First Time Growing Awesome Results!

by Jason H
(Florida)





So I began this out of frustration. Growing vegetables outside in Florida is difficult due to the bugs. So I decided to give Hydroponics a try. My system is a basic Rubbermade type unit. Four 3" netpots and Hydroton as the media. I have a 350 gph pond pump and one large airstone. The lighting is homemade. I am currently using four 100 watt cfl bulbs. Started at 18/6 and now have switched to 12/12. If I change anythiong the the next round it would just be to add more light. I am using a kind of Aero/Hydro hybrid setup in that the roots are sprayed with sprinklers. I let it run 24/7 and have had no issues with root rot. I have included pictures and would love to get some feedback from others. All in all I am amazed at the rate of growth. Thank you in advance for any and all input/suggestions.

Florida Hydro
by: Deb

I'm looking at starting a hydro garden in SoFLo. Would love any input! Are you in central or north Fl? It just seems South Florida is a bug's best friend. Starting this for a school so I'm going big & got to get it right first time.
