Anyone ever try deep water hydroponics - I think I am going to give it a go - I just ordered everything I need to do a 18 plant setup

My first wife and I had a big hydroponics setup for years. I was completely amazed at how fast everything grew and the quantity most of the plants produced. we used a mixture of deep water and what I called pass by watering. The pass by was a system where all the pots hung from chains and then the nutrient matter was dripped into the top pot and watered the others as the solution passed by on it's way to the pots below then into a trough to be recirculated. In a 40' X 68' long green house we could grow the equivalent of an 11 to 13 acre traditional farm.

That sounds awesome - I am limited on space and I figured this could be a good option

Wow! If you've got any pics of your former setup it would be cool to see some of them.

I remember an article, maybe 40 years ago :shock: , about a trend in New York City, where folks would rent an apartment and set up tanks, a special high intensity light on a motorized track which was set up with a timer--moving back and forth to simulate the sun's movement, and an automatic nutrient pump, and then leave the apartment alone for weeks at a time over months' long periods.

Finally got discovered as aroma, and then power usage, was noticed.

Folks were shocked that someone would pay New York rents just to grow marijuana.

I was, naively , surprised that someone would go to that much trouble.

duh. #-o
