Mother of all Fogger!!!

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

HI GUYS! I just built my first ever aeroponics system! It "fogs" not spray

scroll down and enjoy

 

Let's see how much I've spent

Ultrasonic Fogger - £15

Flora Series (Micro, Grow, Bloom) 1 Litre - £21

100x5.5 Net Pots  - £2

10 Litres Hydroton Balls (Clay Pebbles) - £5

EC Meter - £15

PH Strips - Free my mom gave it to me

10 Litres Rockwool Cubes - £5

Tub & Cover - £7

Transparent Cover - It's from ice cream drumstick which my mom bought so it's free!

£70!!! but that wasn't all that I've spent because I had some trial and error things lets say I've spent almost £100

 Anyway, they said Fogger requires LESS nutrients because the droplets are smaller therefore the plants absorbs the nutes better. I also don't need to worry about putting too much nutes!!  I don't know what else to say! If you got question, just ask!

 

OH DON'T FORGET ABOUT MY TOMATOES!!!

 I FORGOT TO SAY THANK YOU TO PEAT AND GISETTE!!!!

Yeah, I think normal pak choi

Yeah, I think normal pak choi is a couple months, maybe 70 days. Depends on the variety - the seed packet should say. And yes, they'll grow slower without enough light. How big are they?

The kind of fluorescent lights Beth and I use (48" two-tube fixtures) aren't very expensive. With tubes and fixture, maybe $20. How to hang them is a separate problem... But also, plain old compact fluorescent bulbs should be enough for greens. Have a lamp with a CFL you could add to the job? Or... the nutes could be too strong or too weak. You've got the first fogger system I've heard about, and I haven't seen recent pictures of your babies.

No, you don't clean or change the hydroton until prepping them for another crop, thank God... They're a nuisance to wash.

erm do I change the hydroton

erm do I change the hydroton balls everyweek? or clean them?

 

am I also doing something wrong? I started to grow my pak choi around   10/14/2009 it's now 11/18/2009 and they still dont seem to be big. How long is the growing time? I think everything would be different if I have a fluorescent light.

 

Gisette you said "Toy choi (dwarf pak choi) and mustard greens grow to harvest size in 30 days" well I guess it's because my one isn't toy choi.

Congratulations, Kristian!

I wonder how many more leaves there will be, actually. My toy choi didn't seem to have terribly many...

Looking forward to pix!

Hey Kristian, I was wondering

Hey Kristian,

I was wondering have you had any problems with heat from your fogger. I have put a 5 disk version in my unit and the nutrient temp has jumped quite abit .

Cheers,

Rob
