Basic kit

The development is currently in alpha, but you can of course try it out.

Introduction

The goal of this repository is to contain all the information needed to get, build and run an high pressure aeroponics. The idea is to design a cheap modular system that anyone can use at home for sustainable food production.

Small and modular DIY kit

Using a small and modular DIY kit can be very useful for growing herbs or other small plants you prefer. The parts cost around USD 57 (SEK 500) and to run the basic kit in the window costs about USD 0.11 (SEK 1) per month. If you, like me, live in Sweden and need some extra light during winter, you can use LEDs which can cost you USD 1 (SEK 9) per month - a price example of using LEDs from IKEA.

How to get

Go to the wiki and look under the small and modular DIY kit section.

How to build

Follow the guide in google photos. If you have any questions or need help, you can just comment in the album.

How to run

In short: mix 10g of nutrients into 4L of water and add it to the vases. Then, you add about 4L of water a week to the vase and once a month you instead add 4L of the same nutrient mix as before. Here is an album that I add pictures to as I’m using it.

Large and modular DIY kit

Using a large and modular DIY kit can be very useful for growing most plants that you prefer, this is what you should use for sustainable food production.

Join our slack by sending me a message and I’ll send you an invitation! There have been a lot of different components that have been tested to make these DIY kits, you can find a list of materials for what has been tested. If you think something should be changed with the kits, then get in contact with me and we can update the kits!
