two cents grow log

 

Received an Extra LED back on Monday November 24 and set it up the next day.  Seedlings first appeared Thursday later in the day. 

They are hard to see in this picture, but they are there.

Sweet production, twocents!

Sweet production, twocents! on the salads.

And wave! I'm across the Sound near New Haven. smiley Not far as the gull flies, but an awfully long trip to go shopping.

I've been doing deep water hydroponics less, and other things more lately. My rain water supply is limited (not to mention space...)

Deep water tubs are progressing nicely: I think I could get almost 2 good sized salads a day off of them right now, and that is from just two of the tubs. Number 3 is just abour ready to start volunteering real baby leaves. I will need to time these better so I can rotate one in when another comes out. 

I have found a very nice hydroponic store relatively close to home: perhaps 9 miles or so. LI Hydro in Islandia: they are on the south service road, exit 57 and a light or two farther east. Nutes, systems, and they do deal with used equipment. Very nice, I got a bigger air pump for my aquariums as the smaller one was starting to get stressed by too many 'offshoots'. 

I think I might try an ebb and flow for next system.

very long. I think the extra

very long. I think the extra goes up to 24 inches. 

I have found that the extra and the ultra are very confused about light types. I have had the extra and one of the ultras complain that new lights were needed. If they had cfl lights, yeah but not led's.

I am sorry to not have

I am sorry to not have uploaded or updated. The gardens I mentioned have long since passed: I started another lettuce garden in the Extra, and it too has now passed having provided a goodly number of lettuce leaves.
I have several deep tub lettuce gardens going. I seem to get very good results from them. It is just that the AG's are so cute.

Nice, two cents! Are you

Nice, two cents! Are you growing the herb kit?

Does the Extra extend up 24" like the Ultra does? I stared at the descriptions and decided maybe the only difference was the Ultra had more LEDs in its hood. But couldn't really tell.
