Rob, the viewing window with the high frame recording is perfect :thumbright: . It gave me another way to show what was happening inside the bell siphon.

The 3-D printed siphon looks fantastic. I do have a question, do you anticipate any trouble with the cup movement over time, i.e. gunking up on the hinge, or the hinge wearing causing it to not move as freely as it should?

Appreciate your posts here and on YouTube (I have learned a lot from you and your work has given me plenty to think about).

I don't think the hinge will cause much trouble. There is hardly any movement from it and the water should keep it lubricated. It hasn't happened to me, but some of the 3D printer folks say that the PLA plastic will break down over time with water. We'll see what happens with it!

I usually grow our tomatoes in the media beds. This year I'm trying out deep water culture!

It's what I had. ;-) Really they just need enough to hold the stem in place. I've had a bunch of people tell me that they've been using the GrowGrips for their tomatoes and they've been doing well.

Enjoyed the video Rob, interesting how the volunteers are doing so much better. Might have to do with them already having water roots :think: . I'm looking forward to your next installment on this.

I was really easy to transplant them. Next year I'm going to do the same thing, just throw a bunch of seeds in to the media and let them do their thing!

Nice, I finally got youtube to show on our television last night so my wife can also see them, thus enjoyed your videos even more. Thanks Rob.

Latest update on the DWC tomatoes. 6 weeks after putting them in the DWC bed.
