Jeremy Sobles: Great build. I suggest washing any rocks off before putting them into your
aquaponics bed though! :)
ENG AHMED ADLY MOHAMMED HASSAN: I really enjoyed your video.
Mark McHugh: Shouldn't that be the STARberry tower?
Anne Rayburn: OK, I finally found it. My home depot has them. Oatey 4 in. Mechanical
Plastic Test Plug I purchased the heat gun yesterday. I love this design.
Liquid-Skin: Amazing! Thanks
Gino Smit: Yeps, like it..!
Ryan Cook: very nice - i would have had 2 towers coming up from the base though.. and
joined them at the top - i.e. TWICE as many plants. But NICE video - thanks
Michael C: Well done strawberry tower and great informative video, thanks! Michael
Brenton Collas: Nice video Paul. thanks for the instructions. How is your system going how
7 months later?
Paul McHugh: BigFuzz, there's a wealth of knowledge on the internet. Good luck and good
eating! BTW the Food Forest has, by far, out performed the Aquaponics
System to date! That will change this winter because the food in the
Aquaponics System will continue to grow due to the Deep-Water-Culture
effect of maintaining the temperature during cold months.
Daniel Demetriou: Just brilliant Paul. Thanks =)
Liquid-Skin: This music is amazing I've never herd anything like it. Who is the band?
Dave Paulison: As long as it's new and hasn't had any poop in it.
star2067: best idea I've seen so far,with the gun heater and the pvc pipe
Lisa Johnson: I am wondering. What do you use to keep the insects and bugs from eating
your plants ?
DAVISEDWARD88: Totally awesome man.Best "how to" video yet. Will the same concept work for
a hydroponic system?
Sammy Aboud: I would like to see if your strawberry tower gave you strawberries and how
good they produced. Did you video your plants after this first one?
tappakeggaday1: I really enjoyed your video, I hope you have an update on the strawberry
tower when they start producing and have spread out downwards on the tower
making the runners. if you see the leaves yellowing I have seen people
using something called coleated iron which is not supposed to hurt the fish
but will help the plants.really look forward to an update video and again
Paul McHugh: Blue Gill are in the tank. They grow on their own in my ponds. I'm posting
an Aquaponics Update now. Should be up for viewing in about 10 hours. It's
packed full of info. Welcome to the channel.
TheCapstone100: great idea thanks for sharing
Bike Man Dan: Is PVC waste pipe food safe?
robert horne: also dont need costly plugs just a electrical box cover its blue just
silicone in and your good to go less thn 3 bucks
footstomper1: when sealing off the tee with plunger why not cover the opening with
plastic then push in a 3inch piece of pipe to jam it in there.. job done...
no need to lose yer fingers using a chop saw ;0)
PROTHRASHER: Paul McHugh - The name of the song is called "Making Me Nervous" by the
artist, Brad Sucks!! :)
PROTHRASHER: What type of fish are you using for the biologics in the pond or tank ? -
Totally awesome Strawberry Tower - Please do a video of how they came out
if you havent already, just subbed :)
Matt Miskinnis: OMG, thank you! I have been wanting to build a strawberry tower and get
into aquaponics. I've done some hydroponics and loved it, you have totally
inspired me to get it into aquaponics and give it a shot. What kind of fish
are you using and how many are you using? I'm going to get an IBC tote for
the fish, do you know of any way to get cheap food grade totes by any
chance? I see the tops make great beds.
HEOEvgeny: I conceive an idea to attempt growing a strawberry in a greenhouse in the
winter.Browsing available info before I even start to do something pertain
to.I might keep in touch with you.By means of production as I have a
commercial plans to achieve in near future.What method is most productive
by amount of fruits per bush yours or conventional in the soil with or
without pots usage?
Adam Harris: Great job.
FatChanceTheCouchDog: Frogs=$ at pet stores. Be aware that some are toxic to touch. Figured
you're getting money thrown at you anyway, might as well claim it?
jkdubs2: Great job. Can i ask why u need a strawberry tower as opposed to just
planting them in the beds? New to Aquaponics myself. Have a channel if you
want to comment or throw some constructive criticisms my way. Thanks.
Amy Luthien: Pretty nifty job! Thanks for sharing :)
Paul McHugh: I built this because my Mom was asking about it. This was an instructional
video for her really. I'll tell you this, the strawberry plants love it. I
think it's because they can sip as much water as they want and at the same
time "breath" all the oxygen they need. Once they're settled in, they'll
reward you with a great tasting treat every morning.
PROTHRASHER: @ liquidxskin and @Paul McHugh - The name of the song is called "Making Me
Nervous" by the artist, Brad Sucks!! :)
hrprada: It's very disturbing to see the ubiquitous PVC being used for supposedly
organic (edible) gardening. Sadly, few people seem to be aware of the link
between PVC and dioxin contamination.
dhermitmorse: It seems like there is a lot of space between each strawberry plant. Is
that an optimal distance for a tower or could a person make the indents
closer to fit more indents on the tower if they wanted?
Jorxxen: the screen is chaking
Paul McHugh: Yea, Youtube asked if I wanted them to fix the shaky screen. I guess that's
how they do it. In one way, it's easier to watch. Got to take the good with
the bad I guess.
HEOEvgeny: Did I miss the time when you put some soil in the orifice on the tower or
just a gravel? Thank you for respond if available.
Paul McHugh: That's what's great about these systems. No soil just gravel. You can even
use vermiculite when growing the seeds but be sure to use the fish water!
jkdubs2: Well thanks for the info. Great ideas Im finding. I have my own channel if
u want to check it out with alot of my own Aquaponics start up build in
sickbastard151: dude awsome.. im gonna invest in this.. greetings from the netehrlands
Anne Rayburn: Hey Paul, I have watched your video several times and decided I want to
incorporate several of these towers into my system (which is still in the
planning stages). I have searched and searched for the end plug at both
Lowes and Home Depot, as well as on line and just can't find it. Can you
tell me exactly what it is called or what department you actually found it
in at Lowes? Thanks and a great job.
Paul McHugh: The problem with Hydroponics is that you've got to keep adding chemicals. I
don't like that part. This system, once established requires nothing. You
simply feed the fish. Good part is that the fish eventually feed you. My
Blue Gill taste great.
Paul McHugh: Not sure of the band but it is open-source music that I found on the
internet. I finally learned my lesson by posting copyrighted music. There
aren't too much in the way of open- source music so you should be able to
find some like this one. Enjoy
Erick Argueta: amazing video, thank you!
Isc Multimedia: Very impressive video, will be making a strawberry tower early next year
Paul McHugh: They all should be food grade. They're used once then sold. I've gotten
some as cheap as $80 per tank. Good luck! And have fun...
Paul McHugh: The vertical distance is trial and error. I've found that the plants grow
up -- reaching for the sun so it's best to give them room.
