Home Hydroponic Farm: Hundreds of Pounds of Produce in 10 Sq Ft!

Home Hydroponic Farm: Hundreds of Pounds of Produce in 10 Sq Ft!

A full tour of the hydroponic systems we use to grow lettuce, herbs, strawberries and other produce right in our home! This method is simple, low-cost and takes very little space – something anyone can do! These systems are built using items that can be easily purchased online and requires only basic tools and DIY skills.

NEW! We’ve created a full video course going through all the steps of building and setting up a 2 or 4 rail home hydroponic system. We show you every step as we build it and we think you’ll find it very helpful!

    You should add Fish and covert it to Aquaponic

    "Hydroponics is really nice because in this case we’re going indoors and we have no pests."

    super nice greens there, and is it easy and can you grow them in high rise apartments using LED lights

  4. Dinky Doo on August 27, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    Don’t mean to be rude man but you are puting me to sleep…..

  5. M B on August 27, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    Those plants are way too close together they wont grow right. also the holes on the end are too high. you need more air in there

  6. Quan Pham on August 27, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    How long do you leave the lights on each day?

  7. Justin Ledvina on August 27, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    This is great thanks for sharing your setup. Looks fun might give it a try.

  8. Mavyy Blue on August 27, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    Couldn’t you just use Hydroton Pebbles to fill the gaps and prevent allegy?

  9. Nathan Moller on August 27, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    At around https://youtu.be/bWebs3ID6Hw?t=570 you’ve got some artifact narration muddying it up.

  10. Lu Bu on August 27, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    cool af

  11. mayagayam on August 27, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    I get mine at tomorrowseeds on Etsy, I’m experimenting with salad bowl lettuce and Jericho lettuce.

  12. A R I S E I S R A E L A P P A R E L on August 27, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    You should use pool noodle slices to keep the light out – then you don’t need the net cups for the plants

  13. mattzx77 on August 27, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    Im not a lettuce person I just grow peppers but damn if this isnt some nice looking lettuce. This guy has his Nutrient and system dialed in 110%

  14. Anton Gully on August 27, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    10 foot square.

  15. Arun Rao on August 27, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    Really great to see such a small and efficient system. Will check the site for your build. THANK YOU

  16. Nk Nk on August 27, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    I learned nothing

  17. Jose Hernandez on August 27, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    what do you do when there is no electricity ? TY for the info but not sustainable.

  18. raidenwave on August 27, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    thanks for sharing, but how weird to talk over your own VOICE OVER ! How devoid of logic to have overlapping voice over tracks ! 1st time I’ve witnessed that…

  19. mayagayam on August 27, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    Do you worry about the plastic leeching into your nutrient solution?

  20. Peggy Wells on August 27, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    strawberries need a lower pH in the nutrient solution than greens. probably best to have an independent system for the berries

  21. BeeBox on August 27, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    Interesting indeed

  22. A R I S E I S R A E L A P P A R E L on August 27, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    Considering purchasing the course. Just one question – approximately how much does the system cost to build?

  23. Media Pool on August 27, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    thanks

  24. Merin on August 27, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    is it possible to set up this outdoor

  25. KRISPIPER on August 27, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    Hey Caleb- I purchased your course. SO WORTH IT! BUT I wish there were a printable pdf or something also, since it’s so time consuming to search through your video course for specific info. Anything like that available please?? It should reaaallly come with the course.

  26. Rey Hernandez on August 27, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    brand new to the channel, love your content! check ur audio at about 9:30 tho!!

  27. Pralav Pradhan on August 27, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    How do you manage pests in your hydroponics system?

  28. Sheena's keto prepared Homestead on August 27, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    So awesome

  29. Parmy Kumar on August 27, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    I suppose if you eat organic food you can use your poop to feed the plant’s too? 🤔

  30. Sharing_Opinions on August 27, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    Doesn’t it increase global warming?.
    Electricity and cooling system in summer.
    Just asking a question.
    No intention to hurt you.

  31. Ahlf Gatsby on August 27, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    Now tell the world you quit your job to start a farm in your closet

  32. Wilfred Teo on August 27, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    How do you prevent spidermites or any pests?

  33. Frank G on August 27, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    Would it be a valid concern with all the plastic, pvc and cement?

  34. Henry Chit on August 27, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    can you share how much room temperature? ventilation? how many hours do you give airflow? 😀

  35. Andre Roths on August 27, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    Love the video, a lot of great information! A little constructive criticism, take some B roll footage and splice it in on top of your commentary, so that the voice doesn’t overlap(happens twice). Keep up the good work, definitely subscribing.

    For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)
    Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. (James 4:4)
    When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. (Mark 2:17)

    "A couple of pounds of produce that cost hundreds of dollars to grow"

  38. Budak Janda Baek on August 27, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    I like way u say "erbs" 😏

  39. Hank Moody on August 27, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    That is a lot of food for the week!

  40. TourPace64 on August 27, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    We just finished building our system based upon the specs given on the website and are very happy with the result. Question: Does anyone else’s system sound like a long, continual drag on a water bong? (sorry, there is no better way to describe it.) There’s no air being pumped in with the water, it’s seems to be the flow between the inlet and the exchanges between each rail that is causing the sound.

  41. Randy Moore on August 27, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Audio is just embarrassing dude..

  42. Drew Nelles on August 27, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    Great video, but one quick question: The nutrients: What do you use, and is there a concentration level they need to be kept at? And do you measure the level of nutrients in the water?

    Great what you can do in 10 square feet!

  43. Iamyour FAN on August 27, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    Can you give a rough estimate of how many liters of water is in your reservoir per plant?

  44. Wendy Johnson on August 27, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Awesome video! I want to do something like this in my 9th grade science classroom. What varieties of lettuce grow the best? Can you share where you buy your seeds? Thanks!

  45. Malinois Nation on August 27, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    u probably found out you need more light for strawberries

  46. veryeasyhydroponics Allen on August 27, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    Not a bad job next time I would consider designing something that’s easy to clean that’s going to be your biggest problem when you have to clean it out

  47. Toni LaFountain on August 27, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    Do you have to hand polinate the strawberries?

  48. Zander Perkalator on August 27, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    You could probably run that pump 15min every hour and save energy and help the pump last longer.

  49. JJTrades on August 27, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Hydroponics: Spending $800 to produce $200 of food 😛

  50. Reviving India Movement on August 27, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    What ppm you keep?
