Default Beginner Flood/Drain Rig

I just harvested and am eating the salad as I type this...

--18 Gallon tote with drain table on top. Running approx 8 gallons of nutrient solution allows for proper table fill and pump submergence.
--200W pump with in-line valve to control flow and a 4W air bubbler on a timer to run for 15 min. every 6 hours.
--(3) 23W cfl "daylight" bulbs on 12 hour on/off cycle.
--Room temp. is about 68 deg. F.
--Used the "General Organics" line and adhered to their feed schedule.

The plants up front are basil, and in the back are lettuce. Seeded on Jan. 2, 2012.
