Aeroponics

Aeroponics systems use mist to spray water-soluble nutrients directly onto plants roots.

This aeroponics project will work on a PVC pipe design similar to lettuces.jpg

Design

  • 400mm PVC pipe foundation for the plants
  • plants sit in net pots drilled on top of pipe
  • misting outlets running through length of pipe directed at root structures
  • pump system controlled by microcontroller (arduino or whatevs)
  • pH and EC sensing to alert on nutrient status
