Unfortunately, not really built yet, the newborn has been the priority and bills before.

that picture-pump sprayer is where the "manual" part comes into play, when i could spray the tote/roots every 10 mins or so they started to develop nice fuzzy roots, it creates a pretty fine mist, although im not sure how small the droplet size is, the growth was pretty fast.

ive planned on integrating 6- 20-60micronmist nozzles, 3 on each side, and 2 "bar-style" airstones for the bottom/hydro part.
cut holes for the nozzles/water tubes(?) etc.
get an appropriate size water pump or two, pretty much need 2 of everything when running aero setups, if something fails youre plant could be fucked in hours.

the tote is 55qt, 6$ from Walmart, sprayer is 6$, still trying to find the bio-control nozzles.

the first AeroTote#1 was 6 holes,6 plants-3 on each side, this one ((AeroTote#2)) is 5 holes 5 plants.

5th being in the middle, figure 5 would be better because once TAE is achieved, the roots explode, and run out of room for the cotton candy roots.

I’ve actually pruned these roots a little, and burned some playing around with pool shock dosage. Lol

My bad for the late response, got busy topfilling the seedling solos

I’m about out of beans, 10~ left I think, gonna create some more and I think someone here put some in the mail for me, excited as hell for those.

The middle is a unknown vigorous mother clone

The 4 are 2 strains I cultivated from 3 other unknown plants, they actually seemed worthy to keep, so i read up on breeding, pretty simple natural process haha.

2 females - 1 dad
Also, an accumulator tank for consistent constant pressure, and of course a 24hour or whatever timer, that allows for “3minutes off 30 seconds on” type timer.

I'm liking that setup, I may stop by Wally World when I get off work and grab a few totes to start designing one myself. I got a some extra Ethos(Regs) Runtz and GMO beans if ya want to experiment and Pheno hunt with some of those, just shoot me a addy to send and it's in the mail
you can’t go wrong with it honestly, in this context. it’s a super easy cheap way to get into an aero type environment, then go from there modding/improving it.

I love the totes they are cheap, if you fuck up the holes, it’s just 6 bucks and you still have a tote for mixing mediums and stuff.

only problem is they are clear, algae can become a problem but there’s solutions, cover the pots, wrap the tote, fungicides, beneficial microbes, pool shock- is essentially “clear-res” etc, and my plants got too big, so growing smaller ones this time.


My first grow journal for this type of growing is on here, has more pictures and stuff lol


i just drew a circle around solo cups and used a knife to cut em out.

Also

The fact that the cup is in coco, will hold some water, and I did have a plants roots grow to the bottom, so can use the bottom as a res and can be more forgiving once the hydro part/roots are established.

So idk I’m still playing around with it, pretty coo little setup, fast turn around once achieved properly

I love it

Only a partially related update.

The red ones are Red Bruce. The other colors are black Domina.

The mister is on a 2sec on 3sec off interval.
There's 2 24" t8 lights up top.

I spritz them with water a few times a day. I just started today so that's an overstatement.

Are these lights suitable?

I'll show you what I sis to the Domina tomorrow. It's lights out right now. I forgot to take pictures.

Red Bruce moves out tomorrow. 😐😐

Also, what's the point of the rooting hormones if the sprayer just washed it off? Does it soak on immediately and anything else is unused?

minor changes on the Rockwools, It was brought to my attention that promix and rockwool won't work and i should use coco. Since i didn't have any Coco i decided to put some pebbles. I also gave a round of water to all the plants. The wedding cake in the solo cup got a bit of more soil added to it. That should stable the long stem a bit more until transplant.

Going so much better this time, eh?
