DIY Lettuce Raft System

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Next , future project...

I'm feeling the urge to grow lettuce, more than the 7 pod system can supply.

The next conversion is for a 'raft' system, this comprises styrofoam (or similar) which floats on the surface of the water in a rubbermaid type container. In the foam you drill several holes and place net pots into them, probably 2". In the net pots go rockwool with lettuce seeds/herbs in, backfill with hydroton grow rocks for stability. Nutrients, as usual, will be the General Hydroponics Flora 3-part range.

Fountain Based Aeroponic System


This is one of my many attempts to build an aeroponic system. I live in a flat so the system needs to be compact, quiet and easy to maintain. This one worked out a little more expensive as I bought some proper flowering lights and a dedicated grow tent. However the actual hydroponic parts were reasonably cheap.

Need help growing cucumbers and tomatoes in my Pro-200

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

 Hi, I have 7 Aerogardens total.  4 Classic and 3 Pro-200.  (currently only using 2 of the Pro's).  I've been very successful growing lettuce, herbs and cherry tomatoes.  I am trying for the second time to grow the tomatoes (ruby heirloom) and pickle cucumbers (burpee picklers).  I am good about keeping it dark once the system shuts off.

A 'Classic' Re-Design

The ongoing project this time is to install an air pump and air stone into my Classic. Why? Because I want to move away from the water pumps which have proven so unreliable for me, having an aerated AG (similar system to the new AG6 line) will make things more reliable and save my sanity!
