Phase Two...

Once the plants started to get too crowded I needed to move them to a new Hydroponic system.  So I bought some basic stacks from EzGro Hydroponics.  Because I am in a flood zone I modified them by cutting longer conduit pipes so they are higher off the ground above the high water level. I then converted it to an automatic system by getting a 96 gallon garbage can, which had a leak I had to fix, and some hoses and PVC pipes and fixtures. I used the same pond pump and put it on a timer to run for 2 minutes every 3 hours  (except at 3am).

This setup worked well and I only needed to fill and add nutrients to the tank once a week.  Unlike the recirculating one I had built for inside my house this is a feed to waste system.   I transplanted all the plants to the stacks with no problems and even planted seeds in some areas.  Everything grew and continued to grow with my Cucumbers doing the best.  The only trouble I had was with my Broccoli.  It was invaded by worms that were eating my leaves to pieces!

I was able to fix the problem when I found an online recipe for it that consisted of dish soap and olive oil diluted with water and sprayed on the underside of the leaves.  After this everything was fine even though I was shore that crop was lost.

The plants I was growing were: Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Radishes, Broccoli, Romain Lettuce, and Dill.
