  1. heres the problem, especially in southern climates, small self contained
    systems are difficult to control water temperature. many greens hate hot
    roots, I would not recommend this south of zone 6

  4. Durham county NC won’t let you do this at your house. They say it “looks
    commercial”. I tried it, the city shut me down. Facist pigs.

  13. In this system, it does not. He could set up some catch containers and then
    pump it back into the tank. He has an automatic float that fills up the
    tank when it gets low.

  19. Tripped me up too…I thought it was some sort of mayoral pendant or the
    special growing crystal that he rubs on everything to make it grow. But
    then it occured to me that the sound level was outstanding. I suspect it is
    a microphone. A really stylish microphone. Not as groovy as those shoes

  20. HEy John I have watched a bunch of your videos now and they are great. Very
    informative. In fact I live very near Pompano. But I just have two words of
    advise if i may. Lavalier microphone.

  21. Hey John, is the earth box filled with SOIL, or PEET MOSS?

  22. Great video, John! Vertical gardening at home is really a great way to grow
    the finest food in bulk. The Urban Farmer is really a great opportunity for
    growers in Florida to garden all year-long since it offers different tools
    for both indoor and outdoor gardening setup. All states should have a
    similar sanctuary for growers!

  23. Don’t these vertical containers that are so tall form different
    microclimates on every side? one side gets morning sun while the opposite
    side gets late afternoon sun. One side full sun while the other is shade, I
    don’t know. I think it is confusing. Do they really work planting the same
    plant on all sides?

  24. @crosspecans I was wondering about the pendant too.

  25. I love them. They are great. I recommend the Vibram Flow, as they have
    thicker material and are more durable.
