Almost two weeks ago I accidentally broke a large branch off a scotch bonnet plant. I was inspired from Peter Stanley's low pressure aeroponics system, so I figured I would give a try at rooting in a similar method. I cut a hole in the center of a 5 gallon pail lid and mounted a small tomato cage to it for support. From Home Depot, I bought a small pond pump and modified the spray attachment to make it quite short. I filled my pail 1/3 full of water and added a liquid root booster fertilizer. The root fertilizer had mention of root hormones and directions for hydroponics. I cut the branch at a 45 degree angle, close to what looked like a node (bump that looked like a branch or leaves could grow from it). The pond pump is sitting in the bottom of the pail and I added an 80 gallon aquarium airstone to it.
Right now the branch is hanging in the pail out of the water being sprayed constantly with the pump. I removed all of the flowers, buds and large leaves, and have the entire setup off to the side of a t-5 light fixture. The lights are on 16-18 hours a day, and are turned off when I go to bed. The remaining leaves look alive and healthy, but I am not sure how often to add nutrients and if and when roots will start to grow. If roots do grow I will plant it in dirt to continue growing over the winter. When I have a chance, I will post a quick video of it. This is a totally new avenue for me. I don't even know if this will work, but I am totally excited to be trying this.
