DWC - Growing Medium Alternative

Discussion in 'Growing Marijuana Indoors' started by Traceur, Apr 4, 2010.

  1. I'm going to be using a one bucket DWC setup with 6500k CFL lighting for my mothers and clones. I had a High Pressure Sodium light given to me which made me begin this project.

    I have a major problem that expands to more, which is, I live no where near a hydroponic store and have no way of online shopping.

    So.. Is there an alternative grow medium for hydroton and rockwool for my net pots?

    Thanks in advance.
  2. Well ya but that would be the least of my worries. How are you going to get nutes? You could try an aqua culture using fish to feed your plants. Aquarium gravel can work in the place of hydroton, or pea gravel.
  3. net pots can be made out of anything made of plastic. Try using something that is not transparent. I have heard of people using yogert containers with those big square lips on top. Anything that you can cut a bunch of holes into and make a net pot with a lip around the top to hold it in place will work.
  4. plain old river rocks should work.
