the Greenhouse and one of the Seedsman beans decided that they didn't wanna play so i'm only doing two this round
here they are at 9 days (yesterday)
and i put my drip system together ........
1x maxi-jet pump model MJ 500 480L/h
1x 1/2" hose (from hydrofarm) 31" / 79cm long
1x 1/2" plug/end cap
2x 1/4" hose (the hard plastic stuff) 29" / 74cm long
2x 1/4" barbed couplers
looks like this assembled ........
i put it in a 5 gallon bucket with a lid that the frame that holds the cups is attached to. start small but drill a hole in the plug/end cap so that the flow at the ends of the 2 1/4" lines if what you want it to be (i ended up with a 15/64" hole but every pump is going to be different) what i was looking for was about 3 oz./90 ml in 30 seconds. having some kind of rig to hold everything in place when you are doing adjustments makes this whole project really easy
mine looks like this ........
once i had that done i built some drip rings which i will post in a couple minutes
