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!
Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks Nery , That means a lot. Thanks for watching & commenting!
nery colon: Great video. thanks for the information.
L2design: Non mercury bulbs
Austin Family Gardening Channel: What would you recommend ?
Austin Family Gardening Channel: Just subbed to your channel & looking forward to your next update. Thanks for watching!
MrWaterchemistry: 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: Thanks for the comment & thanks for watching!
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.
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
Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks Bud !
Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks Rob!
Rob Bob: 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
TheSonoman1976: Nice! Keep us posted!
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 April! hope you & your family have a great year!
Austin Family Gardening Channel: Too funny! Thanks Dale really surprised with the results so far
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!
April Owens: What a great video! Your pepper plant looks great!
Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks Bobby!
Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks Bro ! looking forward to seeing your next project
Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks Brock, i'll be looking forward to seeing your floating raft set up
Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thanks, I also want to try the floating raft .
Austin Family Gardening Channel: Thank you !
mporganics: Great video
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!
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
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: Thanks!
