New to Hydroponics
I think i'm going to try my luck this season with a hydroponics system. I only have an apartment building w/ a small balcony, so my space is limited. I plan on growing tomatoes(Sweet 100's) and red bell peppers.
I have done a little bit of research and I think i'm going to build the simple system w/ a 5-gallon bucket, aquarium pump, and air stones. 1 plant for each 5 gallon container. How does this setup sound? Would you recommend another system?
Another question about the nutrient solution and when is the proper time to change. I have read every 2 weeks the solution should be changed. So do you just dump out all of the water/solution every 2 weeks. Would it be easier to add some type of drain to the bucket? I know that is probably a stupid question but I just want to clarify that.
