    Ha. I might try out the pudding cups as well – I've been meaning to pick up a few things at the grocery store for hydroponics. The pudding cups would make great "net cups", if I punch a few holes into them. (I have a small plastic ice cream container that is pretty perfect for the purposes here…

    I'm using a small version of this (a drinkable yogurt container) for a cut green onion. It's ridiculously expensive now for a small bunch of green onions, and this would be a great way to restart them. (They grow well with just water, but I think adding nutrients to the water will be ten times better…)

    You probably won't need the air stone if you can just submerge the very bottom of your net cup.

    I've gotta take some from work to try this!  Great heads up!

    You have inspired me to try a field trial with this using a Kratky style set up. The first part of my expiriment has been running for 13 days now with no algae. I have posted to the Home Garden Field Trials community on Google + looking for more people to participate. Check it out, you may have inadvertently started something big!

    Thanks for your movie.
    Also, I have some secrets to grows up to 10 x the plants, by 50 % time, with healthier plants, while the "fish" carry out all the work…”

    right now i have a sweet banana pepper growing on a window sill…. in a mini dwc… no lights just window light i dont expect anything from it…other than to grow and be a plant on a window sill lol…. but i am thinking about trying kale under cfls on a shelf… 

  • mediamaker2000 1 year ago

    Interesting! Kale is a big plant by comparison. What kind of peppers did you grow?

  • nishavenue84 1 year ago

    i did the same with the green bottle… but i had a romaine lettuce and a peppers in mine but they are receiving nothing but window sill light… i think ill try red russian kale now,,,,

    I would start with hydro lettuce as it's the easiest and most forgiving. You can use a yoghurt cup and pea gravel for a medium to save money. A $5-6 air pump, line and air stone would be all you needed for air. Use a tiny amount of nutrients in the water if you have no meter. I used a meter and then later didn't worry about it as it did fine when I got busy doing other things. If the plant doesn't produce fruit, you can get by without a meter as long as you use very little nutrients.

    im at the beginning stages of starting my own hydroponic vegetables, but due to my lack of income, I cannot purchase all of the tools and nutrients that some say are needed and necessary. With yours, did you test the ph level, or did you leave that up to chance? I dont have a meter, and all I have is a water soluble plant food with micronutrients, should I wait and save to get what I am missing?

    Thank you!!

    It was Pure Blend Pro Grow. I am using it to do a hydro celery experiment right now. Does good. Thanks for watching and commenting!


  • therealbasskiller 1 year ago

    what nutrients are you adding to the water in your bubbler?

  • mediamaker2000 1 year ago

    As I found out accidentally. The green color of the plastic filters the light in such a way as to inhibit it's growth. I mention that on another video about the hydro lettuce in that same container after it dawned on me LOL The connection was made when I saw that greenhouses sometimes use green lights to light them at night so people can work on plants but not interfere with the plants normal photosynthesis periods. Thanks for the comment!

    cool visual effect, but how come no algae?

  • mediamaker2000 1 year ago

    @kookingkorner Thanks! I'll have another video coming out in a week or so that has something similar but in a larger size. I hope to have a new video up tonight of what I think is a cool idea with other plastic vessels.

  • kookingkorner 1 year ago
