G’Day Folks. Here’s a look at how I’ve started to grow some veggies using a small Kratky hydroponic system on our deck.
This system is a bit of a stop gap measure until we get the aquaponics & soil gardens sorted out after renovation.

Hope you enjoy this gander at the Kratky system.
Cheers all & Happy Growing. 🐟 🌱🍅

    i use a pool noodle to put the plants in. cut 1" thick and then cut another one to quarter it for a wedge to hold plant in the center of 1st foam plant holder…

    Hi Rob,
    I've watched the video a couple of times now, the wife and I have decided that we are going to try this this winter along with our vegepod experiment. I've already bought some more led lights to grow with.
    Best regards,

  • Paul Glitsch

    Great clip, it seems like you've tried just about everything over the years. Would it be possible to do a "lessons learned" or similar clip on all of the trade-offs and recommendations for different growing systems you've built? For example, what plants might do better in a root pouch vs aquaponics, or how do you decide what to put in a wicking bed? Also, I remember the straw bale gardening, what was the end result of that? Overall great job, thanks again for all your tutorials.

  • Joe Pacholik

    First class Kratky operation going on Rob, with a fantastic place to sit and observe the plants growing. If you would like to try Kratky micro greens, check out Mike VanDuzee. Take care.

  • My Cool Moral Lay Ha

    What are the nutrients made out of? It's why I find aquaponics so appealing because I know where the ferts come from

  • Mountain Man Philippines

    Good day mate… cheers from Philippines.. I just uploaded my Aquaponics supplys arrived video.. I wish you could view it and if im missing anything…id like your profesional opinion of what I might need to add. Not trying to click bate here…just looking for your opinion. Trying to build a stellar system…Thanks and blessed day.

  • Sharon Parker

    Thank you for sharing this, I now know why my first season did not do well as I had used full strength solution which I bought from a hydroponic store. I did have trouble with the chilli plants as they grew bigger as they needed to be stalked. I am going to try again.

  • Neil Calliou

    That's a nice little set up there Rob. It'll work out, till you can get that new aquaponics design built . And fired up! Take care man!
