is what on-off times are called on Astable Multivibrators fellas - that's what this is, a timer based on a 555 timer with bleeder diodes that make the timings continuously variable, and independent.)

typical place to find one is here: well....***.. i can't copy paste the link here.

Well in any case it's called the CanaKit, ( that's the company's name) UK191.

That's the model number.

It's what everybody uses for variable timers.

You'll have to google it i can't make a link appear in this reply box.

And by the way the 18 or 19 bucks is from the canakit peiple themselves. There are people online who sell them for about 15 bucks, plus the same or similar shipping, i just didnt go around looking for the place.
