This is part one of the grow tower build of my Aquaponics grow tower. This goes thru the prep and how to’s to start your grow tower. In the next video, I will show the assembled product. UPDATE: Scratch the glue stick… they started to fall off in the heat. I ended up tacking them on with plastic epoxy in 4 spots (small amount just to hold it on) at positions on the clock of 12, 3, 6 and 9 and then sealed it up with silicone that you would use for the kitchen and that seemed to work well.

    The plant holders are closely spaced, did you try growing bigger plants like lettuce or pak choy/bok choy? How did they turn out?

    I thought  you could speed things up with the holes if you used a chalk line, snapped a line down the middle of the side of the pipe, then mark the center of one of your cut pieces, and line it up with the chalk line however many inches apart you placed them. Then use a marker or pencil inside the piece to mark the hole. It seems easier than the multiple steps you had to do with copying, cutting, gluing, cutting, etc.  I also wanted to know how tall your netpots are. You said they were taller, but an exact measurement to shop with would be helpful.

    Well done. What does it work like – do they leak at all using the glue ?

    Looking good so far.  Please post more videos as you progress.  There are too many videos out there of people starting these and never showing a finished working system.
