Hydro questions

Hello guys. I’m giving up on soil I think. I’m going to try hydro and found this video on a diy hydro bin. My question is it seems a bit small is this for just starting them and will need to transfer to a 5 gallon when they get bigger?

That’s not hydro , hydro doesnt have the sprayers. And yes I would say that’s to small. I would do 1 plant in a tub. You dont want to transfer plants in hydro. So 5gal pails minimum per plant.

@repins12 has a great setup you might want to check out.

Here is a link to a grow I did in 5 gal pails.


@Quarinteen it’s Aeroponic, and 27 gallon.
I know because that’s the system I use now, well close to it. I made my own tweeks to
It. Happy to answer any questions on it!
My plant in it


I would just do a setup like Jstar and learn PPM/PH then move to RDWC.

Guess I’ll be checking out journal #2.

The video was labeled hydroponic / aeroponic, I assumed everyone would know what I meant. Thanks for the info. So you keep the plants I. There the entire time? How many plants can you fit in 1?

You can start up to 6, maybe even 9. That will only finish 1 plant though. Roots would be tangled before the first week of flower.
I am planning on getting a larger reservoir and linking 3 of the 27 gallons to it. That way I would only need to change the water maybe once or twice, I have to change bi-weekly with this system.

Those are even a few weeks old now.
