The hydroponic FAWN concept is the exact same, but in tight quarters and shortened platforms on two levels. I had to plumb it differently because of those changes required to fit into the Winter Greenhouse. I managed to do that and everything is looking good! I am growing Tomatoes, Peppers, Squash, Broccoli, Cabbage, Lettuce, Cucumbers, Corn, and Beans in a hydroponic re-circulating system I call FAWN which stands for “Flowing, Aerated, Wicking, Nutrient”. It’s time to get growing. I love chatting with folks and answering questions. If you enjoy my videos, please like, comment and subscribe!

I have a hydroponic greenhouse. I grow in a system I call FAWN which is a modified hydroponic drip system. The media I grow in is aged rice hulls with parboiled rice hulls mixed. This has proven to be a great mix for me. I use Masterblend fertilizer as my nutrients to every plant grown. I’ve been pretty successful with my setup growing hydroponic tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, squash, cucumbers, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, turnip greens, corn, potatoes, kale, carrots, beets, spinach, onions, leeks, and even okra! Everything a gardener would desire. I also dabble in other areas like growing in raised beds, growing in a ground garden, grafting, pond activities, growing fruits, and other projects on the homestead. Thank you so much for stopping in!

    super cool, thanks for the update. I'm doing rain gutters in both of my greenhouses. The only affordable gutters we have here are the k style, which are kinda awkward, but they work. Also I realized that the end caps are ridiculously priced, so in my cheapness I just created end caps out of the gutters themselves. Should have videos up in the next week to two weeks.

    You're having too much fun. I just emptied my GH to get rid of the bugs.

    A lot of work! Are you keeping the plants you start in there in the Winter Greenhouse? Or is it just a jump start to then move them to the Summer Greenhouse? Or both? Just nosey….hee hee. You can plant tropicals in the Winter Greenhouse ooooooo.

    Thanks. Starting to think what I will do this year. Giving me food for thought. Starting to get the itch one more time. Another 30 days before I start seed where I am. Will see how yours do before I start! Good job.

    Hydroponic is such an awesome system and method of gardening.  It's unfortunate that I don't have much plumbing and electrical knowledge 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

    Looks great, Brent! I am wondering if the broccoli will get enough light on the backside of the buckets.
