Fellas,
I am looking for tuners that have functional hydroponics systems to test some nutes that I have been working on for past 2 years or so. If you have an NFT, DWC, aero or even a bubbler system between 5 - 25 gallons and grow leafies (lettuce, pachcoi, cabbage), vines (cucumbers, tomatoes, pumpkins) and herbs (chive, thyme, shadon benni, other) join in!

I would be providing the hydro nutes (at no cost) and all i ask if for is legit feedback (questionnaires to be given, EC, ph readings, product sample and photos).

At this time, I would not be able to facilitate start-up but according to the response, I may help newbies for the sake of this project. Also, no commercial growers as this is just the 'beta testing' phase and I would not want to be responsible for loss of crop and earnings.

Within the next week, I should be ready to start up. PM if interested. Thanks.

Not too sure I get you? By base nutes do you mean from reacting chemicals?

base nutes = basic nutes u use to run a dro setup
supplemental = nutes u use with base to achieve a desired outcome

I get you. Yes, its all base nutes. My next step is not to develop hormones or boosters but to work out some kinks with true organic ferts for hydro systems.

Depends on what is needed. Different NPKs for different crops. Don't have the numbers offhand (not home) but my bananas use about 20-30-40. working on an all purpose banana nute. So far so good. Just waiting for tree to bloom to know if its a success. You grow?

^^ it would be great. I would have offered systems for sale at cost price along with the free nutes but no powerseller status so mods woulda def string me up. I can post links for some simple systems that u can get started with.

Taken from http://www.simplyhydro.com/free2.htm
any questions, feel free to ask and i'll try my best to answer them.

Quote:
WATER CULTURE SYSTEM

Convert an aquarium into a simple hydroponic system. The plants are suspended on a floating Styrofoam platform. This system is popular for classrooms because the roots of the plants are visible hanging below the floating platform.
MATERIALS REQUIRED
AQUARIUM - Any water tight container with fairly vertical sides will work. Light breaks down the nutrient solution and encourages algae growth so if you us an aquarium you will need to construct a light shield out of cardboard or aluminum foil to keep light out of the reservoir (aquarium). If you wish to view the roots make the light shield (or part of it) removable.

FLOATING PLATFORM - You will need a piece of Styrofoam 1 1/2" to 2" thick. Cut Styrofoam to fit loosely inside the aquarium (or whatever you are using for a reservoir).

PLASTIC CUPS - Use several small plastic or Styrofoam cups to hold the plants on the floating platform. NOTE: We usually use Solo brand 3oz. plastic bathroom cups, but you can use any small plastic cup as long as it has tapered sides.

GROWING MEDIUM - - You will need a small amount of growing medium, enough to fill the plastic cups. NOTE: The Professor recommends using Perlite or a perlite / Vermiculite mix for the growing medium.

AIR PUMP AND AIR STONE - You need to use an air pump and airstone to oxygenate the nutrient solution. A regular air pump designed for an aquarium is all that is required.

HYDROPONIC FERTILIZER * - A good quality hydroponic fertilizer is required, regular "dirt" fertilizers do not contain essential "micro-nutrients". For more information about the differences in hydroponic and "dirt" fertilizers CLICK HERE.

pH TEST KIT * - You will need some way of checking and adjusting the pH of your nutrient solution.

*NOTE: Simply Hydroponics and Organics has an inexpensive "Starter kit" that consists of quality hydroponic fertilizer, a liquid pH test kit (good for hundreds of tests) two bottles of liquid pH adjuster (1 pint pH up, 1 pint pH down) and Instructions. CLICK HERE for additional information.
ASSEMBLY OF SYSTEM
Cut the Styrofoam float to fit the reservoir. Cut the float a little smaller than the opening so that it won't bind up when the water level changes.
Cut the holes in the float to the proper size for the plastic cups that you are using, you want the bottoms of the cups to hang below the bottom of the float but not fall through. NOTE: We usually use Solo brand 3oz. plastic bathroom cups, these require a 1 7/8" to 2" hole.
Cut several holes (aprox. 1/8" to 1/4" dia.) in the bottom of your plastic cups. Add growing medium to the cup. NOTE: if the growing medium falls out through the holes you can put a small piece of fiberglass window screen or small piece of cloth over the holes before adding the growing medium. For more information about Growing Mediums CLICK HERE
CARE AND FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS
Fill the aquarium (reservoir) with water. Mix your nutrient solution as per the instructions on the fertilizer package. Check pH and adjust accordingly. NOTE: The required pH value will vary depending on the requirements of the plant. For more information on pH, CLICK HERE
Attach 1/4" airline to the air stone and place airstone in reservoir. Attach free end of tubing to air pump and plug in air pump to outlet, make sure that there are bubbles coming from the air stone. NOTE: NEVER submerge the air pump in water as electrical shock could occur.
Place floating platform on top of the nutrient solution. Put plastic cups into the holes in the floating platform.
When the plants have used up about half of the nutrient solution you can add WATER ONLY to bring the level back up (do not add fertilizer or you could cause a nutrient build up that could harm the plants). Recheck pH and adjust if necessary.
When the plants have used half of the nutrient solution for the second time you need to change out the nutrient solution by draining the reservoir and then mix a fresh batch. Use the old nutrient solution on house plants or other vegetation.

any questions or help constructing your system, feel free to drop it in the ched. i know alotta folks don't know much about hydroponics and consider it to be rocket science. there really isnt anything to it. IMO

^lighting system? indoors?...rookie3, you have just gained suspect status.

:lol:

this thread slightly suspicious hahaha!.. but really good info anyway. trini's need to do more home gardening, depend less on grocery sheit, grow nice clean veggies and seasoning at home...this is a great way to do it well for those who don't have the yard space/yard space to spare.

i wanna try with something simple like lettuce or patchoi, i assume they'll be simpler to grow :|

depending on what u gonna grow keep in mind ur lighting system may cost more than double wat u paid to make the setup

less bugs/pests to worry about if u have an indoor setup
