    I didn't see this mentioned, Butch... sorry if I missed it, how long do you let the pump run before it shuts off, and how often does it run? Also, how deep does the water get in the plant tub?

    i fill the tub up to about 3/4ths of the pot height. The pump runs for about an hour (daily).... but it doesnt really matter as long as it reaches the depth. Once it begins to drain, the drain occurs faster then the pump fills. So it doesnt refill, the pump just sort of circulates till the timer shuts it off.

    I do run an aquarium air pump continously in the reservoir. I feel this saturates the water with oxygen, much like natural rain would be. This should kill any anaerobic bacteria that tries to find a home in my heli pots. (that and the draining of the water allows fresh air to fill the root zone and displace the bad)

    Or at least I think it should

    I really wish there was a "like" button for some of these posts.

    Beautiful! So, all of the plants were replanted into identical containers for the new system?

    as much as was feasable at the time, didnt have room to do it for all... but yes, that is the eventual goal.

    Most are now in 6"x 6"x 6" and all round pots are now gone!!!

    Most of the lower shelf is done as well, but there are still quite a few 4x4x4 left in it.... Im using it for small divisions and immature plants.

    woohoo
