slippybits: Geez chemical food!
Donald Kosse: what kind of lighting do you use.
Jim jack: Is this system for growing the plants larger then transplanting...or
growing to full maturity? Thanks
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.
RayneSaltair: Thank you I never thought of keeping the plastic cut outs.
Wadley225: There's a new person showing how to grow in soil and he learned from the
best. Channel name is StudentOfTheRetard .
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: this on of the best.
Donald Kosse: you are very informative I look forward to watch your shows .
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...
Kerry Archambault: What would you say the total cost for this was? Clay, rockwool, areator...
Dennis allmon: dude dont show them to use se through containers everyone get dark
or you will get algae and brown slime
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.
77TRYTON: To many plants for one tote. 4 baskets is the ideal amount
George Bell: Excellent hydroponics engineering...
sublexxus79: Nice vid!
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
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.
rick d: great video but, and I'm sure a gazillion ppl told you this already, cut a
smaller hole. lol
Kim Ham: Why are you using a clear tub, that will let light into the roots
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.
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
Keith S: You used the same spoon to measure tablespoons and teaspoons, so one
chemical was either under or over dosed, which was it?
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.
Glen Bien: You used a teaspoon not a Tablespoon. Small t = teaspoon. Big T =
Tablespoon. A Tablespoon is 3 teaspoons.
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
Samwel Njenga: That's a beautiful demonstration. Very well explained.
Jose Rivera: Greate job!
Anthony Grillo: Thanks! do you need to change water or add more nutrients? i will be
growing mostly lettuce...
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?
DrKeggs99: Nice video. Very detailed. Thanks for sharing
Patrick Dyer: Pipette
doug shepherd: Dude it sez tsp (thats teaspoon) you keep saying tbl (tablespoon)
damosapian: nice vid stew, thank for your time and effort
jony bong: good video keep it green
Donald Kosse: HI
Let me say I find your show the best I have seen but I am interest in what
of the sure to grow products
Johnny Thceeds: If you run the air it mixes your nutrients as you add them.
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
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.
samljer: 4" pots should have the holes drilled to 3.75 (3+3/4).
samljer: Fantastic vid, thx.
What if, instead of an air pump, i put a water pump that top fed the plants?
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
