the time runs down on what we are growing, we are looking at harvesting
some greens! Greens in a few weeks is unbelievable, totally crazy, and
I know exactly what they were grown in.

You lights can be closer to the plants. Read up on the inverse square law. If you reduce the one on the right by half you will quadruple the amount of light the plants get. In your setup you can raise the lights as the plants grow. LED can be as close as 2", florescent maybe 4". It looks like you could put the plants closer together.
Luke, I have been working with the Kratky method in small containers and lettuce has explosive growth. If the light is intense, the red color comes out just like outdoor gardening. I also learned some varieties have a weak root structure for hydroponic while others are more suitable for a water garden. On a further note, I use Masterblend and mix it around 500 PPM to prevent nutrient lockup or lockout and my PH around 6.5 or a little less.
You've probably answered these questions before.. So do you just fertilize once per harvest? If yes, after you harvest, do you start with all new water and fertilize? Last do you have a link to where you got those lights?
I may have missed an earlier video, but do you leave ur seedlings in the rockwool? I'm running my forst nft system and i'm seeing some of the rockwool turning black and thos plants dont do well. also, what kind of luck if any have u had with spinach? i cant get it to hardly sprout, and those that do, dont live long
Hey MIG! I found this website on reddit, its called LeafVault. It is new like it just went up but it looks fun. It lets you post pictures about specific plants and track the performance so that all your viewers can see exactly when you watered and such. They seem to be focusing on vegetables only at the moment. It might be cool if you put your grow room experiments on there! Just thought I would make a suggestion. I got a 600w HPS for my grow room and I am growing tomatoes inside :D.
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.
+Sohpia Sophia because I did aquaponics last year, and I like experimenting with different methods. I also like to keep things simple. Hydroponics, at least this method I am doing is very simple and can make your life so much easier.
+HuwsNursery - Grow Organic Produce Inexpensively Thank you! I will be interested to see how it does when we convert the bed over to a surprise crop. ;) you will have to wait and see what we will be growing.
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 them.
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 .
+bt4b4 I discussed all of this in several videos. I can't keep saying the same thing in every episode. But I will answer your question now. I don't change the water. There is no need to, nothing organic is decaying or dying, therefor when the system is done, I just top it off, and start all over again. That simple.
