Hey guys. I'm a recovering aquarium enthusiast and I'm going to be setting up an indoor hydroponics system with the equipment I have left over. I'm trying to do all of this with buying as little new things as possible... I have 2 pumps I could use to make a drip system, I have 2 air pumps (one of which with 2 outlets) and air stones i could use to make 3 seperate deep water culture systems, and I'm not sure which one I should try... Would a combination of the 2 work? Maybe plumb 3 containers together each with an airstone, and use my pumps to run drip lines from one of the containers to all the plants? Also the lighting I'll be using is a 4 bulb 48" t5 ballast i used for my saltwater tank to try and grow coral. I'm wondering if the light would be too intense? I have 2 54w 10000k daylight bulbs and 2 54w actinic bulbs, (they produce only the blue end of the light spectrum) which i can control seperately. Like I said I'm trying to go as cheap as possible so I was also wondering if anyone had any good ideas for diy net pots and growth media. Lastly, I know I'm going to have to buy some stuff, so I was wondering if anyone knows where to get quality stuff for cheap. Thanks and sorry for the long post. Have a great weekend!
