Did this video help you?

Trong Dung: The issue with hydroponics is you must shop for "plant food" or nutrients and supplements which are pricey.

Edgar Smittenheighnjenkson: :(

Jay Yew, M.D.: Nice build video. I think you need a separate air pump and airstone. As for the cover, you might want to try some foam/styrofoam insulation. They come in sheets with one side is shiny metallic cover. It has the advantage that it actually floats, but is also completely impenetrable to light.

marshall reagan: I think you will need some net-cups to put the rockwool in or the water may float the rockwool cubes down the chute toward the downspout. check out mhpgardening on u tube.

Leonard K. Pullins: Hydroponics is a great system but it have some drawback, you need to purchase some "plant food", nutrients and supplements that may be high-priced. Before making any hydroponics system, you must look at the advantage of aquaponics system, which can automate 95% of work.

firestarter147: silver foil?

rickvanman: @WoodyNFla34482 I generally use 'ionic hydroponics nutrients' - you can buy them in bottles and you just add a small quantity to your reservoir every now and again. There are several different versions including Grow, bloom and boost. However, a few weeks ago I tried adding some standard miracle grow plant food to my resoviour and my lettuce went nuts! I guess the trick is to experiment and see what works for you.

Ascension Series: @rickvanman That is correct BPAs ;) There is still toxic effects even with cold water but not as much. Polystyrene products are faily safe. Aside from BPA there are also Chlorides to be aware of in plastics and I am not sure which plastics release them. And if you are promoting any growing tips I would also suggest promoting organics as much as possible without a focus on high nitrogen fertilization as it is said that nitrogen creates high nitrates in the foods which are very cancerous.

TheLecturer101: search hydro grow rooms. you will find the finest and most efficent and resourceful tips and info. there is on the topic. about the algae cover up problem, (shout out to High Times Magazine) you could use a white plastic fence post (round or square) and just cut holes in spots where you want to insert a net basket or pot...that way you dont have to wory about covering the light at all...you should check out aeroponics if you havent yet.

Özil .gotbig: what is the point with Hydroponic System? why should i build one? (=

majorcassidy: Bye a air pump and air stone and put it in the container with your so lotion

TheTrivettsworld: MIRACLE GROW IS THE BEST FOR HYDROPONICS WHEN THE PLANT U ARE GROWING IS ABOUT 5WEEKS OFF FRIUTING OR FLOWERING ALSO IF U BUY A CF TRUNCHEN AND HAVE URE SOLUTION AROUND 950 CF THEN URE PLANTS WILL LOVE U FOR EVER

wyldyogi: dude what are you doin cutting plastic without goggles... if that catches it explodes all over the place

Andrew Bobbin: use black pipe etc as this will stop fungi

boiledbones: Use a fish aquarium air pump with a long bubbling air stone. The PVC would word better and easier than the rain gutters, the cost should be less also. My concern would be the heat from the sun. It may heat the pipe and damage the plants if the water wasn't continuously running during the day to cool it.

bobster8z: Hey rick i was think either take PVC pipe and the exact same thing and drill whole in it thats how i have mine works great but i dont use the little balls i have them in pot the root grow throughout the pipe and set the pump to go off every 6 hours for 30 minutes to flow and make the PVC go off to the left and off to the right so hang a light over it and it will all get a resonable amount of light

M LEET: I don't know about your pump specifics, but as the theory goes, you should be able to connect multiple pumps in series to pump water higher. You would have to check your pump's suction pressure rating and make sure it's less than the discharge pressure (units of "head" or "feet") And of course add the values of all preceeding pumps, if you go with more than two, when making these analysis.

F. St-Roch: could have cover them with alluminium foill . it block 100% light

lovingmygarden: Hello Rick, you really did a great job on that homemade hydroponics system. It's really nice to know that you're able to grow a lot different crops with it. Regarding the tomato plants that you mentioned, I would assume that they probably need more supply of light in order to thrive well. Maybe you could adjust their "daytime" cycle a bit. Best of luck!

Jason Gaddie: Couldn't you just use PVC, drill cup hole

Jenna Bobenna: The use of gutters is an interesting one. Seems like a good space saving idea if it can be pulled off. I'm curious how much the gutter pieces cost...

JOHNNYSschool: Use PVC pipes and baskets with perlite... A lot less work then ur doing

dutstinroach: instead of green plastic use mylar it is cheap and highly reflective

Endrikh Darkvine CXVI: so i could grow veggies n stuff without a garden in my app with this? it really doesnt take any space at all, interesting :)

kellyhose4: @kellyhose4 in the bottom of a swimming pool it is 12' deep and the water weighs 8.33 pounds per gallon there is 5.2 psi of pressure on the bottom.. If you took a peice of pipe that was 1" diameter and 12 feet long and filled it with water weighing 8.33 pounds per/gal the pressure would also be 5.2 psi it does not matter the diameter.here is the formula..... weight of fluid pounds per gal X .052 X HEIGHT OF FLUID= PSI ..... .052 IS A CONSTANT FOR PSI PER/FT i HOPE THIS HELPED.

idaman112: @1987iantaylor weed

aerofart: One thing I can think of straight off is the possibility of sagging of the channels. You may want to start thinking about reinforcing the channel by securing it to square-channel steel bar or to a piece of lumber running along its length or rigging a couple of vertical posts at the back of the assembly just like your other vertical lumber, only in the center of the assembly.

rickvanman: @SidneyBou see my gardening and hydroponics playlist :o)

Bryon Kavanagh: you should put an airstone in the nutrient reservoir.....also, i don't know what is available in the uk, but black trashbags cut into strips would do well to block light on the top of your gutters or 1/4 in insulation (expanded polystyrene)

rickvanman: @AscensionSeries Did you mean BPAs? Yeah I did wonder about that when I built it, then was led to understand that the release of the offending chemicals only come about through severe temperature change in the plastic - eg - it is heated up. As the temperature of the systen remains fairly stable, I figured there wasn't much likelihood of BPS being an issue here. I could, of course be wrong.

opinion anonn: @rickvanman what about weed?

sherd0rDied: Thanks for the info. I want to make a hydroponics system soon and this really helps.

daviude: u freaking talk to much buut respect for the vid :D

831gothatrope: your use of gutter equipment gave me some awesome new ideas

yammer1345: @WoodyNFla34482 THIS IS PART 6, forgot to label the others Tips for Making Hydroponic Nutrients 1. Use a large and clean bowl for mixing the trace elements. 2. Use a mortar and pestle to crush pebbly elements. 3. Add powdered trace elements in the last step and mix everything together gently.

TransformedMan: Loving the music.....

rickvanman: @layedout72 I hear standard CFL's are cheap and good all-rounders

geekay16: maybe you can use pond foil ;)

tbone66100: how do i watch the video?

rickvanman: @bkpickell In my subsequent videos I actually convert to an ebb and flow - works much better :o)

jrtwiss: air stones

mechmusician: here's an idea. if you're a goddamn beginner, stfu and let pro's teach. i don't want to look up how to do something and find some jackoff who just started. if you want something that's self serving and involves a camera, it would be just as useful to make a self-sex tape.

TheHerptile: You could off-set them so to allow room for them to grow.

Pelican Man: Great video and system, what nutrients do you suggest? Also, I saw in the uploader comments that you said the lettuce went nuts, did you mean it went crazy good or bad? Get back to me when you can, thank you.

IBGERIJO: You can use alot of various aquarium equipment to make it perform better. If you put a UV sterilizer in your water line you don't have to worry as much about the algae. You can also use an aquarium aerator in order to oxygenate your water tank. Cheapest way is to get the pump and tubing. Poke holes in the tubing with a thumb tack and seal the end with a lighter and a pair of pliers. You can get the airline and water line in black to help keep out the light. PVC pipe works better than gutters.

Robert Huffstutler: TayzzScottBerr, ur such a crap head, but I had to laugh, cause to each their own. Anyway Rick thanks for a simple design and a very nice vid. Tayzz how did it work or r U in jail now?

Allon Peterman: Rick that was very well done thanks I too will be trying some Hydroponics in the near future. Working on my greenhouse first.

Fyghosn: Is everyone from the UK named Rick?

MercOhra: You could probably use the black plastic kind of material they use to make ponds ?? its a thick movable plastic

jamoho: I would suggest u get a stronger pump from Petco and ur plants light source well be ???
