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. 🐟 🌱🍅 Rob Bernard Kratky Academia page with downloads, And YouTube channel, MHPGardener’s Kratky clips, Jeb Gardener’s Kratky clips, Subscribe Here► Would be great to see you come along & say “G’Day” when we post a clip.

    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,

    How would you recommend some one with no experience start?

    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.

    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.

    Keep a tiny fish tank pump in them circulating the fluid and you will never get root problems.

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

    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.
