Indoor Hydroponics

Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been gearing up for indoor growing.

I got a 4 foot by 4 foot growing tent and set it up in the basement.  Then I picked up the shelving and some 25 quart bins with covers.  I drilled holes in the covers and fit in some 3 inch pods to hold the germinated seeds.

Here are some pictures:

This is the grow tent. You can also see one of the containers that will hold the 9 plants.

Here are some lettuce seeds, germinating in ph corrected distilled water.  This is about 3 days in.  I got distilled water and some ph adjustment liquids to make sure the PH was between 5.5 and 6.5.

Here’s looking into the grow tent with one T5 4-foot fluorescent light installed

The first shelf I got was 3 foot wide, but you can actually fit 4 foot shelves inside. Here’s a shot of the first tanks.  This was taken on Jan 30 2018.  I also got a second light for the second shelf.

This is a shot from Feb 14.  There are 4 tanks and two grow lights now.  The lettuce is doing the best, but the spinach isn’t too far behind.

This is from the 18th of February – some nice lettuce!
