POLITICALYCORRECTify: Handy little setup but its not aeroponics
afrothetics: The spray head is called an "Adjustable Spray Head Nozzle" with a range from 0-360, and sells for about $2 as stated in the video. Lowe's carries the Orbit "shrub nozzle" for $1.88 and the Rainbird equivalent for $2.09. Both have built-in filters, an added value.
Sheds Direct Manchester: How much does it cost? I really want to purchase the soonest. It is one of my ultimate dream to grow my all time favorite plants in hydroponics systems. I am very much challenged on this matter. Nice information!
Jack Watson: Is home depo in America lol
10p6: That is not aeroponic, that is hydroponic. Aeroponics uses superfine mist, and that is far from that.
Jesse Belvery: What pump are you using?
ray zhong: whats the pump size?
JohnyTwoGuns Hitler: good for shallow root systems don't ask me what plants have shallow root systems i just know that weed has huge roots that would completely fill that bucket in no time aeroponic pump and all
Learn2Draw: I don't consider this aeroponics. It is just splashing water inside the net instead of dripping it. To be aeroponics you need a fine mist, and thus a much more powerful pump. A fogger tip will do the trick. I am working on a way to use a small fan to get the micron droplets, semi fog.
Harry Brown: So what if you want to grow 6 plants, I have to buy 6 Pumps?
leow: that s not aeroponics its more of a sparkling type of thing , if i'm correct for aeroponics you need a very strong pump in order to create some kind of mist that passes like a breeze thru the roots
Robert Brennan: Thanks for the comment, I have had good results with this system as shown on my blog. Perhaps there is some confusion on the operation of the pump. If you run the pump 24/7 then you would add a great deal of heat to the system, however if you only run the pump for per determined times say 15 min per hour the there seem to be no significant heat build up.
Robert Brennan: Thanks for the comment, There is a filter built into the pump that keeps the roots out. Perhaps it depends on the plants root system. My 4 foot tomatoes did quite well for me. you can see the results on my blog.
Robert Brennan: Air flow would not be that big of a deal for one plant. I you do what to move the air around some, I just use a desk fan to ad a light breeze
Robert Brennan: Cool let me know how it goes I have not been able to fruit with Fluorescents in the past. That said, I have always had multiple plants at one time. I have had some success with LED but nothing like good old HPS. I will be interested in your results.
Tyler Gavett: Thanks so much. I was actually thinking a 2-lamp 4ft fluorescent with some 6400k's would do a good job as well. I actually met the General Hydroponics guys at Electric Forest (music festival) and snagged a GO box for 10 bucks, so Im good on nutrients. Will making sure I have good air flow be a big factor as well since I am going to do this in my bedroom (2 windows on one wall) or my basement?
Robert Brennan: Thanks for the question. You could I my experience you will need HPS for fruiting plants. 120 watt HPS should do it. You will also need some hydroponics nutrient.
Tyler Gavett: Thanks so much, If I were to do this to grow one pepper plant in a closet, what light would you recommend. And is there really anything else needed?
