Hello, Im new to this sight but ive been using a deer park water bottle for my net/mesh pot. I’ve been trying to start off as cheap as possible to see how much i like this hobby.

It will! But does it count for solo cup challenge?

We can just keep it to a solo cup. I’m going to set a few things up tonight, to see what can work.

All inside the solo cup or using cup as net pot?

Inside the cup.

If they can do it with dirt , just use a rock wool on top then let the roots go into the cup. Or something like that.

My air stone will be in tomorrow. I have an old GH air pump that should do the trick, … I’m thinking 3 gallons in the bucket :thinking: or more, need to keep the pump going to the Active Aqua… it’s been running for 10 or 15 mins now and all is good. Can’t wait

The cup has no leaks , the water on the sides is from filling, and clay stones will fill the gap.

I have a chunk of abs black plastic I’ll cut out and cover the top for support and to block out the light.

I kept mine the size of a solo cup and used a shot glass solo cup as the net pot

Bit larger than a solo cup… @Onelow51
