This is like opening an old barn door to reveal fine engineering ..a custom built 8 cylinder hydroponic garden. Eight five-gallon buckets with hydroponic flood fittings.
I have always wanted to try it with two 1000 watt bulbs, one per four plants seems like perfect balance (hydroponic reservoir with water cooler between both four plant per light topologies) ..must see this in operation. Five gallons of expanded clay pellets is enough rhizosphere to use the available space under an eight-foot ceiling easily.
I LOVE ..removing the dust from gear which I have kept for five years ..JUST FOR THIS. :)
Cannabis cultivation is not quite legal in Quebec yet, one more "piece of paper". In the meanwhile I can prepare the gear I stored and a shopping list.
I notice that a comparison between our current knowledge of organics/microbiomes and hydroponics will settle or spur some debate. According to proponents of organic gardening a hydroponic cultivation is not supposed to produce superior results. My experience begs to differ.
