That's exactly what it is. You have to fertilize of course, but no tilling/weeding/watering necessary. Water is of course like fertilizer, if you need to you need to. It's nothing special, just simple and effective. I am still using aquaponics to start cuttings and to grow lettuce and stuff vertically. The water sounds relaxing and is great for fertilizer for when you do need to water your BTEG.

Hey guys, wanted to use this as a sharing point to my HB community. I started my AP garden. Extremely easy! Especially when it is in comparison to my other project, building an electric brewery control panel! Took me only 5 hours to pick up the supplies, build, and get the system running. Can't wait to see how my green thumbs does!

Just ordered 4 rhizomes. Going to stick two in the AP system and two in the self watering soil garden. How much root space do these plants need? Would a 5 gallon bucket suffice for one plant? Maybe two?

Hey y'all. Just found this thread on AP hops and it got me to sign up for the forum. I've started dabbling in AP this year with a basic barrel setup. I'm finalizing my plans to do some AP hops next season. Right now I'm planning on using an IBC for my fish tank, making some troughs either with wood & liner or some huge corrugated HDPE tubing. I'm leaning towards the tubing. Currently growing my girls in 15 gal buckets with my custom lazy man low trellis system.

Here are a couple links to my hops growing adventures the past couple years:

Cheers,
James

I've found that for soil based growing the more space you give them the better they do. Personally I think 1 plant per 15 gallon pot is the ideal in regards to spacing, size and growth. This way too when you go to harvest rhizomes for next year it is still manageable.
