A few years ago I setup a hydroponic garden on my flat roof as I have no yard. Basically a demonstration on how engineers garden. The whole project got set aside after my son was born due to the financial and time constraints he brought with him. Hopefully I will get it up and running again this summer.
Which system would you suggest? I planted some cucumbers, zucchini, spinach and kale in dirt starter pods. The packet said start 3 months before planting, within two days all have out grown the pods. I do not want to repot in dirt, and was thinking of constructing a system. Not necessarily as the illustrated/structural set up below, but rather keeping the same operational system/concept presented below.
This would be a great learning and hands on project for homeschooling as a family. Assuming a hardware and pet store should have all the items: water circulation pump, air stone, hardware, etc.. I have plant nutrient solution from using an Aerogarden system.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
