Question about my hydroponics?
    #371707 - 02/23/10 07:46 PM (6 years, 9 months ago)

I made a small hydroponic system for the first time today. Anyways its in a container that is see-through. Does it matter if the roots are exposed to light? Do I need to cover the container up?

Cover them roots up.

Light exposure in the reservoir tank is not only bad for the roots but also promotes algae growth in the water.

Always strive to keep the roots and nutrient solution from light leaks.

Yeah cover them. Having the container and any of the hosing clear (something that I myself like) is gonna be more work to maintain then its worth.

Agreed, my system is for the most part transparent and it's very cool to be able to see what's going on but a very large amount of cash has gone to fighting bacteria and algae because of this. :shrug:

Do you have any ideas? Give me something to work with other than dimensions, still too vague.

Do you have any equipment on hand? What kind of light do you plan on fitting in there.

Ask and you shall receive
