This is the final update of the low pressure aeroponics system that I made for 2017. The plant I grew was a Helios Habanero. You can see the build video here:

The one I made for 2016 is here:

Low pressure aeroponics system 2017 – Final update

    Peter, that was very informative. Perhaps I'll go with an arrangement like dutch bucket with a reservoir to check the quality of water and doing away the flood and drain arrangement. I intend to keep three sprouts in each bucket . Pump size will have to be changed. Thank you so much for giving the video and all the later updates.

    Experimental hydroponics are fascinating, and you did excellent with your low pressure aeroponics system!  With the upper spray chamber and lower highly-aerated circulation chamber, you seem to have addressed fast early growth and the ability to later feed large plants.  Overall, your hybrid hydroponics method is very impressive.

    Thank you so much Peter for sharing, amazingly crazy results. I was hoping you can she some light on how were you feeding the plant and the nutrients used in this project, I am planning to copy it for next season.
    Thanks again

    I enjoyed watching this project from start to finish Peter. I built an aeroponic cloner earlier this year in a big tote and it's amazing how well plants grow that way. I was thinking of making a version of your aeroponic bucket system,but in a 55 gallon drum and see if the jumbo size makes any difference.

    I wonder why the root ball is so big and involved. one would think that the reason a plant puts out more roots generally is to capture more water and nutrients,. but this way of growing gives the plant more than what it should need, so why such a root system, could it be that plant was not getting what it needs?
