11 Quick Steps to Set Up Your iDOO 12-pod Indoor Hydroponic System

Hi guys!

Today I’m going to show you how to quickly assemble and run the iDOO 12-pod Indoor Hydroponic System.

Put the bowl and the light hood together

Plug the pump plug into the socket on the light hood. Then connect the plug from the power supply to the socket on the light hood. The power supply must not be connected to electricity.

Attach the support to the light hood. Insert the support together with the light hood into the slot on the bowl.

Pour water into the bowl

It’s most convenient to pour water with the grow deck removed, as the hole for pouring water is quite small and you can spill water. Pour 4 liters of water into the bowl.

To know how much water to pour look at the window on the side of the bowl where you have a scale that shows the amount of water.

You can use either tap water or distilled water.

Dilute the plant food

Pour water into both bottles of plant food. Pour almost a full bottle of water. Close the cork and shake each bottle well.

Leave them for a few minutes and then shake until the solid fertilizer dissolves. In its liquid state, the plant food is usable for 2 years.

Add the plant food to the water

When the solid fertilizer has dissolved, add 20 milliliters of plant food to the bowl of water. Use bottle caps with a scale on them to measure out the correct amount.

Avoid putting too much plant food to prevent the burning of the roots. Add a new portion of plant food every time you change the water.

Put the seeds into the grow sponges

Since this hydroponic system is not supplied with seeds you need to get your own seeds. Put 2-3 seeds in each grow sponge. Make sure that you place the seeds exactly in the hole of the grow sponge.

Put the grow sponges in the net pots

Put each grow sponge in a separate net pot. Be careful that the seeds do not fall out of the sponges.

Put stickers on the pots

Put stickers on the net pots. In the center of each sticker tear off a circle to make a hole for the plants to grow. The stickers are needed to prevent algae from growing on the sponges.

Insert the seed pods into the holes

Insert the seed pods into the holes. I only use 4 seed pods to give the plants enough room to grow. You can use all of the available holes.

Cover the seed pods with humidity domes

Put a humidity dome on top of each seed pod. This will provide quick germination for the seeds. Cover the holes that you are not using with the covers that come with the hydroponic system.

Turn on the power to the device

Insert the plug into the power outlet. Then press the ‘Power’ button on the control panel. The light should come on and the fan should start to run.

The next thing you need to do is to select the lighting mode. There are two types of lighting: Vegetables and Flowers. Choose the one that suits your plants.

Move the light hood to the lowest position

Release the catch on the support and lower the light hood to the lowest position. Then close the safety catch again.

This completes the setup of the iDOO 12-pod Indoor Hydroponic System. I wish you all the best and see you next time!
