My husband and I originally looked at buying a pre made aeroponic system that was all ready to go. Once we saw how easy they looked to assemble, we decided to try making our own.
- We purchased a durable 18 gallon tote with a tight fitting lid, aquarium pump to spray the nutrient water up to the roots, an aquarium air stone to provide oxygen to the water.
- We cut circles in the lid where we wanted the baskets to go.
- I picked out which plants I was going to grow. The tomato plant started as a cutting from my container tomato. They are super 100's cherry tomatoes. The cucumer and three cauliflower were bought from the market in dirt pots. The lettuce I grew from a seed.
