Hydroponic to wer with 24 grow pods and a visual water fountain. Hydroponic fun Tough Guy 24 Pod Tower. The tough guy is rugged and friendly to use. It really works growing just about anything that has roots. The tower has just a few parts.
A tough 5-gallon pail, About 42 inches tall overall the tower made from 6-inch pipe with 24 grow pods mounted slanting down, screwed in place with a stainless steel screw that protrudes into the root area. Trapping your planting in place as it grows around it. The grow pods are sealed to the tower ensuring that the nutrient/water flow is contained within the tower recirculating into the pail.
Start from seeds foam blocks or better and much quicker, plant small seedlings with roots exposed and mostly washed off. Seedlings will grow with almost 100% success. Plant by splitting the provided foam block around the plant stem above the roots and stuff it in a grow pod. At least a full season, is supplied. A couple tablespoons or less per gallon of water is stored in the pail.
It will last several days in moderate weather. Tomatoes drink a lot and in hot weather will need a little more attention. A high-quality pump with only one moving part is provided.Let the pump run continuously or turn off at night. Providing a constant visual aerated nutrient fountain to drizzle down inside the tower feeding the roots uniformly throughout the tower. The adjustable flow pump is filtered and is readily accessed by lifting the tower from the pail support collar, even when it has a season of growth.
Roots can be trimmed as the plants grow by lifting the tower out of the pail support collar. My fully grown tower got so heavy with growth I used a rope and pulley to lift it to trim the roots. See the attached pictures of a grown from seed sunflower surrounded with peppers, squash, herbs, and tomatoes at the base. Even a Mellon rests on the base area. A word of caution: Please take precautions about water occasionally dripping or minor splashing from the pail if you plan to keep it indoors.
