    Aeroponic Understanding Pump Operation for Healthy Aeroponic Tower Gardens

    Hello there!! Excellent question. Is this setup indoors or outdoors? By the temperature mentioned I’d assume outdoor? I run my lettuce that grows outdoors 1 minute in and 5 minutes off.

    Unleash Your Creativity with 3D Printed Aeroponic Towers!

    I just wanted to show an example of the new threaded bucket lid flange. I printed this ages ago it seems and finally built another tower with it. Doing this is MUCH sturdier than using the thin snap on lids. You don't need to have the PVC pipe going all the way to the bottom of the bucket...

    Aeroponic Indoor Winter Garden Update - Strawberry seeds

    For the winter garden I ended up going with a 5x2' grow tent to put in the basement as this fit real well behind the basement door and doesn't take up an absorbent amount of space. Originally I was thinking about putting a larger tent (something like a 8x8') in the garage. Before investing in...

    I decided to setup a grow tent in the basement for my aeroponic towers in order to better control climate and pests.

    Unleash Your Creativity with 3D Printed Aeroponic Towers!

    I've got another design update for the towers! This time it's for the net cup holders. Version 1 is working well but as the plants matured throughout the season their roots caused a little bit of an issue with water backing up into the net cup and dripping over. This is/was a minor issue that...

    Last night we had an INSANE storm here in TN with super strong winds that took down a massive limb off our only tree in the yard and ripped off siding from our house! I took this photo below right after the limb came down around 8:30pm CST and you can see the tomato plants blowing in the wind...

    It's now been 67 days since planting! We're absolutely loving the flowers but really wishing I would have put up the little fence/trellis that came with this setup because the flowers are heavy and weighing down the plants for sure. But I have to admit they are very pretty! I mentioned in a...
