New winter Micro-green garden planted 1-5-2016 using an off the shelf LED Aerogarden with a grow bed attachment and my own pump modification for a fluid level switch to act as an overflow fail safe. The growing substrate is shredded coconut coir fiber. With the modifications, the Aerogarden is being used as a flood and drain hydroponic system that is currently set to flood every six hours. I will add updated pictures as it grows.
Edit, Ginger: Fluid level switch, and planted Chef's Gourmnet Spicy Mix Meslun, below.
01-21-2016 After a little over two weeks of growth and one nutrient recharge the clipping for salads can begin and continue for about two weeks before a replant is necessary. The float switch worked flawlessly and prevented the unit from overflowing as it did before. I have upped the flood frequency to once a day to account for the vigorous growth rate.
