DIY- Build your own Aeroponic cloner!
    #249470 - 07/15/09 12:08 AM (7 years, 4 months ago)

Well, by coming here you have found the culmination of many days of research, reading, browsing green forums, my own blood and sweat , a few hundred dollars at home depot and the local hydro store, a few joints , maybe a bong rip or two , and lots of patience .


Here's the unit I built before.


Lesson learned, do shit right. It leaked and since im OCD about stuff it just drove me nuts. Don't skimp out and use a 2 and 1/8" hole saw, USE 2".

Now moving past our mistakes,
Onto the cloner!



So now that you see the beauty you'll end up with, are you ready to get started?

Right on! Here's what you'll need



Supplies:
20ft 1/2" PVC (Home depot has for $1.80 per 10ft)
3 1/2" T's
4 1/2" Elbows
1 1/2" threaded/slip (to screw into the pump)
EZ-Clone Misters (.50 ea at your hydro shop)
35 2" net pots
35 2" neoprene collars
PVC glue
Weather stripping
18Gal RUBBERMAID ROUGHNECK (Don't use anything else. IT WILL LEAK)
396GPH pump

Got all that?
Great, now here's the tools you'll need!

Tools:
Power Drill
Sharp pocket knife
2" hole saw
Ruler
Masking tape
PVC Cutters
Needle Nose pliers
11/64 drill bit

Once you have all this, your set!

Start off by placing the nets onto the tote lid to get a good idea of where they will end up.



Next, start making your measurements!

Pro-tip: Have odd numbered sites, that way you canstart with a hole in the center!



Remember, that with a 5 x 7 setup like I did, one net will be in the direct center of the lid. This makes it easier to align all the others.

Pro-tip!: "Measure twice, cut once!".



Next, measure out your PVC and plan out your loop on the top of the lid.

Pro-tip: When cutting, leave an extra 1/4" or so. Mistakes happen!



All planned out!

Pro-tip: If you get your loop perfect and tight, you may want to glue the outside so you don't have to take it apart and back together! If you do, skip the next gluing parts.



Glue it all together now!

Pro-tip: Be carefull. This shit sets FAST.



Walah! Next we want to mark the mister points to achieve full coverage!



Now drill the holes and screw in your misters!

Pro-tip: Drill with the 11/64 bit, and then take a screw and run it through all the holes to set some threads for the mister heads.



Now put on your weather stripping! Don't want leaks do we?



Now test out how it fits in the tote.

Pro-tip: Glue a 1/4" piece of PVC under the end of the pump to support it. This way it wont lean at all!








Now, cut the bottom halves of all the nets off. Yup. It will make sure the cuttings roots don't get tangled in them. That way when you move them to veg you wont destroy the root systems you've worked for!





Now put some water in that bitch and see if it works!



And now you've got a perfect clone box with 35 sites that will pwn the shit out of anything sold online and you can do it yourself!



I've got roots in 4 days!

Now time for a blunt of some dank homegrown bud!

Any q's or comments feel free to post em!

PEACE!

P.s. I sell these units all-inclusive for $160 shipped to your door.
If you want one without the hard work, fuck ups, and dumping tons of cash to do it right after messing it up, contact me.

Very fuckin nice!
Excellent write-up...I do believe I'm going to have an aerocloner in the near future.
Let's say everything goes according to plan and you already have all the tools, what is the total cost of materials for this thing?
Also, what do you personally use in your cloner as far as water type and/or rooting compounds?

Use straight water, I add a little rooting formula (wont hurt), then just a touch of Hydrogen Peroxide to prevent bacteria, and then PH Balance it with PH Down. Dont use lemon juice or other stuff as it will make things grow in your water.

Total cost if you have all tools?
(Close estimates rounded up)
Pump $25
Nets + neoprene pucks $25
Tote $15
PVC parts and lengths $15
Misters $5
Glue $5

Joints to give you patience and insight $10 :smile:

So I'd say $100 straight up.

as long as the water dosnt settle and stagnate its fine....just keep it aerated and moving......your nute solution can grow things in it too if you let it stagnate

The pump does a pretty good job of aeration when the misters come on and also water stirs up.

I plan on adding air stones to veg and flower stations

I think y'all need to look up the definition for pedophile.

just curious, would misters/foggers still be effective if for example i make an easy cloner duplicate of your DIY, but double the tub size to a 37 gallon so increase the pvc lengths and number of misters.  my question is would the 400 GPH be sufficient enough to supply adequate water to all plants evenly?

So make your designs and do math.

This design cost me $75 for 15 sites, which can easily be expanded to 30 for 15 more bucks. The only issue I had was leakage which was fixed by lining the container with a contractor bag.

Basil showed roots in 2 days with this system, most of my other herbs took about 6 days to show root development. They will be ready for transplant in 4 more days if I had to guess. That makes for 10 days to get strong, healthy cuttings rooted. Not bad at all.

Good tek, thanks!

Nice job on making an aeropnoic cloner. I'm in the process of building a grow box, actually two. I was thinking, I don't have the room for this size tube. Could this be scaled down, let's say two foot wide, and 1 foot tall.

Do you think that the same guts could be used to start clones?

I'm thinking  yes.

Any thoughts?

Very Nice AZ.

Do you put any rooting hormone in your water with this, or do you just spray plain water on them and see roots in 4 days?
