home made DIY DFT / NFT PVC Hydroponic System

- September 2, 2016



This PVC hydroponic system only takes up a bit of room on my workbench, it’s very small. It uses two 4 ft fluorescent

lights which are energy efficient and do not effect the room temperature at all. The lights are mounted on top using

adjustable chains. . It’s my first experiment with lettuce.

This whole system only cost $20.00 to make, very cheap for the novice to experience with.

  • I want to make a similar system but what is that end cap that has the 1/2" threaded hole in it? I love that idea for the drain but can't find a cap or plug like that. Where did you get it?
