I have never seen a setup like that in real life. Don't look practical for indoor but man would something like that sure look cool! You have any pics of a hydro setup thats really like the one you illustrated?

Well i have gotten started on this
still need net pots. :sad:

I used 40 mm pipe for the thingo to drain the spent nutrients same for the port to top back up.
id rather used a lot smaller but thats all the hardware had.

once i get some net pots and aluminum tape i am done shit cost $30 a roll though, so yeah pics soon once i borrow a cam :tongue2:

Find a way to secure your airstone to the bottom of the bucket, but make sure it's removable. They need to be cleaned up every so often. If you don't secure them, they just flop around all over the bottom of the bucket.

Also, drill your hole for the air line just below the lid in the BUCKET, not through the lid. I learned that the hard way.

Hey thanks for the advice
yeah i had planed to make one out of a bit of PVC it wont float already tested it. :thumbup:

I plan to drill the holes on the side of the bucket about 2-3 cm underneath the lid.

so Premedman how did your DWC grow go ?

i don't believe so?  IIRC the roots are supposed to grow down towards the water?  I'm not too brushed up on my hydro though so i can't answer for certain.

if the water does not reach the pot then how do the plants get water before the roots reach the water?  do you have to keep the level higher in the beginning then lower it?
