Make A Mojitonator To Your Own Garden Step By Step

Step 1: Make Your Mint Cuttings

Cut a minimum of 4 branches with 4-5 set of leaves.
Remove the leaves from the two bottom sets
Boil some water and make yourself a mint infusion 🙂
Put the cuttings in water. Don’t let leaves touch the water, just stems.
Roots will show after 3-4 days. It’s very quick. You can put them in your Mojitonator after a week or two.

Step 2: Materials & Tools

1 Plastic Bucket (2 gal)
4 Mesh pots (3.5 in)
1 Air pump
1 Air stone with tubing
Hydroponic nutrients (1 l of A + 1 l of B solution)
Expanded clay
4 Water Rooted Mint Cuttings
1 Water Level indicator (optional)
Exacto knife
Drill bits
3.5″ Hole saw (optional)

Step 3: Make Holes in the Lid for the Mesh Pots

You need to form 4 holes to carry the 4 mesh pots within the lid of the two gal bucket.

With Hole Saw
Use a 3.5″ hole saw on your drill and make 4 holes within the lid
Without Hole Saw
Draw 4 circles on your lid
Cutout with exacto knife
You can also use alittle drilling bit and make multiple holes following the lines you made then finish the work with the exacto knife.

Step 4: Make Holes for the Air Pump Tubing and Water Lever Indicator

Air Pump Tubing
Make a hole with a drilling bit the dimensions of the tubing between two mesh pots hole within the lid.
Put the tube through the opening and insert air stone at the top .
Water Level Indicator
Make sure the opening isn’t to big for the water level indicator to squeezed tight within the hole.
Ajuste the peak of the indicator with maximum water within the bucket

Step 5: Make the Hydroponic Solution

Hydroponic Growth Solution
Fill your bucket until the water level is 1/2 to 3/4 inch higher then rock bottom of the mesh pot.
Follow the instructions on your nutrient bottles. Mine was 25 ml of an answer + 25 ml of B solution.
For optimum growth you ought to adjust the pH. But its not crucial. you’d need a pH pen and a pH up or down solution.

Step 6: Put Your Mint Cutting in the Mesh Pots

Rooted Cuttings
It’s now time to place your rooted cutting within the mesh pots.

Make sure the roots are within the water. Add water if necessary.
Fill the mesh pot with expanded clay while holding the cutting
To make the plant more bushy, cut the most stem under the primary set of leaves. New shoots will appear at every nodes thereunder .
If you started seedlings during a rockwool cube, await roots to return out of rock bottom of the cube to place them in your system. Just drop them a rock bottom of the mesh pot, touching slightly the water.
For the primary fortnight keep an eye fixed on the water level therefore the cubes don’t dry out.

Step 7: Place the Mojitonator in a Sunny Spot

You can put your Mojitonator on your patio. If you employ a black bucket, it’d get hot. Paint it white or put something over it. Don’t use a white bucket. The sun will go thought the bucket and make algae in your solution.
Find a sunny spot in your house or add lighting made for plants. i exploit these Sunblaster 48″ led light strips.
