Thank you very much for your time; I have learned a great deal. I have made a "mini-system" for three plants just to experiment with using an ebb and flow. Currently I have a tomato plant, a strawberry plant, and some mums. I also have planted 12 seedlings in some rockwool, which should sprout soon. I will be making a system identical to yours. The footprint certainly is ideal. My plan is to build one on the side of my home, one maybe a bit taller and wider than your own. That side of my house is constantly bathed in bright sunlight. I live in California so in the hottest summer months I may need a canopy of sorts to protect the plants from the high temperatures.

Would you have made any design/material changes if you were to start over, besides the changes you made in your videos? Thanks again. Your videos were very thorough and helpful to this former "noob."

Glad the video and info helped. The system I designed is ideal for the small space I have - your californian wall sounds perfect.

There's nothing different I would do now that I am using hydroleica (am assuming you reached that update video?) apart from maybe adding a CFL light to it which I am looking to possibly do this winter.

good luck with it all :o)
