Absorbing info, getting started . . .

by Reggie
(SF bay area, California)

I've been intrigued with the concept of hydroponics for some time, but am definitely launching into this now.

A friend suggested I go to the Maximum Yield Hydroponics expo in SF a few weeks ago, which I did. I must admit I was amazed at just how far hydroponics has developed since I first looked into this a few years ago!

Still going through my proverbial pile of catalogs, user guides . . . and lots of notes. My impression is that actually constructing the physical hydro system is doable, fairly straightforward.

Where it gets a bit more complex is determining which macro & micro nutrients, Ph control, and other chemistry aspects of the hydro process to decide on. I happen to live not far from a company called General Hydroponics, and various folks I know in the area actually use their products.

GH has been at this for over 30 years, have an extensive research greenhouse facility, so I'm sort of leaning in that direction.

However, I'm certainly open to any suggestions, and experiences, good or bad, with any variety of products people have tried.

OK, that's my question for the moment, am absorbing info, going through my pile of materials . . . many thanks for any and all responses.
