We’re checking in on the Kratky hydroponic lettuce. This is the setup that doesn’t use any type of aeration or water pump. Therefore, no electricity is needed. Things are looking great, with almost basketball sized heads of lettuce. I’ve said this before, it’s a case of “Set it, and forget it”. It is so simple that anybody can do it. And you don’t need a 4×8 plywood box either. This can be done in much smaller totes with lids to support the plants. I continue to be very impressed with the quality of the vegetables and plan to use this setup a lot more in the future. If you missed the original video where I discussed exactly how Dr. Kratky’s system worked, here is the link: Also, just a reminder for Friday nights show on, show time is here : at 9 pm est.

    You have so much helpful information. I've grown hydro lettuce using a raft system in the past. Would you mind letting me know what variety/type of lettuce was grown as shown in this video. Thank you!

    Love this system… just one question for outdoor set up… when it rains the tub will flood… choice of tops that won't collect water may be a concern.

    If you can use the Kratky method with a small Rubbermaid container is it possible to use the same method with Dutch buckets to grow tomatoes? YouTube has lots of videos on Dutch buckets with recirculating water systems and lots of others on the Kratky method, but I haven't seen any on using the Kratky method to grow tomatoes. I know tomato plants probably get too big for the floating raft, but what about the Kratky method with a Dutch bucket system?
