    and I expect that you will with these Without a control I will be wondering how much is down to the air pot I have a sneaking suspicion that there won t be as much benefit from the air pot if you re introducing the SWP element I suspect that once the plant s roots find the wick that becomes the dominant factor Once the roots are in the reservoir it becomes a version of DWC or Kratky that s providing the plant s primary nutrition It ll be interesting to see Did you find a good price for the pots They ve always seemed expensive to me from occasional trawling ebay Also I assume they come flat packed I ll be interested to know how easy they are to put together Top dennish Chilli Guru Posts 1776 Joined Wed Apr 06 2011 10 41 am Location East Riding of Yorkshire Re Self Watering Air Pots Quote Post by dennish Sat Apr 09 2016 8 16 pm ChilliJez wrote dennish wrote I ve just ordered a couple of 15l Air Pots to play around with this year has anyone used them I m planning on turning them into Self Watering Air Pots SWAPs and hoping the fusion of the two systems will bring exciting results And yes one of them will house one of my Big Jim s to produce the world s largest vegetable I ll be watching with interest Dennis I ve been aware of them for some time and was considering much smaller ones for my grow this year One question will you be running a conventional 15 litre pot alongside as a control I m used to your achieving exceptional results and I expect that you will with these Without a control I will be wondering

    06 pm Location South Cheshire or Peckham Re Growing boxes Quote Post by ChilliJez Wed Feb 03 2016 6 31 pm Thanks for the observations SiBorg I definitely appreciate advice and ideas As a skilled electrical person you will be appalled OMG etc A sheet of 1 4 ish ply glued to the 50mm jablite sheet 54mm holes in the jablite and 1 holes for the GU10 bulb holders Bulb holders epoxyed into the ply Rougly 6mm minimum clearance between bulb and polystyrene I d already bought the diamond sheet so I ll use it It hasn t yet been sealed in position behind the bulbs in this pic I was going to have the lights moveable and then I was hoping the reflective coating would be reflective enough that it wouldn t make a difference I can snap it out and hang it from a chain That shouldn t be an issue I don t understand how convection would work but I d love to I d certainly like the heat from those lights to work in my favour Since you raised it I have thought about siting the airpump on top of the roof lights If I put the airpump in an enclosed space above the lights and drilled around the bulbholders into the airspace directly behind the bulbs it would draw cooling air from the growing chamber over the bulbs cooling them and warming the air That warmed air would be bubbled through the nutrient solution That may be too complicated Can you explain where I d put the slots for convection to work Thanks Man you don t know what you ve let yourself in for Eventually you ll hold your hands up and say NO MORE QUESTIONS Thank you Top ChilliJez Chilli Guru Posts 2496 Joined Sun Jan 16 2011 5 06 pm

ve made some progress thanks I cut out the polystyrene around the LEDs As you say a bonfire wouldn t be good I made an insulated box around the top to contain the airpump and I drilled around the bulb holders to draw air It s not as refined as your suggestion and the lid isn t moveable but I wanted to set it working Your other suggestions will get incorporated into version 2 The res is propped up to a height where the nutrient solution just touches the base of the net pot The plant is a particularly scrawny Moruga Yellow needing life breathing into it The thermometer sensor is suspended at plant height and 20 1C is about where I want it to be so I m happy There s an aquarium heater in the res set to 10C I ll take it away in due course to see if it s actually doing anything Top Heefy Chilli Guru Posts 3433 Joined Tue Jul 09 2013 5 37 pm Location Cambridgeshire Lincolnshire border England Contact Contact Heefy Website Re Growing boxes Quote Post by Heefy Tue Feb 09 2016 4 19 pm It looks very goods good Great to see the set up finished So the net pot sits in the foam and extends through it into a nutrient reservoir with a heater and an air pump Is that right Sounds like a winning combination What ventilation fans do you have Top ChilliJez Chilli Guru Posts 2496 Joined Sun Jan 16 2011

  • My first DIY, opinions appreciated! - Chillis Galore Forums
    cut in halfish and folded so the water falls into the bottle hits the fold and then slides at a shallow angle into the soil I ll keep that in mind with the extra holes I glued some cloth to the other side of the plug and then put one of the cut pieces of pot up against it to try and stop soil clogging it but I ll keep an eye on it Top ChilliJez Chilli Guru Posts 2496 Joined Sun Jan 16 2011 5 06 pm Location South Cheshire or Peckham Re My first DIY opinions appreciated Quote Post by ChilliJez Sat Mar 19 2016 10 39 am Hi Rosh I like the idea and I think it has good potential Whether it works or not in my view is down to how much free draining space you ve got in the base If you have only just enough and the compost is close to the level of the drain then you ll be starving the roots of oxygen as David says If you ve got lots of stuff in the base polystyrene broken into about 1cm pieces works well so that it s filled to 3 or 4 cm above the drain would be good Then you could block the drain when you want to water fill so that it s really getting up into the compost I m thinking half way up the pot This will help to push stale air out of the compost After a half hour let it drain and fresh air will be drawn into the compost as it drains and also through the bottle into the air space below Below the drain you ll have a little reservoir that the roots will find their way into It s kinda like an all in one swp I hope that makes sense Good luck Top Rosh Chilli Head Posts 80 Joined Mon Jun 22 2015 11 18 pm Location Surrey Re RE Re My first DIY opinions appreciated Quote Post by Rosh Sat Mar 19 2016 1 19 pm ChilliJez wrote Hi Rosh I like the idea and I think it has good potential Whether it works or not in my view is down to how much free draining space you ve got in the base If you have only just enough and the compost is close to the level of the drain then you ll be starving the roots of oxygen as David says If you ve got lots of stuff in the base polystyrene broken into about 1cm pieces works well so that it s filled to 3 or 4 cm above the drain would be good Then you could block the drain when you want to water fill so that it s really getting up into the compost I m thinking half way up the pot This will help to push stale air out of the compost After a half hour let it drain and fresh air will be drawn
