I've wanted to try hydroponics for a while but i lack space for a full setup, after googling a lot i decided on trying Aeroponics.
I ended up purchasing an "Aero-pot Portable aeroponic heated propagator" from Happy-hydroponics on ebay http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Happy-Hydroponics
I purchased 2 aero-pots as a friends wanted one too, this instructable contains the unpacking of the packages that arrived with 2 aero-pots, and the general setup.
I've published it so it's available for all, i will update once I've got used to using it.
Step 1: Unpacking
The box contained
2x Aero-pot buckets (5 Litre bucket Approx Dimensions: 226mm (dia. top), 198mm (dia. bottom), 193mm (height))
2x 8 hole aero-pot lid
2x Bag of bits
Step 2: Bag of bits
260g clay pebbles
24v 1A UK AD/DC power adaptor
Zinc Alloy Mist maker and instructions
Aero-pot Instruction sheet
Step 3: Mist maker setup
I put the mist maker in the pot making sure the white ceramic atomising disc is facing up.
I threaded the mist makers power cable through the hole in the side of the aero-pot.
Then pushed the bung in the side so it was water tight.
Now i filled the bucket with about 2 litres of water until the mist maker has 2.5- 3.5cm of water above it.
I adjusted the position of the mist maker so that it's in the centre of the bottom of the aero-pot bucket.
Step 4: Switching On
it should start to mist, leave it on while you do the next steps.
Step 5: Final setup
Unplug the mist maker
Fit the aero-pot lid on to the bucket.
Put the mesh pots in the holes
Plug the mist maker back in and you should hear it.
Put the dome on the top
