    My little diy hydroponics setup.....

    Well I was going to buy one but I did not want to spend so much money on the pricey kits so I made a simple deep water culture hydro setup for lettuce:

    This pic is 3 days old since then I raised the buck right up to the 2 cool color cfls and the little guys are putting out roots everywhere I had them in soil to get them started,but they were sooo slow Then after I put them in the hydrobucket(like 1 week ago) they started to look like lettuce instead of strange little seedlings with seed leafs. I am pretty happy about how well it worked for $50 including everything but the lights.

    very nice! I must admit i have never got into hydroponics because its easier to plant them in the ground, but you cant get fresh ones in the winter that way, either.
    that makes no logic
