I was accually surfing the web trying to gain information and insight on irrigating an outdoor garden and ended up on a hydroponics site and the pictures intrigrued me. So now I am intrested in learning all about it. I spent several more hours reading over several hydroponic sites and it seams there are many diffrent types as well as many choices for how to configure each type.
I am intrested in trying to do a diy setup but I want it to be very buget oriented and accually very compact since it will be my first experiment and space is some what limited till the greenhouse gets purchased.
I was thinking something simple like maybe the size of a ten gallon aquarium and around the same capacity if possible just big enough for 2 or 3 plants as an experiment. My next question is lighting it seams there are many types also I was wondering if something like a 24 inch flourescent could be used and would it benefit from throwing a grow light or plant light available at pet stores for aquariums in the fixture.
any help tips and guidence would be greatly appreciated like I said this will be my first and after reading I am well Confused
