Experience w/ perlite drip irrigation

tampahydroSeptember 29, 2008

Looking for advice/pics/ideas on various setups utilizing perlite and low pressure recirculating drip irrigation. Small setups (25 plants) would work, but I would ultimately like to build one practical for a 48'-96' greenhouse/shadehouse.

Any setup including PVC, concrete, wooden troughs, etc would be appreciated.

I should add that I want to concentrate on tomatoes, and peppers.

Take a look at this link: http://www.hydroponicsonline.com/gallon_commercial.htm
There are a bizillion pictures on this site.

I personally use a rendition of what is shown here, although I don't use gallon jugs. Still, the idea is what is important and I've tried this and it works great. In fact, I'm tending to move all but my lettuce into this kind of a system in the next several months.
