Hydroponic Gardening & More with Brent


What do you think?


  1. Another great grow Brent!!! FYI I got your book right after it came out, and its well worth every penny spent maybe even triple the price.
    I have been a proponent of your system since I first saw it. Dirt to me is not the way to go with micros and I have said this for over 3 years. You just keep proving it.
    Something tells me 100 years from now you will be seen a the man that changed the worlds food production and kept billions from starving.
    keep up the great work and as they say in the Army Corps of Engineers, ESSAYONS!

  2. I have watched your videos for a few days already. (Microgreen Hydroponic non Medium grow.) I'm fascinated with your style of growing microgreen. I will buy your book soon. But I'm interested in your organic salt. How did you made it?

  3. Brent, I really appreciate your knowledge and your desire to share…thank you. I've been using your recipes for anti-fungal and feeding. I can grow incredible Micro's in dirt but I have problem hydroponically. Sometimes I still get fungal in parts of the sprout so that it stunts the growth. In fact around the edges seems to be worst…..with your screen and suggested trays. Would you mind doing a video to talk about the first stages of spraying verses putting trays in water with feed? In particular, how long should the roots sit in water? Should they sit no longer than a couple of hours? If they don't drink it all do you dump it out? This is assuming one doesn't have a auto waterer like you've built. I love the idea of dirt"less" but can't seem to master it. How many times a day should you add water to bottom try? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  4. Curious my friend, how long would this last as far as keeping the greens. I guess you could grow in smaller batches if you wanted just to grow a few varieties for weekly use in salads. Or maybe I could get a dehydrator and dry them out for salt like use
    Take care Brent
