I’ve been seriously contemplating getting into hydroponics for sometime now. I just got a decent pump with some air stones I’ve been using for my teas but I can def run 2 buckets with this pump so I was thinking I’m halfway there ha. Anyone with hydro experience that would mind giving some advice on what I should do and what route I should take I would greatly appreciate it. Like, should I get a net pot and use rockwool or should I use the clay pebbles? Both? What size net pot 6 in? I should probably go DWC right? I really need it to be pretty basic. Just want to try it out see if I like it over soil. What advice would you give someone just getting into hydro?

I started off making my own buckets and doing dwc on my first grow.  My best advice would be to buy one of the buckets specifically made for dwc with a reservoir window,etc.  They aren't crazy expensive and will make life alot easier, especially when the plants start getting big.  Haha

I think they are called Hydrobuckets.

I did one dwc for a mother once. The bottom of the bucket had 6" of solid roots packed in the bucket. The growth was amazing. But the roots were the biggest, most healthy things I'd ever seen.
