    Am thinking of going this way with hydroponics. Anybody have any experience using the Kratky method with out any electrical inputs such as water circulation or aeration?

    Locally, it's known as the Alaska Grow Bucket system. Uses bottom watering with Pearlie.


    Seen as a variation of Dutch buckets, these add a method for air to get to the roots.

    Self water, zero day to day effort.

    Another Dutch bucket variation is rain gutter gardening...


    ANd a Dutch Bucket system

    even more variations of self-watering systems. This is a grow bag system

    To try before you go full scale - a mini-system

    Thanks for all the good info DKR, this will take me awhile. We have been playing with aquaponics have been researching moving to hydroponics without a lot of electrical usage. Started building the vertical grow system but realized all kinds of other things were required. This idea seems so simple and low maintenance. Are you using this system?

    HydroPonic off grid Gardening

    I've been experimenting with this... I have a basil plant that is over one year old. The other 3 plants dies of alge problems. I started small See above posts and expanded. I did it with just light from an eastern window, had to add LED's. Watercress is the easiest to grow. I will post more when I have time to upload the pictures.
