Join Urban Leaf’s Dr. Rob for a review of 4 popular hydroponics systems side by side, and a discussion of the results and lessons learned along the way. Learn more about Urban Leaf here: To replicate this experiment, you will need: ~ Misc. Parts ~ – Plastic Totes: these are large volume / low weight. They’ll be much cheaper at Home Depot / Walmart than online. – Net Cups: – Rockwool: – Clay Pebbles: – Mechanical Timers: – Lighting Rack: ~ Drip System ~ – Clay Pebbles: (the bag above is pretty small. Look for a bigger one if you want to do this setup as you’ll need a lot) – Water Pump: – 3/4 Irrigation Hose: – 1/4 Dripper Hose: – Barbed Coupling: – Adjustable Dripper: ~ DWC System ~ – Air pump: – Air stone: – Air tube: ~ Aeroponics / Fog System ~ – Ultrasonic mister: ~ Soil System ~ – Potting Mix: Got questions?

    Using a fogger or a Micro Bubbler/bubbler in the Kratky method would probably be the best over all. Growth, Cost, Simplicity.

    Nice comparison. It would also be nice to see a side-by-side comparison of two Aeroponic systems – one using an ultrasonic fogger/dry fog, and one using a nozzle/high-pressure pump, to assess whether droplet size affects yield etc.
