Start your very first miniature hydroponic plant! A recommended guide for beginners who both loves planting and technology. I'm going to show you how to make one in less than 15 minutes, out of household materials! Our tiny "Hydroponic System" kinda cost us $5-7.
Since our goal is to make this eco-friendly we hooked it to my 3W solar panel + powerbank, similar to my "Portable Solar Charger
" guide. This guide is great for school projects such as: science fair and investigatory projects
Our Investigatory Project (GRADE 8 - IP):
Originally this project was documented for our "Investigatory Project" last year, about: "The Feasibility Of Growing Crops In A Hydroponic System" Our . I.P. was quite a success, caught some attention and got the highest grade in class. So the problem goes like this:
Today’s rapid growth of human population causes the lack of available space for crop agriculture. The traditional method for planting crops requires labor intensive methods such as: tilling lands, watering crops on a daily basis, using unhealthy pesticides, fumigating the crops. Scientists say that “vertical farming” is the future of plant agriculture, although soil is very hard to transport, especially in tall building. Hydroponics is done to have better control of the nutrients being absorbed by the plants and makes planting on rooftops more convenient and easier
Recommended Seeds/ Plants:
- Tomato Seeds/ Plant
- Mung Beans/ Plant (We used this one)
- Chili Pepper- Bell Pepper
