Do you have a homemade hydroponics system?

Hello everyone. I just joined the club. My question is this. I am planning on making a homemade hydroponics system with a 10 gallon aqarium. Basically the system consists of an aquarium with the nutrients in the bottom and burlap on the top holding the growing medium and a pump for aeration. I am planning on trying tomato plants in this system. Has anybody tried this or would I be better off purchasing a small commercial system?

Hey Ron I want to make a seedling/clone box. Its 1' by 2' and 2ft high. A 24" 2 bulb florescent fixture fits perfect in the box. I intend on putting my 10" by 20" seedling/clone tray in there.

Is that enough lighting for this setup? Or should I put 2 24" 2 bulb fixtures (4bulbs)?

Also, do i cover mylar all around the box?

I can vent the box out easily too, so that's not a prob.


4 is better than 2 and I would use mylar if you go with just 2 bulbs. 

Do I have to use aerator or pump to supply oxygen if greenhouse is outdoor?

It helps indoors or out.

How do I make an inexpensive NFT system, I see one on the site but can't seem to find any plans for them. Also where can I get supplies in my area inexpensivly, net pots alone run about a dollar or more each around here, not to mention expanded clay.

why do plants grow faster in only wter than in the ground
