First off, I’m quite new at this and have a lot of questions and a great desire to test and try out my own theories and this “blog” of sorts will be influenced by this. I plan to use this thread as some kind of documentation of my garden and what problems and challenges I encountered and hopefully how I overcame them.
So I plan to build a MK2 garden, that is a reservoir of nutrients and water furthest down with plants standing in old soda bottles over top. Water will be sprinkled over the bottles with the help of an air-pump and some tubing.
1 x 5 gallon water-bottle from a dispenser to act as my reservoir
4 x 1.5 liter soda-bottles, PET-bottles, to act as my plants little greenhouses/hanging gardens
1 x Aquarium air-pump. As I’m not quite sure how much air is needed and as I got several laying around. Different types will be tested.
1 x one-way valve for air hose
1 x thin air hose. Several diameters will be tested to get desired result
1 x thick plastic hose. This will be my “shower” . Again different thicknesses will be tested
1 x paneled box. This is purely for esthetic reasons. Somehow a 5 gallon water-bottle isn’t considered “decorative”
2 x 1.6 meter long square steel rods. Exact width of the rods are still undecided
