I am a very very newbie.

I am about to try growing lettuce on my counter top in a two gallon container.


I have a 12 inch bowl and a top with a six inch net pot in the center


I am starting the seeds in 2inch rock wool

When I place the started plants and I fill the bottom of the net pot and around the rock wool to the top of the rock wool is flush with top of the net pot with course perlite?

not quite aquaponics - more hydroponics. google kratky / kratky method / kratky lettuce.

it is the typical high school low end hydroponic experiment.
he basically adds nutrients to a juice bottle and grows it to size and you can find the original journal paper around as a pdf. but many people discuss it on the net.
