DIY 10 Gallon DWC Tutorial




What do you think about this video?

RayneSaltair: Thank you I never thought of keeping the plastic cut outs.

SuperCal: Great video. You can use smaller net pots with lettuce and save the hydroton. Do what's best for you. I am always trying to cut costs.

slippybits: Geez chemical food!

Wadley225: There's a new person showing how to grow in soil and he learned from the best. Channel name is StudentOfTheRetard .

Donald Kosse: this on of the best.

Jim jack: Is this system for growing the plants larger then transplanting...or growing to full maturity? Thanks

Donald Kosse: what is the size of your net pot all I have been able to find is 3,75 is this it or 4''

Wanda Winn: i am a newbie watched your video you made it so simple i tried it works for me thank you for making it easy to do

Donald Kosse: what kind of lighting do you use.

Sandy Chaplin: Hi I am really enjoying your video's but wanted to tell you that your link isn't working I wanted to find out where and what kind of ph tester you were using

Glen Bien: You used a teaspoon not a Tablespoon. Small t = teaspoon. Big T = Tablespoon. A Tablespoon is 3 teaspoons.

sublexxus79: Nice vid!

Keith S: You used the same spoon to measure tablespoons and teaspoons, so one chemical was either under or over dosed, which was it?

Donald Kosse: you are very informative I look forward to watch your shows . 

ARMAND ALOVERA: Instead of paint, maybe you just could use a black plastic bag to wrap-around the lower part of the 10 gallon container growing media.

cplassman2009: I really want to do this. How can I keep herbs, lettuce, etc growing to have a rotating harvest? How many units/tubs do you think I would need for a family of four?

Dennis allmon: dude dont show them to use se through containers everyone get dark containers or you will get algae and brown slime

patti Schippani: Great, informative video. I think I will do this for my summer hydro garden. Thank you. BTW, Who the heck are those 4 people who would give this a thumbs down???? It takes all kinds...

Patrick Dyer: Pipette

Anthony Grillo: Thanks! do you need to change water or add more nutrients? i will be growing mostly lettuce...

Julie Klett: Great video for newbies. Thank you. I live in the high rockies (7,500 feet) and am trying to mastermind a way to grown greens (lettuce, spinach, arugula, chard) on my porch in a way that won't freak out the HOA. Considering this kind of system, placed in a cold frame to which I will add a critter-proof screen (for when it is open). I also have to fend off elk, deer, rabbits, voles, and ground squirrels. I imagine that painting the system black will help it gather and retain heat overnight (temps can drop to the 30s in the summer here). I will probably also build a support with casters for mobility, so I can chase the sun a bit.

Kerry Archambault: What would you say the total cost for this was? Clay, rockwool, areator...

Samwel Njenga: That's a beautiful demonstration. Very well explained. 

Vikram Raval: plastic is cheap but fertilizer or nutrients is expensive ...defeats purpose unless you are growing something that makes you money. gardening traditional way in soil is more economical 

Nick Mercado: Nice setup but I have a few questions if you don't mind taking a minute. First, when the roots start to grow outside the net pot, what would be our next step? Replanting? Could you eliminate the flood table and run it as a dwc? Second, flooding and light schedule for the weeks leading up to flowering? third, I have 5" net pots that are being flooded about halfway up the pot, covering a 1/4 of the bottom of the rockwool. Is that okay? Should I raise the rockwool while I still can? Sorry I just haven't gotten any answers from any forums but I greatly appreciate your help.

DrKeggs99: Nice video. Very detailed. Thanks for sharing

doug shepherd: Dude it sez tsp (thats teaspoon) you keep saying tbl (tablespoon)

Samizdat Press: No you have to empty and refill the reservoir about once every 2 weeks, 1) to stop algae from growing, and ) Because it eats up all or most of the nutrients so it needs new food. There are more automated systems but this is just a cheap DIY one (though it works as well as anything you can buy)

unknown unknown: All of your comments on Youtube are unfunny.

OutdoorHydro: Preferably it should be 69 degrees, of course that fluctuates and can go all the way up to ~80 depending on what you are growing. Best practice is to never let the temp swing more than 15 degrees in either direction. Wher eI live it goes from 55 to 80 degrees between day and night, and everything still grows fine. The only issue I've had was growing lettuce in warm weather as lettuce is a shade crop and didn't like the heat.

OutdoorHydro: Yah I have since switched to all dry nutrients as they are infinitely cheaper and exactly the same, you just don't have to pay for the water (and the cost to ship the extra water weight). If you go to outdoorhydro . com you can check out the shop and buy enough to last you for months for under $20 and it's (in my opinion) the best quality brand of dry nutes out there.

armynurse01: thanks so much!awesome video!

Jiu Xianghou: I'll take note of that last part. Thanks.

MrHairyNutz: Question About PPM: If its above or below what you want it to be how do you correct it? And what could happen if you do not correct it?

Jiu Xianghou: By using nutrients doesn't that mean you have to clean the tub every week or so?

mitchyy90: what temperature does the water need to be?

CoolAshley23: is the water Ph level same for all plant?

James Morgan Gravley: Best tutorial I have found so far. Thorough and complete. Thank you. Do you know if these chemicals come in powder form? I live in Honduras and need to bring them down. Any suggestions? Thanks

OmarDono: GREAT in depth video! Dude I visit a bunch of sites to get info and u had everything here in one video! Awesome vid!

OutdoorHydro: Nah I just use regular water. The seeds have enough nutrition to get them going until the roots reach the reservoir.

Marsx4: Very helpful video. I always sanitize everything beforehand though. Airlines, reservoir, net pots, airstone, etc. I had a problem with pythium/root rot on one grow and it made a believer of me : ]

johnybadblood justin: I BOUGHT THE SAME ONE BUT MY TUB IS THE COLLER OF THE LID AND I USED A RAZOR AND CUT THE RIM OFF OF A NET POT AND TRACED IT AND SLOWLY CUT IT OUT AND CUT MY SELF :) CAREFUL..I ALSO USE A DRILL BUT I DRILL THE DISKS OUT OF OLD TUBS ..ALSO ON THE CORNER ON THAT TUB IS FLAT I PUT A DRAIN PLUG

OutdoorHydro: Thanks isculptu, I'm glad you enjoyed it! Check out outdoorhydro dotcom for more tutorials!

OutdoorHydro: No I've actually never grown cannabis but it's all the same for any fruit bearing plant really. I mean you can buy a pack of dry nutrients for $15 that will last all year across several crops and RO water can be purchased at any grocery store water dispenser in 5 gallon jugs for under 50 cents a gallon.

OutdoorHydro: No problem my friend, glad I could help!

OutdoorHydro: LOUD NOISES!

mike maderos: all the talk about clean water then you stir it up with your hand and pollute it.

OutdoorHydro: Zeus wore sandals. Just sayin.

Condee: Very informative video. Especially the part about the chemicals. Good job.

Richard Ramirez: shouldn't you use 1/4 strength of nutrients?

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
