Thought about Hydro for a few years...think it's time to give it a try. Saw a video about using a tote, Dixie cups, air pump and growing rocks so I figured I'd give it a try. Want to try some Veggies. Lettuce, Celery and Peppers are my first choices. I have an old 150watt HPS fixture and have started building it.
Two problems so far. The tote has expanded so the lid won't fit. Going to try a hold-down strap to squeeze the tote. The drain valve I installed is leaking. I guess the washers on each side weren't enough to seal it.
No-one said it was going to be easy!
