Well I was going to buy one but I did not want to spend so much money on the pricey kits so I made a simple deep water culture hydro setup for lettuce:

This pic is 3 days old since then I raised the buck right up to the 2 cool color cfls and the little guys are putting out roots everywhere :D I had them in soil to get them started,but they were sooo slow :jester: Then after I put them in the hydrobucket(like 1 week ago) they started to look like lettuce instead of strange little seedlings with seed leafs. I am pretty happy about how well it worked for $50 including everything but the lights.

very nice! I must admit i have never got into hydroponics because its easier to plant them in the ground, but you cant get fresh ones in the winter that way, either.

Well I use cfls and there getting bigger :D After 3 weeks there exploding so I am eating in 2 weeks....... I am going to do a 4 plant setup in my shed soon :) I'll grow chard,chives,ginger ??? and some others. Instead of heating the shed I'm heating the nutrient solution up abit for some good growth.
