My Kratky Experiment,Hydroponics For Beginners-Kratky Method Of Hydroponics




What do you think about this video?

Th Linn gill: 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

jose luis Rivera: Hello Family, How often I need to change or refill nutrient solution? Thanks

Th Linn gill: 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

Jerry Maulden: I'd say cut the old root off jus short of the water level or add air stones

Th Linn gill: 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

Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks for the comment & thanks for watching! Larry

Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks Nery , That means a lot. Thanks for watching & commenting! Larry

Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks April! hope you & your family have a great year! Larry

Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks Bro ! looking forward to seeing your next project

Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks Bud !

sailingsolar: Thank you very much for posting this Larry. I'm about to retire and hope to get to play with off the grid hydroponics. I think there is opportunity to fine tune this and explore it's potential. It will be really interesting to see if the growth rate changes as the new roots take over and develop more total mass. Also how it grows when it sees real sunshine after winter. I subscribed and await your progress. Keep posting!

Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks Bobby!

TheSonoman1976: Nice! Keep us posted!

peppergrower44: Wow thanks for showing it can be done really thanks alot

Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks, I agree. I wasn't sure if this would work, but making videos is a good way to make a gardening log.Paying attention to details I think is a must when your trying something new.This spring i'm going to invest into better metering so I can have a better understanding on whats going on.

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

meanshoes: The pepper looks good Larry. I like the simplicity. I may do a hand water system in the greenhouse this spring using coco fibre. I'd like to develop a system that's hand operated to get away from the reliance of electricity.Even if I have hand water buckets. I'll be trying the Kratky method as well by duplicating Bobbys raft style. great job with the pepper bro you can see definite improvement. great jobe bro! Brock

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. Larry

Austin Family Gardening Channel: What would you recommend ?

nery colon 1: Great video. thanks for the information.

Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thank you !

Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks!

Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks, I also want to try the floating raft .

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 ! Larry

L2design: Non mercury bulbs

Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks Rob!

Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks! I'm learning as I go, hope you can do some videos when you get set up. I love watching you tube videos. You can always learn something new from everyone.Take care Larry

Captain Tim: Kratky is a set it and forget system, your roots smell because you are drowning them!

edwinahaskell: The fertilizer that MHP recomments is much better than fish water.

Indoor Harvest Gardens: i'm making one too after seeing bobby's video with a spin as well. looks like it works. the smell was most likely remaining nutrients/dirt from it being in dirt. good experiment ;)-

mhpgardener: That's pretty cool. It could be a great way to overwinter various plants. Especially something slow growing like peppers. Good job Larry.

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: Wish I could. Don't have a camera.

Rob Bob: Nice clip Larry... Good result with just the fish water...

April Owens: What a great video! Your pepper plant looks great!

Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks Brock, i'll be looking forward to seeing your floating raft set up

mediamaker2000: Charlie Brown and Little Rocky. Now Rocky won't be alone lol Those are awesome results Larry! I can't wait to see the update!

edwinahaskell: MHP is why I started gardening. A rather brilliant man. Kratky is the only way I can garden while being disabled.

sumip90x .: Awesome Experiment! Thanks for sharing!

Austin Family Gardening Channel: Just subbed to your channel & looking forward to your next update. Thanks for watching! Larry

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.

Austin Family Gardening Channel: Too funny! Thanks Dale really surprised with the results so far

frozenfowler: I also watched Bobby's video a couple of weeks ago and have been meaning to give it a try. Seems like it would be very efficient way of doing lettuce and other leafy greens. Thanks for sharing!
