We had our system running in wyalkatchem for a little over 12 months when we had to move back to Perth.Shifted the system up with us lots of loads of cycled gravel and hydroton.It has been running in current location now since December last year.still have some more room fore a couple of more beds DWC i think as it they are doing very well. Also wouldent mind changing the shed roof to laserlight and converting it to hot house but where would i put the solar panels. :lol: Happy to answer ang questions anyone has or show our system off.

Hi Wyal,

I noticed the "dutch pots". I have just put together my first system with 12 of these plus an old bath tub for my grow beds. Is there any thing that I need to look out for with using pots, or is there any tips you can give me?

Sweet set up champ :headbang:

Can you explain what is going on in the shed for us. Are they seperate FT's or a series of filtration tanks?

Cheers

Hi Witho

The biggest problem i have found with the pots is the roots growing into the drain as i am only using 19mm drain line back to sump i need to take the inner pot out periodicly and trim the roots . I also have added some coco peet to the pots to help retain moisture as the water only trickles in when the sump is returning to fish tanks

Cheers
