Easy hydroponics, the reason I do not use rockwool to start my transplants. We are going to clean out our downspout that had the lettuce growing in it to make room for some pak choy. Let’s see how long it takes. Diy hydroponics.

Keep on Growin’ with Mike VanDuzee
Mike, this is a wonderful idea, I may have to borrow it =). My wife bought a bunch of pool noodles to place in her boots. She said it's the cheapest method to keep the boots from being flattened.
I have a DWC system in gutters that I'm going to switch to Kratky because of your videos. In my system the roots travel long distances and plug up drains sometimes. I see the roots on your plants are only directly below the holes.
Love the concept but how do you start your seeds?
No matter the field, I always dig alternative approaches! What’s the purpose of the pool noodle/rock wool, holding the seedling in place while allowing expansion and providing some insulation?
But how do you start seeding just with this?
Rockwool mafia coming after you
Do you ever worry about heavy metals and or toxins leaching on to the crops with those downspouts and pool noodles?
Can you do tomatoes the same way with the pool noodle
Omg, the ducklings!😍too cute. Video made my day!
Hi! In my country this cost 5$ (400rub on 2020). But Insulation for pipes cost 0,5$.
Got hungry looking at your wonderful harvest. And we love pool noodles! Thank you!
It sent me when your dog just sat up 😂
Can i use pool noodles to grow seedlings?
Can you grow tomatoes in that downspout?
I just saw this. I’m looking to start my hydroponics now. THANK YOU!
Thank you so much!!!! I just(literally 2 min. ago) purchased hydroponic net cup + clay pebbles + rockwool, 60$ in Amazon. I'm cancelling it right now. Thank you again!!! This is a great idea, especially for me. I don't even have hole saw, the hole in my bucket lid is not round. So net cup would not fit in anyways. This is perfect for me. You saved my money👍👍👍👍🌿
Men where have you been, I love your video on hydroponic and to try it your nice job I'm impressed thank you so much
Hello sir nice vdos and nice work getting rid of rock wool. U can start ur seeds in normal potting soil and can transfer them as well right. And i think u shld do a vdo on saving seeds it will save us money as well. Thanks in advance
Hi. What's the size of the gutter track?
I like the thinking (methods you're using) to get this video (and youre others) seen by more people.
If I think of anything anything I DONT SEE that you've tried, I'll let you know.
Do you have an email I can contact you on?
(I know you mentioned it in a video, but I have almost ALL of your videos in my history- your guess is as good as mine as to which 1 it is)
Hi! I want to begin my hydro garden. Can you also start the seeds in the pool noodle?
You know you are a genius don’t you pool noodles who would have thought
your dog is so cute
I guess you could use pipe lagging too
Whatz the size of your pool noodle?
Isn't it possible to cut pieces out of roxul compressed rockwool panels instead of the pricey hydroponic rockwool cells?
How do you keep tiny seedlings from falling through pool noodle hole?
Is this kratky method using downspouts? Or do you have some kind of pump?
A local guy showed me this trick, it is both cheaper and better than using rockwool all the way. I still do use my EazyPlug rockwool for starting seeds, and then when it grows a bit i just remove it and transplant it to my NFT system. Cheers!
is that the banana rings foam kids use in a pool?
Mike, I notice the pool noodle centers have been removed to make room for the thicker stems. How do you know WHEN to do that? I have 2-3 microgreen seedlings in each pool noodle-with-center stuffing right now, but I don't want to choke the stems….when do I remove?
Great idea! Just curious; how did you close in the ends of the down spout hold in the water?
In poorer places they use foam from old mattresses.. 🙂
you saved me from rushing to home depot during covid! 😀 <3 thank you for sharing. God bless you!
Dude your a genuis 😂👌🙏😂
yes you can compost rockwool but not suggested to regrow seeds in a used rockwool cube.
How often do you clean out the downspout and plants
How are you keeping all your tanks water full of oxygen?
in the dead of summer does the water get hot? that's my concern. form Oklahoma.
so do you grow a little seedling in soil and then transplant it to the pool noodle HELP
What soil or medium are sprouting your seeds in the lids of the plastic containers ?
how do you stop the solution from coming out of the ends of the downspout?
I am thinking that foam pipe insulation also work instead of pool noodles. Just because we have some, and would like to be able to use them instead of buying a pool noodle.
What is TWRFAM?
Very interesting. Will try it
