Hi All,
 
  Well, I've acquired a small hydroponic DWC unit (emily's garden by hydrofarm).  I plan on growing just one full size bell pepper plant (or two) because I want to take it next month to do a hydroponic show-and-tell at the  Maryland Master Gardener training class.  So, can I start the seedlings in the ag sponge and transplant?  I think you guys have done that.  Help please?

Nothing outdoors yet, of course. But revved up the seedling lights this week. Using only 6500K fluorescent tubes this year (past 2 years have been 6500K + 4200K tubes). And my baby pansies just graduated to 6-packs.

Hi All,

 I see this got three reads before I had a chance to add content!  Anyways, I'm going to try an heirloom red cherry tomato and a mega cherry tomato in the ag.  I wanted two red cherries but this is what sprouted.  I'll be using aerofalls nutes.  www.aerofalls.com.  I've got 16-8-16, 16-16-16, 8-25-17 and 20-7-13 formulations.  I need advice on which to use and what EC I should shoot for.  I'm hoping for a successful grow!  Here's pictures of the baby plants and a mega cherry in an 8" pot with miracle grow potting mix:

Hi All,

  I'm looking at this compact fluorescent light fixture that uses a 125 Watt bulb but can't seem to find specs on spectrum/lumens.  Do you think this would provide more light to a couple of pepper plants than 3 shop lights (4' long by 22" wide) with six 32 watt bulbs (says 2700 Lumens/6500 K)?
