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

RE: Going to try Hydroponic Lettuce

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.
