My first try at hydroponics

hydroponics ebb and flow hydro hydroponic ghe
I'm sure the ebb and flow system could always been built in a better way but there is close to zero DIY hydroponic equipment in my country. These containers was the biggest and most fitting I could find for my limited space. If big tanks and trays were available I might have built one reservoir and tray instead of 3 systems. One benefit is that I can mix the nuts different in each tank depending on the plant stage / types and so on.

The walls are a bit tall but I don't think its going to be a problem?

I choose the GHE nuts, sometime in the future I might try other brands available here. Following the Lucas formula which means no FloraGrow. From what I've heard GHE should be good though :)

The testing equipment I use. Bought it for a cheap price in China, worked well so far. In case I also have pH strips.
