Hi Paul,

Oh no, I'm sorry, I never saw this post! I used coco coir and perlite but think it gets too saturated..I'm now trying pea gravel and others with some expanded slate that I used in some of the bottom pots in the vertical towers.

What did you decide to go with? Do you recirculate the verticals back? I would love to see pics of your set up. I'm going to see if you have any up..

This is the heater I got. I had Tractor supply bring one in, to my local store from up north...

I use this timer....the colder it is, the more I have it on (mostly at night)....


This is what I'd really like to have to controll the tempts.....maybe Santa will bring me one  :-)....

Hi Paul, I was on facebook earlier. The ladies at Green AcresOrganicshas their AP set up finished and was offering tours. They are a heck of alot closer then TCLynx or myself .

Their system is a commercial raft set up,  based on Friendly's in HI.


Have a great day.

Hi Paul, Sorry I took so long to get back to you. If I don't do something right away, I tend to forget. Being sick has helped either....yuck.

   I have a bucket heater in my main tank. It's a 1000 watts....sold at Tractor supply. I'm using a timer on it....saving up for a tempt controller.

   I also have 2 - 300 watt in the in a nursery tank tied into the main tank.

   I cover the fish tank and nursery tanks with blankets. I place styrofoam over the sumps too.

   On really cold nights, I stop the flow into the growbeds. I do have water pumping into the main tank, it goes out the overflows, back to the sump(s).

    I haven't done any tours (yet)...I really wanted to get more done first. You might ask TC Lynx...she has a very nice set up and I know she enjoys showing it to people.

Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Years !
