This is Urban Gardener (courtesy GG) located in the southern part of New Delhi. Have around 400 Sqft of terrace area and believe me it's on the track of best possible use in all these years.
Trying hand's on with Hydroponics after tumbling upon GG's (How to grow tomatoes in Growbags) and have been to every corner of the city to source the supplies required for setup and a some with GG's help. Finally have got the setup going and will keep you all posted.
I am really happy to discover the Indian farmer within and am sure to contribute in every way .
Happy Growing !

Hi Urban Gardener,
I am also planning on setting up a hydroponics setup. I am looking at using about 80 growbags to grow about 8 to 10 different types of veggies. I was mainly inspired by the setup of Growing Tomatoes in Growbags – Hydroponic way by GG.
Can you please share some photos of your build? What is the bill-of-material and where did you source your stuff from. BTW, I am starting my setup next week.
All the best for the setup. I too was inspired by the GTIGHW post by GG. Have tweaked a few things like grow bags which are not available in Delhi and the high cost of getting it shipped from South was a turn-off, so instead I am using the plastic pots for mainly different kind of Heirloom tomatoes. The BOM is mentioned below and surely will be posting the pics of the setup soon:
a) Plastic Pots – 14"
b) Lateral Pipe – 1/2"
c) Cocopeat Bales – 5Kg
d) Digial Timer – Frontline -TM 619H-4 pin
e) Stake Drippers – 4L/Hr
f) Microtubes – 4mm
g) Microtube emitters
h) Elbow connectors
i) T – joints
j) 80 L Drum with Lid
k) Silicon Adhesive
l) 1" screws and 1/2" wall clamps
m) 1/2" Nozzles
n) pH and EC testers
Hope you find it useful.
Thanks for the pics. I have some questions that I will be posting in your other thread (http://geekgardener.in/forum/n.....new-delhi/).
