This is how I get my pak choy (pak choi) ready to transplant into my downspout grower with pool noodles. Although the grow boxes are off grid, this set up does have a small fountain pump. It runs continuously and I keep pak choy growing almost all the time so that I always have a new crop to put back into the gutter garden as soon as I harvest.

Keep on Growin’ with Mike VanDuzee
Growing some greens seemed a fun and exciting new challenge to take on. My husband wasn't very keen to it, until I showed him your videos. He says you're like the Bob Ross of hydroponics and make everything look so easy and achievable with simple instructions delivered in a soothing calm voice. So now, thanks to you, we are watching more videos and thinking of how to implement this in our lifes. I've started with a tiny container using the kratky method growing wheat grass for the cats. It works and they love it. 🙂
Thanks very helpful video great job 👏👏👏
How do you do mosquito control?
Hello, do you have mosquito in using hydroponic? Thank you, sir
Hi Mike, thank you again for such an easy and inspiring video! I just have one question. What strength of Master Blend nutrients do you use in the tank for your grow-bed?
how do you keep the critters and bugs out, doing this outside??
Just found your channel and love your content and ideas! I hope get a lot more subscribers because you definitely deserve it.
YOU MAKE IT LOOK SO EASY
MIKE I HAVE PLANTED BOC CHOI A WEEK AGO IN 1 INCH OF SOIL AND ONLY 3 SEED SPROUTED WHAT DID I DO WRONG OR IS IT BAD SEED?
Okay, this is super cool I am definitely going to have to try this with the pool noodle that has been lying around my house unused for the past 5 years. 🙂 I just subscribed, and I look forward to more learning opportunities. Thank you, and stay safe!
So awesome! Thanks for this simple, I expensive idea. I searched for a video instructing me in how to make the water lines and connect several sections of 4” pipe but chose to watch your video instead. I have been very sick for a couple of years and though I’m so excited to garden outdoors but am looking for a way to grow indoors or at least farther away from the ground due to slugs! Your ideas are so helpful to folks! We can grow our own food!☺️
Hi Mike! Love your videos! Could we get a video on the top 5 plants you like to grow in the downspout? I'm curious which would be ideal considering the size.
that's cool! to aquaponic the seed with nutrients from waste from fish tank. actually i am doing the same way as you, use the water circulation from my catfish pool, and i dont need any other nutritions for the plants! and i get double harvest, from the plants and fish!
Did you add nutrition to water or just water?
Your Swiss chard thrills my soul! Great job on the pok choy seeder, too! Always an inspiration, Mike.
Hi Mike, Thank you for your inspiring videos! Are you able to grow greens year round without them bolting?
Funny, we have a lot of spring peepers somehow managing to get into my totes as well. Lol
Really cool videos.
Hi, I tried kratky method. But suddenly all leaves are gone eaten by rat. Give me suggestion please. The rats are too many and big tho
Hi, awesome videos thank you, would like to have a go at this but live in the UK, can you suggest a tomato feed that we can get over here that would work please? Thanks
You grow chile?
But what do you do with the plant in the pool Noodle?
Great video.. Will definitely try technique. We have a couple of 10 gal tanks just sitting around. Thanks for the idea. Have a blessed day.
Dogs always seem to go after a squirrel when we aren’t expecting it. Like on the leash with a full coffee in our hands. Or maybe that is just me. Nice hydro video. I could not see but was the plug just sitting in water that you fertilize in the blue box, did the blue box have a pump too?
Is that clay pebbles you use in the grow bed?
Are those clay pebbles you are using to start your seeds?
loving care, good one
Mike, I have learned so much watching your videos and am growing lettuces using kratsky inside and outside. Question: why is an aquarium tank necessary. Wouldn’t it work with two plastic tubs, one on top of the other and a aquarium pump in lower tub both rigged up as you show here?
Where do you buy the speeds? You need a lot of seeds to grow micro greens. Where did you get the music?
You’re tomato looks tiny and weak! Try getting some black five gallon buckets to grow tomatoes. You can get bucket tops with a built in 6 inch net pot. Then drill holes in the top of the bucket cover to hold the tomato cage. Grow with the three part Masterblend mix. I have hydroponic tomato plants that are six feet high that are six times larger than the soil based tomato plants.
Yeaaahhh!!! always get excited when there is a new video xD
