I set up two large Kratky hydroponic systems. One is in a 60-gallon pickle barrel, and the other in a 45-gallon trashcan. Here’s a video preview. I’ll post a more in-depth video showing the setup and the all the details of what I used, in about 30 days.

2019 Pepper grow update #9 – 05/15/19

I’m getting very close to putting these out on the drip system. I still haven’t decided which kind of container setups I’m going to use this year. I’m leaning toward going back to Osmocote 14-14-14 for a while, just because I have a bunch of it already, would save some money. Then later in the season, switch them back to Dyna-Gro 7-9-5.

Sansi 15-watt full spectrum grow light – version 2

Sansi has sent me the second version of their 15-watt full spectrum grow light.  In the video below, I show the unboxing and setup, as well as power and light tests. I have it set up over some succulents and will post a follow-up video showing the progress, after 30 days.
