    it. ?

    SO what are you using for your nutrient solution. Was it your own mix or
    some store bought product??

    Luke, Hi!
    Why did you decide to do hydroponics (not aquaponics)? ?

  • Matt Compton 5 years ago

    wow great job luke!?

    Another possible thing you might want to invest in is ratcheting light
    adjusters. You can buy them in two packs from amazon which has the best
    deal they are very easy and great to use. Just watch the weight ratings on

  • bt4b4 5 years ago

    Do u change ur water? Please tell us more, not just going over the diff
    lettuce…. Thanx?

  • faaodar62 5 years ago

    Luke you keep saying that your kratky setup is non-organic. Is this
    something you choose to do because my kratky set-ups are all organic??

  • Growing Things 5 years ago

    Great job Luke !!!?

  • silvertopaz72 5 years ago


  • faaodar62 5 years ago

    Ok Luke, your killing me here brother. If you are using rain water as your
    source water and OMRI approved organic nutrients why is this not considered
    organic? There are literally thousands of hydroponic growers who use this
    process everyday. I understand that we are not using physical organic
    matter because this is a soilless medium but the process is organic. By the
    way your set up looks great. Maybe I will get the space someday to do
    something similar. ?

  • PREPFORIT 5 years ago

    O M G it happened again .
    I orfered some led grow lights from eb*y and the authorities came to my
    door with the delivery person!
    Of course I still had some carolina reaper peppers growing and some rainbow
    chard. They went through everything. And even damaged my vegie plants 🙁
    Dam right im seeking compensation !
    Oh good info video as always .?

  • Jeffrey Jocsak 5 years ago

    Nice setup. I have the same equipment as you and I was wondering why you
    only use 1/2 the amount of nutrients throughout the whole grow process as
    the container suggests??

    Hi Ronald, I am looking into growing like this. I notice all of these
    hydroponic setups use a lot of plastic components. Is there any issue with
    the myriad of plastic chemicals in these containers leeching into the water
    and then leeching into the plants? I’m considering a custom built
    stainless steel trough type setup because of this. Maybe I am being
    paranoid, but BPA, PVC, polycarbonate, etc… not sure I want my plants
    drinking that. Maybe you can shed some light on this. Thanks!?

    How many hours a day are you running your pump? ?

  • RayneSaltair 5 years ago

    I have all these amber medication cups I drill holes in. Just too cheap to
    buy but I will have to watch and see if there are enough holes in them.

  • Linda Kiefer 5 years ago

    If you raise the water level to the bottom of the net pots to start with
    and let the plants grow you don’t need the air stone. It’s called the
    Kratky method. With lettuce, by the time the plants are mature they have
    used up the water and the roots are also at the bottom of the container. A
    set and forget method!?

  • David Kwok 5 years ago

    Hi, it is a very informative video. Would you be able to list the dimension
    of piping and fittings. It will save me many experiementation to get it
    right. cheers?

  • Gideon Gardens 5 years ago

    Nice setup! Thanks for sharing. Happy New Year!?

  • SurviveWithMe 5 years ago

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHOWING ME THIS STEP! All the other vids I’ve seen
    either want to show how to build the system, or show what the mature plants
    look like, or they just talk to explain without showing this step. Being
    new to gardening, I was completely lost about how to get started. I even
    lost a bunch of seeds thinking I could grow plants from seed (germinate, I
    guess) right in the system.?

    good set up?

  • HylianSpirit 5 years ago

    How much do these yield per harvest, and is it complicated keeping a
    harvest cycle going so that you have access to fresh greens whenever??

  • Tony Insua 5 years ago

    Hi, is there a specific reason the trays are spaced out so far apart and
    evenly? You have 8 on the unit. Could you not fit more plants on your
    hydroponic system? Thanks in advance.?

    What direction (north, south, east, west) window should I place them? I
    have been thinking about purchasing a grow light but I’m not sure which one
    to purchase. Do you have any recommendations (possibly one in the $50-$70
