    how big do the totes have to be? i would like to have thinner totes, do
    they have to be so deep??

    I am a member of a team at Purdue University working to develop a cheap
    hydroponics system for families looking to supplement their food supply
    with home-grown food. We have written a survey to help us determine what
    our potential customers’ needs are and it would help us if anyone would
    kindly take the time to fill it out. Thanks in advance!

    0:46 – turn off your cell phone dip … or edit it out.?

    Can I use a sponge and peet gravel for a medium in hydroponic system??

  • Jared Traver 2 years ago

    How do you get them out of the soil and into the bigger net pots with clay
    marbles. Soil will just plug my system.?

  • bernard alphonso 2 years ago

    hey grt video… how long do we need to keep the air pump on??

  • justgivemethetruth 2 years ago

    Also, there is a lot of light coming through that light colored plastic box
    … you might get a darker colored one, or paint that one or cover it with
    an opaque wrap to avoid growing algae in your water.?

  • Epic Gardening 2 years ago

    +Natasha Stagg You are right – but this one blocks light pretty well.
    Also, I just use this for starting seeds so if any algae grows, the seeds
    are ready to be transplanted to a new system in that time :)?

  • Anthony Reyes 2 years ago

    So can I just leave this on my lanai out side and let them germinate
    germinate that way? I run a hydroponics business servicing systems. So I
    replenish the plants when needed. This would work great.

    Please let me know ASAP.?

  • Epic Gardening 2 years ago

    +skunk spliff I’d drain a bit. I’ve noticed better results when some of
    the root is exposed to pure air. Won’t dry out because bubbles will be
    hitting it and keeping it moist, but it will get a nice supply of oxygen!?

  • lizmariposa1 2 years ago

    I thought spinach didn’t grow well in a small hydroponic system like this,
    because of its nutrition requirements.?

    Next time get a boom mic wtf …?

  • Peggy Berk 2 years ago

    I have a small indoor aquaponics setup (a Back to the Root AquaFarm) –
    almost everything spouts pretty quickly but many of the seedings never put
    their roots down into the water, the stems ager then too weak to support
    themselves and end up keeling over and dying when they are about 2″
    tall….on the other hand, I have a 31″ high Geneovese Basil growing there
    that has a zillion roots and produces crop after crop for me. The medium
    are small gravel like rocks which wick up the water from the plant bed
    (tank)… I’ve tried planting the seeds closer to the surface (where its
    drier) and a bit deeper (where the rocks are visibly moist, though not
    sitting in the tank water itself) but haven’t been able to figure out why
    some of the seedlings’ roots “find” the tank of water and drop roots into
    the tank and othes don’t and thus fail shortly after they spout…. Any
    ideas??

  • justgivemethetruth 2 years ago

    I’d disagree with the putting multiple seeds in each Rapid Rooter thing …
    you spend twice as much on seeds over time doing that, and seeds are
    expensive. These germinators usually have a lot of sites/netcups in them,
    so I think you are better off doing as many seeds as you need, and them
    maybe an extra one or two, or if you are not in a time crunch just retry on
    the RR’s that did not sprout. Just an opinion.?

  • lizmariposa1 2 years ago

    I am sad, because I want to watch this, but it has such a low volume. 🙁 ?

  • OrganicOps 2 years ago

    That container would be great for an aero cloner! Where did you get it? Or
    was this a kit??

  • mike cioka 2 years ago

    how big is the container and the net pots ? do you leave the plants their
    or you transplant them to another big container ? ?

  • Josep Bhard 2 years ago

    It doesn’t required lots of skill about gardening to start making your own
    hydroponics.?

  • Brittfield Beats 2 years ago

    What about chlorine? Also do you need a water sample? I know the alkalinity
    of the water can raise the pH is this offset by acidic fertilizers???

    The disadvantage of hydroponics is you need to pay for “plant food” or
    nutrition and supplements that can be costly.?

  • Medic Ken 2 years ago

    Dump the air stone and allow the bottom 1/4″ of the net pots to sit in the
    water. The plants will root and you will NEVER have to add water. Take a
    look at B.A Kratky method. 30day lettuce easy and zero maintenance?

  • Connor Widder 2 years ago

    What kind bin are you using? Where did you get it??

  • Devon Hooper 2 years ago

    Great video and very informative! Have you tried using any organic
    nutrients in your system? Check out my website at http://www.P13Organics.com. We
    have had great results with cucumbers, tomatoes and lettuce in deep water
    culture and dutch raft systems. Would you be interested in trying a
    sample? ?

  • Ken Rowe 2 years ago

    Strawberries like a lower level of nutrients than other plants. I’ve seen
    everbearing produce huge bumper crops on 400ppm of nutrients instead of
    what you had at 600 or higher. Next time use 1/2 to 1/3rd of what you
    typically use for nutrients. Also, start much earlier. You can start
    right around Feb 14th indoors and get some really good production within 60
    days from everbearing. Then they will taper off around middle of summer
    and start producing again at the end of summer and into fall all the way up
    to october!?

  • Theo Dake 2 years ago

    Hey Man, Great video! I might have an idea to help with your plants!
    well… for next season anyway. I also use shop lights but I know that the
    6500K lights are great for vegetative growth but they suck for flowering, I
    really makes a difference if you use a low temp bulb as well (I think mine
    is 2700K for flowering) you’ll know if its right because they have a slight
    reddish glow. So if your using shop lights just put one 6500K and one 2700K
    and you should see far better results for flowering plants. At least for
    leafy greens your setup is bang on lol. Best of Luck in the new season!!?

  • Brock Hughes 2 years ago

    Eh Bro! I’ve had such off and on success with strawberries I hate to offer
    any advice 🙂 I have noticed indoors john that some varieties do better
    with shorter photo periods and some don’t seem to care. I remember last
    year when I brought them in from out side they immediately started to
    flower and produce berries and I’m convinced it was the change in photo
    period so I’m thinking it may be worth looking at. The ones out side looked
    awesome eh 🙂 ?

  • Austin Family Gardening Channel 2 years ago

    I think you have found your variety. Big difference between the two.. I
    always end up with brown roots with my strawberries- i just stop worrying
    about the roots. You could try to stress your plants by reducing the hrs of
    light & trick them into forming berries- just an idea. Plants & roots look
    great. Looking forward to seeing how they do. Have a good one !

    Nice video +Indoor Hydroponix it’s cool when you can get the kids to help
    out. I’m looking into putting a few things indoors just to experiment. What
    do you think about the HO t5 lights. That’s one of the things I’m trying to
    figure out is what kind of lighting to use?

  • Eric White 2 years ago

    Nice John Hope you get lots more Strawberries. You’re right the other
    plants seem to be doing better.?

  • Kntryhart 2 years ago

    I have 6 each of Tristan and Loran variety in a hydroponic strawberry tower
    (check-out my video on them)…the Tristan seem to be better producers.
    Using Urban-Hydroponic strawberry 24-12-32 mixed to about 1000 TDS/pH 6.0.
    Also ordered 22 Eversweet bare-root strawberry plants, but all were dead
    when received. Good luck!?

  • bradzepfan 2 years ago

    unless I am mistaken your indoor and outdoor strawberry plants were
    different varieties. Couldn’t that alone explain why your indoor didn’t do
    as well as outdoor? Could you run that experiment again using a “control”??

  • fatoldladyinpjs 2 years ago

    I remember my mother planted strawberries when I was a kid. She told me
    not to expect a lot of berries until the second or third year.?
