The insulation helped with the temps quite a bit. With the injector board the nutrients are always mixed with well water so that helps with temps as well

How does that Styrofoam hold up? Also are those numbers on the injectors in mL? Am I to assume they have a internal flow censor that can tell the amount of water flowing through it (can you test it's accuracy?)? Even so, you would still need to know what concentration each mL of the nutrient has for the right concentration to be dispensed. Or is it trial and error? If you don't mind me asking, how much are the injectors? I know they must be expensive, but I'm just wondering. Considering your setup I'm guessing you spent over $20,000 easily for everything (greenhouse, growing containers etc..). According to Virti-gro's website a 500 plant system runs about $7,000 alone. I would at least hope those Styrofoam containers have a lifetime warranty.

The pots seem to hold up well they also help insulate. The injectors do have numbers on the bottom for adjusting. Verti-Gro gave me the intial setting for the injectors using the nutrient mix I was using and they were right on tho you could tweak it by testing the nutrients with a meter. Not sure about the cost of just the injectors I bought the whole board already built and it was around 1500 but these are the larger injectors they do make smaller ones.

That's poly pipe that the drip tubes go into and it's 1/8" drip line. There are different brands of 1/8" the type I usually get you just punch a hole into the poly and slide the tubing into the hole. I ran out last year and bought some drip from a local company and I had to buy barbs to slip into the poly then the drip attached to the other end of the barb what a pain in the butt those fittings were very brittle and I have repaced all of that drip
