This is my project, building a self-contained eco-systems. will add solar and renewable energy later when i learn more about it
@Max - It's called 3/8" Black Chip. Be sure not to use road base as it is made of recycled ground up pavement.
I have since had an idea to use a crushed white rock to better reflect light and heat. I have not done the research yet, but the idea appeals to me for my next grow bed.
@Bob, Thanks very much... I checked out your vid and learned lots... The gravel you are using? is that normal 2"- type road gravel? We have a cement factory nearby that sells river rock, should I contact them and use it instead of hydraton... thanks again
I gave your new video a thumbs up!
I'm growing indoors with south facing windows, but I discovered that I needed more light. I'm not sure if that is your plan, but I thought I would let you know how that worked for me.
If you put beds of gravel or a tank on the top, you really need to be sure the structure will support the weight. When I built my tank the bottom plate broke loose when the deck screws I had used to fasten it with sheared clean off. Water and gravel are deceptively heavy.
LOL, I thought it was the "in thing" these days but yes... It's a bit much, i say
Can you remove the music?
