DIY 10 Gallon DWC Tutorial




What do you think about this video?

surj93: Hi there. Are the roots submerged in the water? If so, how do you stop over watering? 

Mick Mack: Well done. Clearly presented.

Hanson Nguyen: At 15:14, that is not a table spoon, but a teaspoon!

Discofreestyle: Why not just buy a coloured tub in the first place? There must be literally millions of choices of storage box out there!

tootz1950: Please do not use an eating utensil to measure your chemicals, that spoon is not an accurate teaspoon or tablespoon. You can get a full set at the $ store. And you just cut your holes 1/4" smaller.

slippybits: Geez chemical food!

rick d: great video but, and I'm sure a gazillion ppl told you this already, cut a smaller hole. lol

George Bell: Excellent hydroponics engineering...

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

77TRYTON: To many plants for one tote. 4 baskets is the ideal amount

Dennis Steele: WoW that's a lot of chemistry! I put my Black Simpson lettuce seed in the dirt and started watching this video and before it was over I had a salad.

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.

Jose Rivera: Greate job!

Kim Ham: Why are you using a clear tub, that will let light into the roots

Alex Tonnaire: good video,but be carefull,the roots dont like the light...

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

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

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.

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

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

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?

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

Patrick Dyer: Pipette

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

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 

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.

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

damosapian: nice vid stew, thank for your time and effort

jony bong: good video keep it green

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''

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.

Patt S: 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...

Donald Kosse: what kind of lighting do you use.

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.

Johnny Thceeds: If you run the air it mixes your nutrients as you add them.

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

sublexxus79: Nice vid!

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

Higzy Teflon: +OutdoorHydro Excellent video, but you lost me when you decided to pH your water BEFORE adding nutrients and additives, which, is known to either drop or even sometimes raise pH AFTER being added to the water. I have never grown in a DWC system, only in soiless, but, am I to understand that pHing water before adding nutrients is the proper way of doing it with DWC? You checked ppms after adding everything, but did not check pH. This just doesn't seem to make any sense to me.

DrKeggs99: Nice video. Very detailed. Thanks for sharing

Donald Kosse: HI Let me say I find your show the best I have seen but I am interest in what you think of the sure to grow products

Dingo Doorstep: Wont plant roots drown when exposed to this much water and is another top feed drip tube system necessary ? Thanks for the help ! :D

samljer: Fantastic vid, thx. What if, instead of an air pump, i put a water pump that top fed the plants? 1L/hr?

samljer: 4" pots should have the holes drilled to 3.75 (3+3/4).

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.
