A hydroponic system is another way to grow plants. It was very fun to do it cost me about $100. You could do it for about $75 or less because I bought my stuff in bulk.

First, put your pump on the bottom of the storage container. Second, cut off 5 feet of the 1/2 inch tubing and just keep it inside the container for now. Third, cut a hole in the lid by the edge on one side. The hole should be a little bigger than a 1/2 inch. Use a 3/4 inch drill bit. Then, run the tube through the hole and use the T and connect it to the bottom of the T. Let it just rest their for now. Lay the 4 angles in every corner. Then cut off a section that is from the T to the angle that is next to it and keep cutting off sections and connecting them so it makes a square using the angles.

Step 4: Add The 1/4 Inch Line
