Gundula Stehfick: You know why your pump gives out hotter water than your return line ? Because your reservoir is black and your pots are white... GOYIM OF THE WORLD UNITE !!!!!
Steven Brennick: There are chillers for aquariums that would work.
The First Watch: You could probably add a pond with Tilapia and use that instead of a tote, the fish detritus would be great fertilizer.
TheKi11erj: dig your well into the earth a few feet
Litia Gillette: Hey There, I just watched your video which I really enjoyed. My thought on the water getting to hot. I would move the water rff of the cement. It will stay much cooler if it were on the grassy area.
Ian Chute: Pls show where the black inlet tubes from the pump enters the buckets?
Robert Johnson: drop your sump into the ground Dawg
Ayyub: why not use a cooler as a reservoir?
Bob Loblaw: freeze water in plastic bottles, pop one in reservoir in the morning and voila, cold water. try one litre first then 2 litre and so on till the water stays cool for the whole day..
Rodney Armstrong: just put your water bucket inside with AC pipe it out to plants cooling problem solved your welcome
Rodney Armstrong: run your bucket inside and pipe it outside that will fix your cooling.
bruce don: Do u let it run all the time or is it on a timer? When you stat out the roots are very short so it drips water on the plant is that right?then u don't need rocks or perlite in the bucket ?and will it grow faster with the perlite up to the roots?
Mohammad Jamal: naic
Indrajeet NARAIN SINGH: good
Bruce Boating: Put your water tank in the ground and no sun hitting the tank. Ground temp will keep your water cool.
Diane Mar: I don't know the name of the material use to create sort of roof for orchids so they don't get too much sunlight and keep area cool and create wood box or build your greenhouse if you're really. getting into it
Josh B: If you want to drill cleaner holes in PVC with a paddle bit, put your drill in reverse while drilling. The paddle bits dug in to much and that's why it chips. If you drill it in reverse it will shave off smaller bits of plastic and leave a perfect clean hole. 😉
Seebe Carver: Melbourne area?
The Pish: Great setup... BUT... you'll have big issues using white buckets... either paint black with spray paint then paint white over the black... blocks light from the roots... roots HATE sunlight... or wrap the buckets well with something to block. paint is easiest
TheOriginalBRad: ice chest should hod temp a bit better.
Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
