Added by on 2016-09-28 This is my first attempt at building my own Hydroponics growing system. So far it works great! I chose the Ebb and Flow because It appeared to be one of the simplest to build. This is constructed mostly of things I had around the house. A used laundry detergent bucket, well washed of course. A Ziploc disposable food container. Aquarium air pump. Tabletop fountain water pump. I had to purchase one foot of tubing, Hydroton pellets, and Net Pots from a Hydroponics store. It was actually fairly easy to build but if you wish for me to explain exactly how I built it, just ask in my comments section. If there is enough interest, I will make video about the construction. Video Rating: / 5 Exhale C02 Bag’s on our website The Grow Home Hydroponics is proud to stock the Exhale cO2 Generator! The bags work through photosynthesis, photosynthesis is the process by which plant leaves make carbohydrates. Sunlight, cO2 and water are converted into carbohydrates and cO2 by the action of chlorophyll in the chloroplasts of the plant. Plants growing indoors under artificial light often lack enough cO2 to efficiently photosynthesize.When plants are able to maximize the process of photosynthesis, the result is larger plants with larger yields. ExHale cultivates CO2 24 hours a day with no need to refill bottles or use expensive CO2 production units.

    Please make a tutorial on how to make this. I only have limited space and all the other once I seen are to big. Thanks or a reply would be nice.

    @FenderGibsonWashburn Silver emergency blankets for a dollar at the Dollar Store 🙂

    @coal4life Big ups to the guerilla ganja man, growing your own meds is the way to go. And no doubt it was a zionist hatched inside job. Best wishes. Smokin good….

    @HomebrewCigarSmoker1 You are in good company. A You Tube friend of mine rwkleinman is a fan of using bus tubs also. He was building hydroponic systems back when you and I were still in elementary school. 🙂 

  • HomebrewCigarSmoker1 1 year ago

    I use bus tubs for both. medium and reservoir.

    I'm motivated, i didn't realize it was that easy. i know it takes a few times to get it right but something from nothing is always something great to me !!

  • FenderGibsonWashburn 1 year ago

    @coal4life Sounds like an excellent plan to me. I know the exact tub you are talking about because I was looking it over too. Those emergency blankets are just thinner, I don't see why they wouldn't work the same. Remember to use plastic tape, not duct tape unless it's the aluminum stuff. Check your local Craig's list for used industrial Metal Halide lights. I've seen them as cheep as $20 for 400 watts. For that price you could afford a HPS converter bulb also. Have fun! 🙂

    Been thinking bout getting a cement mixing tray from Home Depot and ordering a fill and drain fitting kit from pchydrodotcom along with a submersible pump and a timer. Low buck and easy to build. Some emergency blankets on the walls and getting over the large coin for a good light, a poor man can get his meds for the matrix reality that's puttin' the hurt on all of us. 9/11 was an inside job.

    @gorskibot You are on the right track. 5 gallon buckets work great for hydroponics, as reservoirs and as containers for the plants. The heavy duty Rubber maid totes work well too. The problem they have is the large ones tend to warp from the weight of the water. Another great container is old plastic coolers. Some times you can find them at garage sales pretty cheap. Also you can build containers out of wood and line them with a layer or two of heavy duty plastic. 

  • FenderGibsonWashburn 1 year ago

    @gorskibot Good observation. This is the first system I ever built so I was still learning. Matter of fact I'm still learning now. lol Yes that would be the way to do it properly. It's much easier with heavier plastic and proper connectors but this is for someone who may not have the money or the ability to make such a connection. If you design a better way that uses common available parts I would love to hear about it. Thanks for the question. 🙂

    @fearloathing420 About 5 minutes is usually plenty of time but the best you can hope for with inexpensive timers is 15 minutes. The grow media, humidity, temperature, and the plant itself determines the frequency.

    @jcgtv2 I have another video that explains what is going on here watch?v=tAzxwpgnVhc and not so much redneck music.

  • FenderGibsonWashburn 1 year ago

    @zcarporn This was just a tiny pump from a table top fountain. I think around 80 GPH. It works out to be 1.33 gpm.

  • Andrew Bobbin 1 year ago

    @FenderGibsonWashburn the idea of this system is to miminise root growth so the rotts dont search for water as the pellests in the nets hold water.. and for roots drying out! have no holes in the bottom drilled and lower the inlet so about and inch of water sits in the bottom of your system all the time.. but make sure air gets to the roots too

  • FenderGibsonWashburn 1 year ago

    @MrSamNC Thanks, I like to reuse items in my systems whenever I can. As long as the plants don't wilt between cycles all is good. I guess it's something about the cycles that promote the plant to grow. It makes the roots seek out water and therefore grow longer. That's my understanding anyway. 

  • MrSam 1 year ago

    Great way to recycle products! My only concern is with using net pots on an ebb and flow. The roots will tend to dry out in between ebb cycles. Other than that, great!
