DIY Hydroponics: How to build a Hydroponics system with Plastic Bottles for Balcony Garden (2020)

Hello Friends, Let us learn how to setup Hydroponics At Home Using Plastic Bottles. In simple, Hydroponics is growing plants without soil. Hydroponics replaces the use of traditional growth mediums like soil with a nutrient and mineral-rich water solution. Plants are grown with their roots in an inert medium. Growth mediums includes perlite, rockwool, coconut husk, rocks, cocopeat, sponge, foam, clay pellets, coconut fiber/coconut chips, or vermiculite. The key is you keep the roots exposed to a nutrient rich water solution.

You can grow Lettuce,Spinach,Strawberries,Bell Peppers,Herbs. You may also try tomato and egg plants too. Leafy greens like lettuce are the most profitable crops to grow in hydroponic systems. With the professional setup and nutrient balance, you can grow any plant hydroponically.

Do-it-yourself hydroponic systems come in different forms. You can build one using different locally-available materials such as recyclable plastic bottles, containers, boxes and even PVC pipes. Here we are discussing unit designed using recyclable plastic PET bottles.

For this DIY Hydroponics, we will need the below materials that will be available mostly at home:

1. Empty 2 litre bottles
2. Sponge or any planting medium
3. Plastic Cups for Net cups (Use and throw cups)
4. Marker
5. Water
6. Hydroponic solution
7. Seeds of your choice (I’m using groundnut in this video)
8. Hot Glue

The Hydroponic solution combines of primary nutrients like nitrogen, potassium, magnesium; secondary nutrients like calcium, sulphur, phosphorus; and micronutrients like iron, copper, manganese, zinc, molybdenum, boron.

    Genius idea sir! You say to replace solution (water) weekly.. How do you do it? Remove 1st the cups, then pour out old water then refill with new water then replace cups?

    How to change water



  24. Sakthisri on August 31, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    How many litre water bottle is this



  25. Norberto Mangunay on August 31, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    i think you should at least put an airpump at this set up. If not it may cause some problems to the roots of the plant. it will grow at the start but later on it will cause some problems.



  26. iERA Study matters on August 31, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    Which plants are these??



  27. Caleb Malison on August 31, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    Ilan pong ml ng water and nutrient solution (if gagamitin na N.Solution is SNAP SOLUTION or Yamasaki solution) ang kailangan ipagsama if ganyan po ang gagawin na setup?



  28. karthick b on August 31, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    you just need NPK solution and you will do far more better i think



  29. chiemeka hope on August 31, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    Can I put different plants in this system? Or does it have to be one kind only?



  30. biswajit Jena on August 31, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    Real example utilise plastic waste

    Ok so with hydroponics if I just planted this cup into a bigger bucket would it continue growing but just into the soil
