At the beginning of the summer semester, we were assigned a project to create a hydroponics gardening system following a list of guidelines. We first read them over and researched more about hydroponics and the different systems. After researching the different systems and plants, we determined we would create a drip system and grow mesclun (a type of lettuce). The drip system is a system used to continuously water the plant with the use of a reservoir, water pump, and timer. Once the research was completed, we developed different designs for our system and using PVC tubing, screws, mesh fence, a fish tank, a water pump, and a timer, we created our hydroponics drip system. The water is pumped up the PVC tubing and passes out over the plants with holes drilled evenly across the tubing. The left over nutrients are directed back into the fish tank (reservoir). The screws were inserted in the holes across the tubing to create the dripping water. We then chose to plant our mesclun in Rockwool to help with the growth, and the dripping system keeps the Rockwool and plants watered. Finally, to keep light out of the nutrient solution, we wrapped our fish tank with wood grain shelf lining. Our project was successfully completed on Thursday, May 19, 2011, and observations have been started. The starting pH was about 6.5, where it should be to grow mesclun, and the nutrients that we used was Hydro-Gro nutrient solution.
