Part one of how to build an aeroponics tower. This is built using cheap food grade components with a focus on using materials that are easily sourced or recycled. Aeroponics uses small droplets of water and hydroponic nutrient mixed with air to maximise quantity and yield in a small area. Ideal for balcony/patio gardens, indoor or outside. Part 2 coming soon.

    Just a tip if you're interested. If you run your drill in reverse, it leaves a lot cleaner hole in the plastic drum. A lot less sanding. Great video.

    I'm in the states and I'm trying to put together one of these grow towers. Unfortunately, a plumber I am not. I am trying to find commensurate components for the 13mm poly pipe and I can't seem to (probably because I think it's something other than what it is). Obviously 1/2" should do, however, is all the poly pipe in that size flexible – I mostly am able to just find it in rolls, but it appears from the video that the batch you have is at least somewhat rigid. Any help would be tremendously appreciated. This is what I keep running into:

    Also about the misting heads. Are those just T-jointed into the interior pipe?

    Thanks so much for the video!

    Won't the plants weigh down the elbows pretty bad as they grow?

    I wouldn't put a cap on the open holes or at least not all the holes. I'm not a scientist or anything but I think the reason aeroponic plants go so fast is the roots' access to fresh air. While too many holes could cause more water loss or possibly dry out the roots too quickly if a pump breaks, but I would also think more holes would increase the effectiveness of the system.

    Brilliant system to me….any kind of misting inside is well enough…..they don't need to DROWN in water solution….as long as they are getting a misting….that is more than sufficient. Love this system. I am with ya….can't wait to see it in FULL GROWTH….and YES…you answered your own question about CAPPING off unused albows. Saving them for additional or staggered planting intervals…..atleast you have the choice of using more openings. Nice set up.
    THanks for sharing and good luck
