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''
Donald Kosse: what kind of lighting do you use.
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
sublexxus79: Nice vid!
Donald Kosse: you are very informative I look forward to watch your shows .
Patrick Dyer: Pipette
Anthony Grillo: Thanks! do you need to change water or add more nutrients? i will be
growing mostly lettuce...
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.
Dennis allmon: dude dont show them to use se through containers everyone get dark
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...
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...
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
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
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
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
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
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
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?
thekingdomathand: Why not adjust pH after you add the nutrients?
kama kazi: Darker tub .wont let light in ..less root rot
Stewart Gregerson: Some prefer different pH levels but the rule of thumb is that pretty much
everything under the sun will do well at a pH of 6.5. Never go less than 6
or more than 7, and don't make big transitions too quickly (like going from
5.5 to 6.5), as it can shock the plants.
OutdoorHydro: If your PPM is too high, than dilute it by adding more water. If it is too
low, add more nutrients. The PPM is just a measure of how much fertilizer
is in your reservoir essentially so if it's too low or too high than the
effects are similar to any regular plant that has too much or too little
kama kazi: Good vid though..subbed
Usc529 (Jay): Im using tap water right out of the sink and I dont have a ppm meter.Does
tap water ever clean up to lower than 10ppm if I let it sit a while or will
it always have a high ppm.
