This has to be my most detailed planting video yet. This video takes us from building a set up, setting up drip emitters, mixing nutrients, adjusting pH and the first week of growth.

    I really like it when people get their children involved in gardening and hydroponics. Good video.

    Hi. I'm totally new to this method and indoor growing. COULD YOU BE MY LEADER? Lol!!!!!! 4real! I live in Philadelphia. Pa. Just released news, they've. been repacking non organic produce into organic packaging. smh. Sick of high produce pricing and GMO's. I know the tub's are easy to get. But I'll need the remainder of the supplies (pumps tubes nutrients etc) THANK YOU FOR YOUR VIDEOS AND KNOWLEDGE.

    Thanks bud for your time and effort. Hope you overcome your depression permanently, it can be pretty nasty illness. I just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed your video very much. I miss my pepers here in Colombia so I will try to grow them, smoke them and have me some stuffed chipotles the way my grandma used to make for chrismas when I was a child. Thanks again and keep yourself healthy, you have that beautiful little girl to live for.

  • keep water temp right and the roots should stay white

    Aloha John, interesting take on recirculating Hydroponics – I like it!!! Good job bro..

  • Joshua Moore 9 months ago

    John thank you for the inspirational, informative, and entertaining videos! I've been enjoying them for the last several months. I want to offer something back. I've used a similarly designed recirculating system before. I found some peppers get a pretty long roots system. Watch out for the pump sucking the roots into itself. I ended up using that system for strawberries instead. You just have to make sure the drippers drip only on the roots and don't touch the crown. Otherwise the crown rots.

    That GH stuff is great, it's just a totally decent hydro nute. The 1:2 micro to bloom ratio is pretty popular, you should see some good production off that.

    The hydro industry has done a decent job of mystifying this PH down stuff everyone is selling, so you can't blame people for seeing it as 'chemical', but all it is is phosphoric acid. Phosphoric acid is non-toxic and even used as a food ingredient for it's tangy flavor, much like the citric acid in lemon juice. My local hydro store also sells powdered citric acid as an alternative PH down product, they'll even let you do a taste test if you want, but it's very sour. Both products are non-toxic and completely safe to use in hydroponic systems. In fact, if you look at the bottle of FloraBloom, you can see that phosphoric acid is actually one of the ingredients.

    The powdered citric acid is actually a nice alternative I don't see a lot of people using, it's nice if only for the fact that it's a lot safer to have around. Spilling phosphoric acid could cause some damage, whereas the citric acid powder is completely safe to spill and you can just get it with the vacuum when you feel like it. I'd imagine people with pets and/or children (the clumsy?) would be interested in something less potentially harmful if spilled.

    I love the diversity going on this year. Learning a lot, thank you for all the information.

  • FesterWerks 9 months ago

    Really nice video John. Was glad to see the switch to drip from the stream. Great growth for only a week too. Looking really strong.

    Are you able to receive pictures and I can show you our set up.

    Awesome video very helpful information thanks a lot adorable kid

    Wow, best video so far of this season! Glad your spirits have revived. Mine too. You know what no one has covered so far in indoor hydroponics is how to safely set up and organize all the electrical plugins for lights, pumps, timers, etc so that it's safe and doesn't overload circuits. I'm trying to figure that out now with setting up 4 sets of 5 shelf metal mini greenhouses for multiple cfl bulbs, timers, and pumps.

    Remember that the GH products differ between the US and the european markets, so always check the bottles for recommendations.

  • Ashley Moffett 9 months ago

    From personal experience, I highly recommend putting in a small air stone. The water will become stagnant and gross. We tried without airstone a few months ago and we had to change water out and start fresh. Big difference since we put one in. Also plants look a teeny bit over watered.
