Going to try Hydroponic Lettuce

rayinpenn(6)September 5, 2012

I saw a video on YouTube about a Hydroponic lettuce grower in Maryland and I liked the look of his hydroponic channels...

Link to Youtube video on hydroponic lettuce aquiculture

I dropped $230 into the following:

(4) 8' 4" wide channels

(4) 8' 4" channel lids

(4) return elbows

(4) solid endcaps

(4) endcaps with return holes

(40) 2" netted pots

(1) 250 gal per hour submersible pump

(1) 1 gal nutient concentrate

(1) Block of 100 2' square starter blocks From PetSmart

(1) Air pump

(1) Air stone

(1) 8' Black tubing

Anyone have any experience with this

I was about to mention that the only drawback is the cost, but it looks like you're already on top of that.

There's a good Hydro growing forum here if you run into issues.
