Gurgle Garden

 

 

1461.jpg (20041 bytes) Here is a banana tree that I bought at a local flea market that cost $4.00 And sense I put it in this Gurgle Garden it has grown so much that I will transfer it from a 2 1/2 gallon container to a 10 gallon container to see how large I can grow this thing.

It has been growing one leaf every three days.
1450.jpg (15349 bytes) I am using 2 ten gallon containers that cost $4.00 apiece that should last about a year before they crack.
1453.jpg (8279 bytes) Drill holes in the bottom of the top container through the bottom container so the water will drain.
1456.jpg (10632 bytes) Drill a larger hole at the edge for the 1/4 inch air hose.
1449.jpg (17581 bytes) I put this 3/4 PVC riser in the bottom nutrient container to help hold the weight of the top container with the banana tree. It serves no other purpose than that.
1448.jpg (18596 bytes) It doesn't matter what shape you make the riser as long as it's the right height. And drill a few small holes in the top and bottom so it wont float in the nutrient solution container.
1457.jpg (7186 bytes) Use plastic ties to tie the 1/4 " hose together.  It's the same design as this drawing,       GALAIR_small.JPG (2418 bytes)
1460.jpg (14683 bytes) It will take 10 gallons of grow rocks to fill this bitch. I have to find a cheaper medium.
1463.jpg (16839 bytes) I wonder when I get to pick some bananas. Probably in a few years.
1467.jpg (16423 bytes) A $5.00 air pump is all you need to power this garden. You can also use a submersible pump to which I have had to do when my air pump broke. They aren't as reliable as submersible pump.
