Starting with simple DIY hydroponics
I've been wanting to build my own hydroponics setup for a while, but up until now I've just been using my commercial grow pod for growing stuff. I actually bought some expanded clay pellets, nutrient solution and grow plugs ages ago, but just never actually built the setup.
I think it's due to a number of reasons, the main one being that the original design I was going to build was to be outside, but I don't have a suitable greenhouse to put it in. So I decided to look around at some other designs, specifically ones that:
- are for indoor use
- can be completely 3D-printed (as I can't just drive to IKEA in Cardiff due to lockdown)
- modular, and
- are very simple to build.
I've been interested in this modular vertical setup for a while, but based on the comments it is prone to leaking and hasn't been updated in a while.
I've been wanting to design a voronoi net cup for fun, and noticed while searching Thingiverse that someone else had the same idea. Not only that, but they have a simple, modular and indoor system to go with it. It doesn't look like the build has been replicated by any other people, but I decided to give it a try and the base is printing right now.
