Here's a home made bubbler made from....well you can see what its made from :-) more hydro poo nics perhaps.
I used it this year to grow on a few Siam Ruby pups.
Producing the home made nutrient was more tricky though.

Thought I would kick the dust off this thread. Lots of dust.

I cut a 55 gallon plastic barrel in 1/2 the long way. Fixed a frame to lay it down on top of my pond. Installed a bell siphon on one end. Filled with homemade corse sand. Planted Dwarf Orinoco in the center. Water and nutrients come from 720 gallons of fish ponds filled with several varieties of goldfish. The system is inside my greenhouse.

Plant went through quite a shock at first. Then as the water temperature rose the plant recovered and grew nicely. The temp is back down now,high 50's, but the plant looks great and is slowly growing. I expect the plant to flower next year. So far no pups.
