  Have you ever needed a way to water those plants when you are away on vacation? Or have you ever just wanted to mess around with hydroponics? Well look at what my mad scientist neighbor did here! My friend Jason and his hydroponics are amazing! He has such a talent for these types of things and I wanted to share this one with you, so that maybe it would strike up the creative juices.

It is amazing how this thing works, very smart feller if I may say so! Here below is a drawing of how he put it together! He said he just used a cheap pump and trash can!
Front view, after 2 weeks!

I hope you experiment with this and let us know how it goes! You may have some ideas of improvement! He told me this would be an awesome way to water your plants when you are on vacation. Wait a minute that may be why he showed this to me and brought that up! I do ask him to water my plants sometimes when we go out of town, lol! No, we would do that for each other anytime, I think! LOL!

  1. Hydroponics and aquaponics have been on my to do list this year. It's great to see how someone else set their system up. Thanks for showing it.

  2. This seems like something that needs to be mass distributed. I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

    Happy seeing beautiful!
