I have found a guide that I as a complete newbie to hydroponics found very useful in explaining how hydroponics works, and a few different methods to it. It's not actually based on pot, but gives lots of useful information. It also includes some prices, but these are not particularly accurate as the guide is around 2 years old. If you deem this guide unnecessary/shit, feel free to delete the thread. http://www.hydrocentre.com.au/catalogue/hydrocentre_com_au_catalogue.pdf (2mb) Check it out.
