Low Pressure Aeroponics -Day 49-

I haven’t had as much success with leaf growth due to over-crowding, so I waited until harvest day to post.  High planting densities are thought to have caused stunted shoot growth after Day 35. This system used a 1′ by 2′ piece of foam board and fit 21 plants; this setup results in a planting

Low Pressure Aeroponics Day 25

08 Mar 2018 The recycle timer was switched on an undocumented date to run 30 seconds on, 3 minutes off.  The original schedule was roughly 7 seconds on 5 minutes off.  On 07 Mar 2018, I switched the timer back to its original schedule.  Roots began to grow long in areas of the root chamber

DIY Low Pressure Aeroponics -Day 14-

It has been awhile since my last entry, laziness to be honest.  Most of the seedlings have developed large tap roots which, a pleasant consequence of my laziness. Day 14 + Setup   Behind the black tarp is a bucket filled with plain tap water to be used as a water supply for the plants. 

DIY Low Pressure Aeroponics Days 3-4-5

Day 3 (14 Feb 2018) – cotyledons on most sprouts had shed their seed husk and had already seemed to exhibit signs of phototropism so I gave them an extra shot of light up until midnight (sun has been setting around 05:30-06:00).  From now on the seedlings will be kept under a DIY light setup

Low Pressure Aeroponics -Day 1 & 2

-Day 1- Some seeds have started to open up, the germination chamber is hot and humid, expecting to have these guys under lights by day 4.  Pictures soon to follow -Day 2- Most seeds have opened up and some have began sprouting.  The germination chamber is hot and humid, most seeds are still likely on

DIY Low-Pressure Aeroponics – Day 0

  -Day 0- I had sprouted some buttercrunch seedlings over a week ago, however, in the winter sun they began to stretch beyond the point of no return.  I decided just yesterday to gather supplies to build a lighting setup so that I don’t lose any more seedlings due to light starvation.  I let my

High Pressure Aeroponics System – Prologue – Part 1

The Idea Hydroponics has been an interest of mine since the first time I had heard of it.  If I recall correctly it was as a result of playing Age of Empires III: The Warchiefs Expansion pack and using the Aztec Civilization.  There was a reference to “Chinampas” which upon further research was considered by
