  3. DWC bucket works best with 4 inches of water in bottom. Any more and the
    roots will start to brown.

  5. the question is…..how did they taste? Did they have a rich earthy mineral
    taste? If not, you might want to try adding rockdust and sea-90 to the
    mix.

  8. yes the crop looks good! Just going through your comments and to recap for
    us novices…

    1) What are the strings for…How to you set up the pots for a growing vine?
    2) What is the best additive/growing medium for taste?
    3) What/how much sunlight can the plants stand?
    I rent, can’t dig up the backyard so Hydroponics is the way to go. Backyard
    is direct sunlight. Garage has no sunlight and growing inside is out of the
    question.I can erect a tarp but will have to set up/tear down daily.

  25. Hi Rick, no air stone in the kratky. Yes that is an air compressor you
