    This would be so much easier to watch if you didn't talk so fast. I had to watch it a few times in order to absorb the information. Nevertheless thanks.

    you've done a video on rock wool and Coco.. you should do a video for vermiculite (and perlite, growstones).

    your videos are always beautifully dense in information.

    I'm using smartpots and I rly love them. Also the taste of a grow in a good soil mix. But I would like to use the benefits of hydroponics. Could it be possible to use the benefits of soil and hydro together? I already have tested it for a week, with massive overwatering my Soil in the Smartpots and had also a massiv root growth outside the pots. They looked rly healthy and I had a good growth of my plants, without any overwatering damage, even my Soil was 24/7 moist and well watered . But I dont know if its worth or a good idea to invest in a Hydro System for Soil potting. The most people say its stupid and a waste of money, but the roots looked so good, they ware so long and white and I think this could be much better if the water was recycling. In my setting the water stood in my container, with my Smartpots.

    Best greetings from germany!

    I like that you don't play around, you add a touch of humor at times, but mostly quick and to the point. I don't have time to watch videos all night. Just give me the facts, and I can take it from there … just saying. I appreciate that you share you experience in hydroponics. I know I will make many mistakes, but with your guidance maybe I can avert a few.

    Is growing peppers with single-part nutrient solution possible in a hydroponic system (DWC)? I have jalapeno plant in normal hydroton using a single nutrient and it's doing ok. I'm interessted in switching to hydroponic with DWC. But I don't really want to mess around with several nutrients. So would single part nutrient in DWC also do the job in an ok manner? (I know that it cannot compete to multi part nutrient solutions)

    and the caves with bats in third world countries that they rape for bat guano are greeting their eco systems all fucked up.

    please don't recommend peat!!!!! We don't produce peat in bogs anymore. which means it's in not sustainable. please make a video exspalining this to your fallowers like many other have.
