Please do not post till you see the Bubbles..
I have always grown in soil, So we are all learning here.
Since KP got her feet wet I wanted to soak mine to, So I have decided to Build. I see Bubble systems online for like $100 to $300 But I don't like to order online.
First I went to Walmart;
1 68l/18g Bin: $5

For now it just bubbles, Soon it will have 360 sprayers... If you own one of these that you bought or built I would love to see a pic..? I am wondering If I should just use drip lines instead of sprayers, What do you think???

hey on the bubble stones, i couldn't get any, at least for a reasonable amount so i went to glue in the tubes on the bottom and pinched holes with a needle into the tubes, worked great. closed the tube on one end with silicon glue with what i then fixed the rest too. ...might be a idea, just might;)

In a DWC, you put clones or sprouts in the rockwool cubes, and the roots dangle down, grow down, toward the deep water.
You can start with seeds in the cubes if you have a DRIP, or a MISTER or a Bubbleponics addittional feed system. These additional systems feed the little babies Or water the seeds) until the roots reach the water line.

The airstones are for adding oxygen to the water. The mister tubes feed the roots.

GP just told me that we can post an external link, that safety issue has been overcome.
so go to Stealthhydro.com and watch the videos there, theya re very short vids.
Also, at General Grow Information, there is a FREE Download Instructional Manual there with pics also.
Those are my pics and I help write that manual. The manual and the vids show that additional feed working and the results of the root growth.
In a Bubbleponics system, the tubes feed the roots with water, nutes and oxygen.

I will post a picture. I place it in the res. and plug it in, I usually run it twice a day for an hour each time, this will vary on what kind of medium you are using and how humid it is in the grow room. Pics will be up shortly.
