My 10 Gallon of Growingness
So I decided that I wanted to start up an emersed growing system with plants that I didn't have and maybe a few I already did. Either way this is hopefully going to become a farm system with lots of rapid growth so I have a bunch of plants to use.
Tank: already had it 8) ballin out
Substrate: Scott's oragnic potting soil $3.50
Timer: $4.88 at meijer
Lights: 10 gallon hood I had an 2 clearence led bulbs that take in 7w but were rated for 40w (6500k) like $6ish also ghetto rigged some aluminum foil to lengthen the reflectors.
3 colorful cheapo clearance buckets from meijer: $.49x3
3 plants that I've never had before. $4.99+$2.99+$2.99
Micro Sword (most excited for)
No idea what this is, hopefully someone can help me out, its reddish. (generic, I know)
Any tips or help offered is really appreciated as I'm new to this whole, growing things only partially in water thing.
I know they are really bad pictures, I'll post better ones when the lights come on in the morning, don't feel like messing with the timer right now.
