How are you planning to incorperate aeroponics into your system? Ive been growing tomatoes using aeroponics for my thesis and they grew amazing. The biomass was around 75% higher than plants grown in perlite under the same conditions and the roots looked amazing.

I wanted to incorperated it into my aquaponics system. Problem is the misting apparatus clogs up very easily. So I decided to just go with a NFT system. I am curious to see if you can make it work.

Granted it may be a challenge saying that the aeroponics will be 40 feet away and I am using the waste from the swirl filter that is heavily filtered through earth beds then its fed to the glass[hot ]house to a dedicated sump where I can add extra nutrients if needed
First up is the heated wicking bed
Then the autopots
Aeroponics is last on the list

Milne, let me see if I can work this out. So are you using a fan to push the warm air from the green house through the PVC pipe to heat the sand(thermal mass) and then passing cold water through this to get hot water? What is the hot water then used for?

No you got it wrong hot air rigfht
Water pipes come from a container sitting top of a gas heater additional heat if needed other wise the warn water is just there for humidity

Nice setup Milne :headbang: . The faster warming and heat retention is one of the best things about wicking beds. The AP is slow starting in the spring but the wicking beds aren't. They make a good combo :thumbright: .

Nice one if you can get early in on the season, Milne. My tommies are still going here in the sub-tropics.

That wicking bed is a wiked good idea.
It looks like the mice chewed a hole into the pond liner of the wicking bed I have in my green house.
It was already there before I built the green house.
Since I have to fix the hole, take the dirt out etc. , I might as well built something like you did.
I could hook the warm water into the floor heating system of the wintergarden.

Now you got me thinking :mrgreen:
