How's this for a strawberry plantation? Our customer writes:
"Thought you guys and gals would like to see my version of long term plant management Aeroponic Gardening.
Each tube is lose at bottom for occasional root trimming. All "nuts" run back to reservoir in the 5 minute off time and delivered at 70 deg. each time. The 1/4" black feeder tubes get hot, but "nuts" pass through so quickly they don't absorb any heat. May have to add a cooler this Hot Texas summer.
Both sides feed at same time. All plants on both sides have One square foot of room. The leaves are Allstar at 1 week. Ozark Beauties on the X side are 1 day.
The X side is my first design and built straight side to have a comparison of growth. We will tag mix the plants up at a month to be accurate. Love the single tube on the X side that cradles the "nuts" feeder line. At under 8' one person can move it around easily. 12 plant system.
Still waiting on brother-in-law the electrician to get wiring cleaned up, but wanted you to see.
Everything, pumps, PVC, reservoir, DRT-1 timer complete system just over $300.00. The complete 32 unit system with 700 gph pump $400.00. Picked up radio at pawn shop for $25.00, entertain the plants! All PVC we got at a plumbing supply outlet for less than 1/2 the Homer price.
All theory and much to learn.
You guys have been great... !"
