This is a follow-up video showing the state of the platform to date. I’m keeping my eye on the final prize being production. It’s a great space-saving method I undertook bouncing off my wicking experiments. I love chatting with folks and answering questions. If you enjoy my videos, please like, comment and subscribe!

Share your gardening thoughts and pictures! https://www.facebook.com/c3voyage/ . A little about my setup. I have a hydroponic greenhouse. I grow in a system I call FAWN which is a modified hydroponic drip system. The media I grow in is aged rice hulls with parboiled rice hulls mixed. This has proven to be a great mix for me. I use Masterblend fertilizer as my nutrients to every plant grown. I’ve been pretty successful with my setup growing hydroponic tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, squash, cucumbers, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, turnip greens, corn, potatoes, kale, carrots, beets, spinach, onions, leeks, and even okra! Everything a gardener would desire. I also dabble in other areas like growing in raised beds, growing in a ground garden, grafting, pond activities, growing fruits, and other projects on the homestead.

    LOL I'm at 1:03 and can't stop laughing. LOL After the 2nd time I thought "will there be a third?" and there sure was. 🙂 Thanks for leaving that in at the beginning. It made this video unique for me because I've never seen a video with the "bloopers" at the beginning. Now on to watch the progress…and thanks for sharing your gardening methods!

    Fantastic looking plants. Do you think these verticals will work with lettuce and spinach as space saving techniques. Are these 2 inch elbows you are using, I would love to try this and make one as my experiment to my collection of hydroponic testing, When I do I will let you know my results. I just love your channel.

    Looked like the plants got smaller the further down the towers. Do you think that's a sun or nutrient issue? I know you can't wick up the towers but have you pretty much gotten away from bottom wicking on everything?

    Ok where is the jug of shine? All those bloopers at the start but not show the jug? Burp… Once again the man has proven why he is the brains of these operations! Dang those plants are looking awesome brother! I'm sure you will figure out the bottom ones in time. I am amazed how well everything is growing in those small pipes. Can't wait to see them tore the end. Monsters I tell ya! As always my friend thanks for sharing with us!

    Darn everything is Gorgeous!!! This is fantastic! But…… one problem. Brussels Sprouts! They will never be able to stand up in the small tube, they are super heavy, and the stem gets Huge! I can't wait to see how everything works out, but Brussels sprouts do get thick, and I really think they need a lot more than that small tube to grow. Even the stem in the other pipe will eventually get so big it will be larger than the pipe. I pray you prove me wrong, but take a look on youtube at the Brussels sprouts in the videos. I've seen them grow, and once they get started, they get big when you least expect them to. You could put something up to hold them up I guess, but I think they would outgrow the tube first. Sure hope they grow anyway, and they end up making me all wrong. Bless, Sheila
