    depende ra gyud na. kay i find most of my purchases made online cheaper...bisan ako pa i-add ang domestic shipping cost. and that's compared to the prices that I paid to some purchases I made here.

    I also don't see why water can be an issue. in my hydroponics system, wala gyud ko nigamit ug water from our own faucet. I collect rainwater in 2 drums...then didto ko mukuha ug water na ako gamiton to make my solution.

    Every 2 weeks, I only use about 5 gallons worth of water in making my solution. Then weekly, I use approximately another 5 gallons of plain water to top-off the water that has evaporated from my system. I only add plain water since dili man maapil ug evaporate ang minerals and other elements in the solution.

    I have a 48-hole NFT system, an 18-hole DWC system, and another DIY units with all in all, I currently have a total of 86 plants in hydroponics (most are already mature and bearing fruits, some have been harvested already).

    You have to make provisions for a frame (wood or metal tubes) so you can place a net mesh and/or UV sheet over your plants. If you can build a small greenhouse, it would be much better.

    in the beginning:

    as of aug 10:

    as of aug. 26:

    as of today:

    na harvest na ang lettuce. all basils and tomatoes na lang ang sulod sa akong NFT system. the seedlings on the foreground are placed in the system sept. 17(tomato) and sept. 21(basils).
    nindot lagi musuway ani... asa ka nagstart para makabuhat ta like this boss?

    actually akong diet more na sa gulay, tungod sa gout. nindot ni naay fresh veggies sa likod.

    unsay system ani? pwede ta makatan-aw?
