Recently pieced together my hydro setup and now I'm going to keep you all updated on the progress! Germing the seed as we speak but not sure of the strain; it's either cookies or barney's farm. Beggars cannot be choosers seeing how I got these seeds pro bono off a buddy. As for the setup: I'm growing out of a 5 gallon bucket. Using a green #5 Air Pot. Medium is Growstones GS-1. Aerating the system with a JW Pet Fusion 700 air pump and General Hydroponics Waterfarm kit #4115. My starter light is a 12W Tao Tronics LED bulb. I will eventually upgrade to a 1000w LED light in due time. Mentioned organic because the nutes are coming from 1.25-0-0 Earthworm Castings Soil Enricher and 3-4-4 Espoma Organic Garden-tone. No liquid nutes, no cal mag, just plain old worm shit and organic plant food. Every week I'll be brewing a filtered tea with these two ingredients to keep my thirsty lady happy. I wanted to create a simple hydro system that would mimic natural dirt as much as possible. Earthworm castings (EWC) tea fits the bill and is phenomenal for plant growth. However, the nutes coming from this shit is weak so I improvised and bought organic nutes as well. One good thing about brewing tea is that you are loading the system with bennies. This is something you want to do from the start. For anyone wishing to replicate my setup, some side notes: the green #5 Air-Pot is too big for a 5 gallon bucket. Modifications were needed like wrapping the pot three knuckles deep to shrink the diameter and then having to zip tie the base to the pot. Also I'm using ice cube tray squares as spacers to prevent the base of the pot from touching the bottom. This gives you breathing room to allow the drip ring to work. Sterile and inorganic hydro growers stay tuned, we might learn something.
