Hydroponic greenhouse #2 Inside
Time to go inside. So this is the view from the door.
On the left there are 3 rows of my version of dutch buckets, 21 in total. Most of them have 2 plants / bucket, I know they're a bit too crowded, but I expected only one plant to survive/be kept from each bucket; of course, just to spite me, they all survived and in the end I didn't remove the extras. Most are tomatoes, about 6 different varieties and if it gets way too busy in there I might cull half after the first crop from each. I also have a few varieties of peppers and which I put in at the same time with the tomatoes; I`m hoping that by the time the peppers get going the tomatoes will be about 1-2 feet taller and stop the peppers from being damaged by the sun.
The row closer to the centre has climbing plants : cucamelons -which are pretty cool, peas and it will also have some lemon cucumbers which are still at seedling stage and need a few more days before being transplanted in the system.
There is also a tromboncino squash which might be a mistake as these things seem to grow huge.
Picture from a month ago, 29th of April - the day I transplanted the first plants in.
Pics from yesterday - 1 month later.
A view of the piping.
The reservoir. Everything is powered by a submersible pump, set on a mechanical timer. 15 on, 15 off during the day (except when it's too hot and I just let it run); 15 on, 45 off during the night.
A picture of some really happy roots. Only a couple of the buckets have the "O" watering design, for the others I just stuck the dripline next to their roots.
On the right side of the GH I built some shelves, the goal is to have a microgreens production area there. At the moment I've got a few trays of micros, some fancy pineapple mint, lemon balm and random stuff populating the shelves.
Radish, basil, coriander micros.
That's about it for now.
Thanks for checking it out!
