Local hydro store guy talked me out of trying hydroponics
I planted some Jolokia's chilli plants on pots and they are not growing at all. So I am thinking of going the hydro way with a 5 gal bucket. I just want to grow 1 plant for now. I went to a local hydroponic store and the guy talked me out of it. He said that there is a lot of maintenance that goes into it. That the Ph goes out of wack every day so the waters Ph has to be tested daily. Is this true or not.
