Last spring I gave a tour of a new high tunnel we were in the process of outfitting with Kratky tanks and showed the assortment of crops we grow in there. One row in the center is a bato bucket setup for cucumbers. The tanks have lettuce, basil, boc choy, swiss chard, arugula, and water cress.

    Nice setup, and your system looks great! Are you using plywood covered by landscape fabric for your tank tops?

    OK, what do I call you? I can’t pronounce the name of your channel. Your system looks amazing and I subbed you! The only thing I could suggest for your farm is that you change from rock wool to oasis. Rock wool doesn’t do quite as well for me. Plus it doesn’t biodegrade well. Oasis is made from a potato starch and I get about 99% Germination rate from it. I also compost it with whatever I throw in the compost from my system. Can’t wait to see more. I used to use the floating raft system until I found this trough system. The floating raft system is cheaper than the system I use since it uses very little electricity. But it seems my turnaround is faster on the plants with moving water. Take care and God bless. Chuck
