Hydroponic Lettuce

Anyone have a small hydroponic lettuce set-up that they can post pics of? i've seen a few of the 'single pot in the metal can' ones designed by Mr. Okamoto but i'm more interested in a larger system, maybe 4' x 4' to start? the attached article talks about growing in a vinyl rain gutter and that sounds interesting, too.

RE: Hydroponic Lettuce

thanks, i saw that article randg.

i found a publication from University of Florida that is more like what i had in mind. just built the frame and drilled the raft last week with small modifications-for ex. mine is only 2 x 4 and i changed the spacing slightly to accommodate 11 lettuces. i'll post pics in a few weeks. it'll probably take that long for the starts to grow and for me to finish assembling the raft.
