I've decided to try peppers in the first try at the Hydrofarm DWC (Emily's garden). I plan on growing 2 Ace bell peppers, 2 Giant Marconi frying peppers and a jalapeno. Leaving one space open for checking nutes. I finally had a chance to hang the compact fluorescent light fixture. Peppers started 6 Sep 2011. More details to follow. Pix of the setup:
2 October 2011: Peppers transplanted 25 September 2011. Growing 2 Ace bell peppers, 2 Giant Marconi and one jalapeno pepper. GH Flora Nova nutes, started at 1.0 EC, which has raised to 1.4 EC today. pH of 6.0.
10 October 2011: Peppers doing really well! I'm pleased that the light seems sufficient for the set-up. Only issue is some condensation dripping from the lip of the lid. Changed nutes, still flora nova, EC 1.3 and pH 6.0.
