Build Your Own Hydroponic Garden

Greenhouses Plans – DIY Hydroponics garden. Hydroponics is not a new development. It has been around since nearly the beginning of recorded history. That wonder of the ancient world known as the Hanging Gardens of Babylon was an exercise in hydroponics and rice has been grown hydroponically for centuries. Today, hydroponics is used in a variety of settings. Wherever soil is unavailable, hydroponic gardening seems to appear. Wildcatters on offshore oilrigs grow their own tomatoes. Cooks on nuclear submarines hydroponically grow vegetables to use in there crew’s meals. Right now, plants are growing on orbiting space stations without a single grain of soil. This video is an outline of the equipment and steps neccessary to build your own hydroponic garden. More information and diy hydroponics instructions can be found at

    You went to a lot of trouble masking over and sealing something see-through. Would it be less expensive to use a large Styrofoam cooler or a ceramic container?

    Nice build and plant support idea!

    do not add Miracle gro put a nutrition solution in the water by adding miracle grow it will interfere with the plants levels of nitrogen witch is critical in the growth of plants giving plants more nitrogen then they need will not help keep the fertilizers to plants in soil

    Was that a paper towel you wrapped the roots in? ALso, can you add Miracle-Gro to the water, or would the chemicals damage the filter/tank/caulk ???

    brilliant idea to have floating styrofoam. styrofoam is also rather anti-bacterial/fungal i think since they use those containers to put cheese jugs in to ferment.

    It takes about a good month before the nitrogen cycle will be complete. Afterward, treating it like a fish tank should help pretty darn well for the plants.

    Like another user said, a reservoir below is another good way of doing it. Using a pond pump and timers to spray the plants every 15 minutes or however much they need to be watered. Lights on a timer too, makes everything much much easier and smooth.

    Awesome vid, nice setup! Take care….

    For all those still wondering, you can do a setup like this with fish. Most fish really don’t physically need light, however if you are going to cover the entire tank there is no need to put fish in the tank at all. If you leave the tank open you should install flour. lights above your plans to simulate the season. 18 hours during spring time, 12 towards fall seems to be pretty good. If you add fish and treat it as a fish tank, it will go through the nitrogen cycle, eliminating extra nutrients.

    how offten do you put nutrients in the tank? Do you leave the pump on all the time, like an areo garden? how long from seed does it take for the seedlings to grow? If anyone knows let me know……I’m just new to this.

    for anyone who plans to build this i would suggest using aluminum foil TAPE to cover it (not foil itself) because it will reflect some of the light off the tank and not interfere with the current temp of the water. Also, fish do need light to survive. How much i dont know but they do need it.
