    Yes, another awesome video I would like to do a similar sort of channel based in South Africa and I don't mind admitting that You have given me a good few Ideas to work with. My problem is I am Camera shy

    The issue I saw with the video was that you added tap water to the lower tray then soaked you upper tray into it. Then you separated them and dumped the tap water out, then placed the upper tray on top of the empty lower tray and set it in the grow light. The video never shows that you put any nutrient fluid into it. Yet at the end of the video you pull the upper tray off and the bottom tray is filled with nutrient solution.
    It gives incomplete instructions.

    Awesome vid mate! These little projects are the golden ones for the masses! A lot of folk have their own methods of growing seedlings but few have so many great ideas for germinating and starting their seeds!

    You have absolutely found the solution I have been looking for. In regards to pulling out the roots when they have grown through so far you may have more success and loose less roots if you float the tray in some rain water – it seems to help the roots untangle and move through. Love your videos.

    It would be nice if you could cut the bottom out almost completely, put something cheap like tissue paper inside the cell that holds water. So when you pull the plants the roots don't get damaged
