    Why do you call it "Earth Garden" Design?  Do you use soil in the cups?

  • Alechia Neathery 1 year ago

    Do you have a video on how you did the two garden one was with plastic bottle and the other was the plastic pipe?

    What's the cost to run it?

  • Sheds Direct 1 year ago

    Wow! Simple but really amazing. I saw a type of these design in a supermarket section to preserve some herbs/fresh plants but I never seen such design that is actually located at home. I found it very interesting and I am planning to build one for me as an experiment.

    very good idea, it covers a lot of floor space

    I actually hooked it up threw the aquaponics and it runs by solar -some design flaws on it not using the 4 inch pipe so used as a seed starter

  • Lee Owen 1 year ago

    how's it doing? do you let it run 24/7?

  • Scott Johnson 1 year ago

    The 4 inch pipe is best it creates better water flow – the roots will grow down the pipe if you hdyro test your water often aqua let the fish do all the work

  • Brad Burkman 1 year ago

    Isn't the water flowing down the pipes very shallow? I'm imagining it flowing at a high rate but only 3/8" deep or so. Is that ok? I'm a rookie here by the way.

    it was a learning experience I have posted other comments to what the next design would look like

  • UsedHydroShop 1 year ago

    I threw away those pipes cuz I could not figure out how to put it on a table. I guess I should have searched your vid sooner.

    A video on constructing that water butt would be great 🙂 It looks great and practical. Could you let me know how you have the water pump setup please. I am hoping to make a garden and the water pump seems to be the hurdle at the moment. I have been considering the Hailea HX-4500 which runs up to 2000 lph with a head of 2.3m. I didnt know if 2000 lph was iverkill though.

    I built it myself – a few trips to home depot and a little online shopping

  • skibtzer 1 year ago

    I mean horizontal water butt!!! 🙂

  • skibtzer 1 year ago

    Great system. Where did you get the vertical water butt?

  • Scott Johnson 1 year ago

    I have it set on a timer and it shuts off at dusk

  • Professor Chlorophyll 1 year ago

    does this pump run constantly OR set on a timer for 3 feeding cycles per day?

  • Scott Johnson 1 year ago

    I might not get to video today
    – 4 inch pipe increases better water flow
    – 5in net cups
    – The angle is fine
    – Reservoir 1 gallon per plant
    – I placed too many on 1 tube and to close
    – I use timer dusk till dawn till dusk
    – The pump needs to able to push water 6- 8 ft
