I like to cook and have always thought it would be fantastic to have my own herbs and veggies growing at home. A couple of months ago, I came across the notion of growing hydroponically (without soil), which seems to fit me perfectly as I live in a flat with no garden access. And keeping my little veggie patch indoors (rather than on the balcony) protects it from the cool swedish climate.
So lately I've been tumbling down the rabbithole of web sites and Youtube channels devoted to hydroponics, and I've set up a little window sill experiment with a couple of lettuce varieties:
This is just my first experiment and I'm only 2 weeks in, but if it continues to go well I am planning to set up several Kratky or Deep Water Culture 'vases' as well as a Flood & Drain system with grow lights and eventually Arduino instrumentation
Has anyone here experimented with hydroponics or indoor gardening? I would love to hear about your experiences and maybe share thoughts on grow lights, different systems, DIY components, pumps, nutrients, etc.
