This video is one of a series about hydroponic growing by mhpgardener – they’re really enjoyable to watch with his easy going presentation style and the results from such a simple growing system are truly impressive! If you need some encouragement to grow your own food, why not check this out? In as little as 30 days you could have your own lettuce ready to eat!
Modern growers are favouring hydroponic systems for most of the common salad plants that we find in our stores. We have been researching some of the materials and techniques that are commonly used for these systems, looking at small scale versions of the same technology that are also gaining in popularity with home growers. There is a set up cost and some maintenance involved but it makes for a satisfying project with quick results!
There are some clear advantages to be found with the hydroponic process and some possible risks as well. The advantages are that crops are off the ground, which keeps some pests away (especially slugs!) and keeps the plants clean. The plants receive a consistent supply of water and nutrients as they grow so changes in the weather won’t have such an effect.
A hydroponic system would be ideal in an urban environment where space is at a premium – it can be used for vertical (or “wall”) gardening and could be an easier option for the disabled gardener, and I nearly forgot to mention that there’s no weeding to do! I like to get my hands dirty but don’t let me put you off – the more of us that grow food at home, the better it saves some of the pollution from transporting goods and gardening is well known to be good for the soul!
There is a potential risk from using plastics, especially PVC, with water that circulates many times through the system. Plastics gradually break down and release some of the chemicals that were used in their manufacture – this happens more quickly under UV rays from sunlight. It’s really important to change the water and clean out your system regularly to minimise possible contamination.
Another factor to bear in mind is that you’ll need to be around to check the system regularly and top up the nutrient solution; also if you lose electrical power, or your pump fails, the plants can dry out quickly and die. On the positive side there’s a whole load of information out there to help you look after your system and make it work for you. We found some great info in the links below.
Okay, here is the video:

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
