    Aquarium Mini Grow

    Had a small hexagon kid's aquarium hanging around.

    12/12 from seed in rockwool.
    Once I saw a root, I put this together.



    Drakensburg Gold (Malberry)




    I used this small air pump in a small wide mouth masson jar
    POPETPOP Air Pump Aquarium USB Air Pump Ultra Silent


    a Keurig cup for the net pot.


    a 40mm knockout punch to cut a hole in the masson jar lid.
    (this here is a 30mm, but I used a 40mm for a perfect fit)


    and a sheet metal punch and grommet for the air line

    Now all I have to do is wait.

    Sorry, is there a mason jar under the lid? Like with the net cup in it? If so, what is the all the moss stuff for?
    You may not vote on any more threads today.
    Don't sweat the technique.
    And honestly. My fuck ups turn to gold so much the thought of fuckin up don't even bother me. So I keep it auto when I'm stepping through a portal. I know that sounds strange but, strange beats normal.

      Yes there is. It's a small jar filled to the bottom of the net cup. I didn't want to fill the whole aquarium with hydroton and water because I want to control the plant size. Expect some bonsai jitsu on it.

      As for the moss, it's supposed to be ornamental. Lol

      I'll take more pictures when I get home.

        Do you have an idea how big that Sativa Landrace will grow?

        Better get a shark tank.

          Lmao... the jar is 500ml/16oz.

          I have an 8oz jar I didn't use because I thought it would be too small. I'll add it to the aquarium. May as well make it a forest.

          It'll be swinging if it's a male and a female.

            Added another plant and a 60w LED









            Wish there was a way to hide the air lines.
            Anyone know if you can drill a hole in the side of a masson jar?

                Complete and utter failure.

                I need to figure out a better way to ventilate, feed and water.

                I'll use a plastic food safe container next time and run the lines through the side to hide the air lines.

                      it would be cool to watch the roots grow through the glass aquarium

                            Cardboard wrapper I can take off to show the roots.
