    Well have moved into my new home, still unpacking though. Currently trying to decide how I want to do my hrdroponic system. Since the room I originally planned to use (the northwest dinning room) gets very little to mostly low lighting due to direction facing and large oaks blocking light, I am thinking of doing something small in there first with shade loving plants like peas, beans, spinach, and lettuce. I am also thinking of a shade loving herb garden of mints, sage, lemon balm, and some others herbs for tea/cooking. I will save the sun loving plants for when I finish organizing the craft room which gets a lot of southern eastern/western light. I am impatient to start and have been slowly gathering recycled supplies. My latest recycled find was a 3 gallon water bottle from someone throwing away their filtered water device. My only current problem is I cannot make up my mind if I want to use it as a water resevoir or try and find a cap/top for it to use in soda making or homebrew as it is the perfect size to fit in my fridge. It’s a case of when hobbies collide. ^_^*

    I have downloaded the plans for a basic three container window garden. I’ve had success with ornimental plants in my east-facing office. One of the things about growing indoors in Florida that I’ve noticed is that airconditioning makes things dry out faster. I’m eager to build my first unit and test it out in one of my south-east exposure windows. I’ve heard about urban farming in our SE Florida communities and I’m hoping to be able to offer some of the things I learn from them. I think collaboration is the key so, all of you please post your grand and partial successes.

      I’m only just getting my first system together. but I’ve been researching for about a month on hydroponics. I’ve talked with a few people and read 5 books(and about half a dozen thesis papers) on the subject of hydroponics.

      I’ll have my first system up and running in time for Christmas, so I’ll definitely let you know how it goes. Just remember to subscribe to the Florida Group. :)

    I’ve never managed to successfully grow anything other than a bit of lucky bamboo and pothos. Looking forward to trying my hand at my own little garden where I don’t have to spend hours digging in the dirt in the sun. I’m a pale skinned Florida girl, I don’t tan, I burn!
