Testing indoor hydroponic garden made from scratch. This video was shot on the 7th day. Soybeans growing the fastest at about 6in tall. Lettuce is at 1.5in tall. Waiting for tomatoes and other beans.
Using a 5gal bucket below with ph balanced water then added plant nutrients. Air pump with air-stone for oxygen, 130gpm fountain pump on timer which pumps the water every 5hrs for 15min into upper tub with seedlings. Seeds are in rockwool cubes starting with 1.5in then moving up to 4in cubes.
65Watt CFL with 300Watt Equiv output. Water is pumped into the tub on the left, water raises to about 2in then exits on the right with a drain back into the bucket under. System cant overflow as its closed loop.
Since its indoors in our basement we control the air temp to 70′F and lighting which is on a timer.
Working so good were going to buy a couple larger growing trays maybe about 4×4′ and split up the crops plus add more lighting.
