justgivemethetruth: those brown roots don't look right? I think you need to shield your nutrient solution from the light better.
Luke Nash: What size cfl you using?
JL LJ: Hello Family,
How often I need to change or refill nutrient solution?
Th Linn: also while watching your video I noticed that you set the net pot all the way down to the its rim in the lid of the bucket . Imnot 100% sure but I think you should have had it up just a bit above the lid so that air would come in to the roots through the resulting gap of about 1/4" this is what nagates the need for a ait stone or pump
Th Linn: As ive seen a couple videos here about these buckets I will soon try to post a design of my own but with shorter buckets as the ones you all are useing seem a bit to deep for my likeing we will see how mine work out I try to do all my hydroponics on the cheep so recycling is a big part of it for me ( im thinking Icecream containers a bit shorter and a it wider
Th Linn: Hello all Iwould sugest that you try two things first off cover the container with dark wrap to keep light off the roots and in the method you are useing you neo keep water level so that air can get to the roots at top of net pot you might add nitrogen suplement to water as I found it helpped with my fish tank system
Jerry Maulden: I'd say cut the old root off jus short of the water level or add air stones
edwinahaskell: Wish I could. Don't have a camera.
Austin Family Gardening Channel: He's a great guy ! If you can make & share a video of what you're doing- love to see it. Have a good one.
edwinahaskell: MHP is why I started gardening. A rather brilliant man. Kratky is the only way I can garden while being disabled.
Austin Family Gardening Channel: Hi Ed, I started off with aquarium water because I didn't want to burn the roots at 1st. I also use Chem- Gro hydroponic nutrients the same as MHP. MHP has a great Hydroponic Fertilizer video if you want to learn more about hydroponic nutrients. Thanks for taking the time to watch & comment.
edwinahaskell: The fertilizer that MHP recomments is much better than fish water.
Austin Family Gardening Channel: Its still alive . I think the smell was from the old roots dying. 7 months old. Slowing drowning. Yes you are right I guess I should call it a motified Kratky. Thanks for watching & commenting !
Captain Tim: Kratky is a set it and forget system, your roots smell because you are drowning them!
nery colon 1: Great video. thanks for the information.

Internet Sites: I have had an aquaponics system running for the past year producing tomatoes, turnips, beans, lettuce and peppers. I have always had the goal of organic and as low electricity consumption as possible. After seeing your video I am going to try a raft without air. I'll plan to change the fish water weekly. Thanks for posting your video. There are not too many videos showing this no air fish water method. I'll upload the videos of my progress. Thanks again.
peppergrower44: Wow thanks for showing it can be done really thanks alot
Rob Bob's Backyard Farming & Aquaponics: Nice clip Larry... Good result with just the fish water...
sailingsolar: "Most likely" could be but I wonder. Jumping to conclusions or making assumptions can be counter productive. Every detail must be factored. Roots are damaged pretty easily, I suspect. If rinsed off with municipal water that has traces chlorine. That might have be a factor. The odor is data that should not be over looked. That suggests they died and the plant is starting to replace that part now. I don't know, I'm just saying. Paying attention to details may pay off greatly, more if shared. SS
