I've been fascinated by hydroponics lately and decided to do a small scale test run with a ebb flow hydroponic system. Anyone else out there using one of these systems?
There are lots of good videos on youtube on hydroponics. It's a neat way of farming.
Thanks... I've been checking out YouTube and you're right! Lot's of DIY from small to commercial size systems. I'm doing table top size this year, but may try something larger for my four season room for later on this or next year.
Hey david its great to see someone else on here into hydroponics. It's pretty strange how similar the two hobbies are. Yes, I love hydroponics and I would say my favorite system of hydroponics would be deep water culture. I have experience with drip systems, deep water, and a little in aeroponics. with DWC I didn't use the best nutrient source so I had HUGE volume yield over quality of product.. but hey I loved it. What type of systems are you into? Pictures too?
ps. Also bubbleponics is super sweet too. Essentially its just putting a bubbler (air stone or bubble wand) in your source of water.

Ryan those videos are sweet! The aquaponic system looks like so much fun.
After some reading, I've been thinking about getting the Hydrofarm SBC400 400-Watt HPS/MH Sunburst Convertible Unit along and use their 400W Agrosun Gold Halide Horizontal bulb. From what I see this bulb has a good combination of the light spectrum for growing out vegetables, fruits and flowers indoors.
