New to hydroponics
And thanks for this forum. I have been reading it all morning and it is wonderful! I am dipping my toes into hydroponics and have choosen the bato bucket system. Any info or tips would be greatly appreciated. I have purchased 2 resevoirs rubbermain rough totes 35 gal each. I have two because my learning determined I need different nutrient for greens vs veggies. Is that true? I plan on 8 buckets and yes we are making the system ourselves! We plan to put it in out screen room in Fl that faces south east. Do screens affect sunlight?
Sorry so many questions. I am hoping to plant lettuce, 2 types, tomatoes, red peppers, jalpenos, snow peas, asapargus, and various herbs in one bucket. Am I planning ok to far? Are any compatible for one resevoir or another? I am leaning towards hydroton for the containers, any better ideas? I also purchased how to hydroponic by Keith Roberto, great book by the way.
The information I have read on this forum has been very knowledgable and helpful! Thanks again.
