Help w/ 'Sustainable Gardening'
In case the name didn't make you realize it, I created this thread in an attempt to make better sense of Georgeiii's growing system.
Please refrain from belittling or contesting/contradicting his system IN THIS THREAD. I have simply created it in an attempt to get answers to questions I have and clarifications of what he has presented.
With that being said. . .
Georgeiii the inserts you've mentioned appear to be one quart soup containers (like you'd get with chinese takeout) where you've made slits in the sides and filled with media. Is the generally correct?
Do you currently favor the perlite / styrofoam media you've mentioned previously?
Your "hydropail" appears to be a large bucket with one of the above mentioned inserts stuck in the middle of the lid?
How much water do you put into the lower bucket? (i.e. how far below the bottom of the insert is the water)
Thanks for your time.
BTW, I have actually taken some time to look through the myriad of pictures on your photobucket account. Thanks for posting them.
