This DIY tiny aquaponics build was shown from design up to completion in an earlier post. The plans for this DIY ornamental aquaponics setup are also available in the Ebooks / Plans section. This tiny aquaponics system has been running for about a month now and we thought it was a good time to […]
Many great hydroponics or aquaponics systems can be built on your own with hardware store parts. This category features DIY builds related to hydroponic cultivation. Photos of builds and information will be shown in this category but don't forget to check the eBooks page for detailed plans.
The DFT hydroponics build #1 that has been discussed previously has been fully operational for a while now and it seems like a good time to go over the system as a whole. It is tagged as a DFT or Deep Flow Technique due to the standing water within the tubes that is more […]
Recently I went through some spare parts laying around. There was a 10 gallon aquarium that was not being used, A rubbermaid storage tote sitting around, and a spare general hydroponics waterfarm assembly. These pieces made up the bones of the new tiny aquaponics home system I created. Some key features of this build: […]
I had both extra time and extra parts & material today so I decided to make use of both. I worked on the deep flow technique hydroponics build #1 (DFT build #1) and wanted to make use of some unused space on the system. I had leftover polyethylene plastic from when I had a […]
Just posted another follow up video on the Deep Flow Technique (DFT) Hydroponics Build #1. In earlier posts and videos you can see the initial framework of the project, some images with plants and some without. After growing a good variety of different kinds of plants in this system (lettuce, chive, sage, basil, lemon […]
This is a short video of the recently posted Deep Flow Technique (DFT) indoor semi-vertical hydroponics build that was completed recently. If you are interested, this video will give you a better look at the build from a few different angles. Deep Flow Technique was chosen because it has a few advantages over Nutrient […]
[GARD] The latest project has been completing a semi-vertical DFT (Deep Flow Technique) hydroponic garden unit made to fit in front of a home window, indoors. This unit was made to be portable if need be (all the pipes were not permanently cemented together). This design was also made to work in tandem with […]
