DIY 10 Gallon DWC Tutorial




What do you think about this video?

mrwilltattoodude: also at the 26 mark you can see algae growing all over the rockwool.The cubes need to be low enough so you can cover the cubes later with hydroton after the plants grow a little.

mrwilltattoodude: 600 PPM on seedling will fry them bitches assuming you are using a ,5 conversion TDS meter.man this is a crap video

mrwilltattoodude: LOL this is a suck ass video.First you need to set the water level with the nets in place and about an inch of hydroton in the net so the water bubbles below the rocks.YOU completely skipped that step so no one is gonna know where to set the water level and why.Using RO water you need a calmag supplement first thing or your plants are gonna look like crap i a week.AND you never add the nutes straight to the res.YOU mix with water first.THE very last thing you do is PH the water cause nutes and calmag will alter the PH not PH the water first.And one airstone in that bucket is crap.You need more air under the nets.And lastly a clear bucket gonna grow algae like a bitch.Delete this video cause everything you did was Janky as fuuuk lol.

tom harrison: Something people might want to seriously consider when choosing a plastic container for growing is whether the plastic is food grade or one risks chemicals leaching into your produce. If you flip a container over, it should have some kind of "label" on it indicating what kind of plastic. I would bet good money that the plastic container shown says HDPE 5 on the bottom which is considered the worst for food storage.

I made one of these for my garden and rather than spray painting the outside to make it opaque, I just wrapped foil around the bottom part and voila! - dark AND reflective rather than black which absorbs heat. Its winter here in Seattle and I didn't want to try and spray paint on the patio and wait a week for something to dry which is why I just went with foil. I am thinking of getting a can of chalkboard paint though once the weather turns and spraying the outside. Not only would it be opaque, I would be able to take chalk and make notes on the tub like when I last changed the liquid or what strain I have growing, etc.

Last thing - I don't have a 4" router bit and rather than spend $30-40 to get one, I took my largest drill bit, drilled the center hole, then took a pair of scissors (a pair from my home barber-clipper set) and cut the circle out. Yes, it was tedious but it worked. Because I cut by hand, my circle is just a bit smaller than 4" and my net pots fit in nice and snug.

Lit' AHSr.: I want to start to do this but my god man all that stuff you pay for pH up and down and all the other etc give me a headache, might as well buy the dang lettuce for the store

Michael Hetu: Is this an aeroponics type system?

Andy Jones: How do you change the water in the reservoir?

2 Spirit Metis: Hey thanks for sharing that and making it look easy. I really want to grow kale. Collards too; basically all the expensive greens in green smoothies. Oh, if it were possible to grow avocados. Do you think it possible to grow kale and spinach with the salad greens? I imagine you have to bloom tomatoes separately from the rest. But can you clone them in the first stage togetherness? Or should tomato plants stay separate from the beginning? Can you grow romas and cherry or beefsteak together? Not much space. A little worried about food prices. So apologies for all the questions. Thanks again for the clearly demonstrated video.

Manuel Delos Santos Jr.: what is the height of your container and the netpots?

GODADDY: Why did you take the pot as 10 gallon tote instead of one has more volume or instead of one has greater surface with saame volume?

Dave_live straight_edge: pretty nice Video. 😎👌

Darren vaud: why would you use a clear reservoir? I thought roots dont like lite also won't algae occur?

Conrad Arnts: Thank you! Finally a good tutorial video for beginners!

Benzo Vinchzo: could I add fish instead of nutrients to this set up?

Edward Burke: So from reading the comments here I gather that you need to block the sun and light with a darker res. And you should put the nute in first. Lol. Man, I don't know how you deal with some dopes. Dude great job and maybe an update vid?

Jason Lam: Can I cut bigger holes to grow my tomatoes?

U1775: Great informative video. Explained everything really well.

Abdul Qadeer: sir please give me this two chemical name please

DJ TV: u need block the light out roots get pissed off, you should use black plastic products as blocks light this will end up with algae growing on it and on roots
