First Grow: Small Aeroponic & Drip Hydropinic Setup - (White Rhino)
Welcome to the journal of a small, legal, medical marijuana grow room. We may be relatively 'green' to hydroponics, but through the efforts of individuals across a gamut of disciplines this room is going to be awesome! This is a FIRST TIME GROW, using hydroponic gear, for all those involved...and will be updating the Journal frequently, including lots of pictures!

I'm not into hydroponics but Good luck to you. Have you ever considered aquaponics? Much easier and I'm sure you wont need nutes ^_^
Looks like a lot of fun! ...but right now we're in pretty deep with Hydro, and don't want to risk the farm on bleeding edge technology. But you're right, in the future this will be the more efficient way to go!
