Hooked on ponics here, I like to at least try them all (as well as build\design hybrid systems that are multi functional like LP aero/rdwc in one), and even plan to create my own types.
Imagine this. A DWC tote with a few plants. Next to a Flood tray with a few more. As the wider flood tray floods, it uses the DWC solution, lowering it at the same time. While its lower, Aero/fogponic misters spray the roots for a few minutes in the DWC. The solution that was taken out of the DWC is pumped upwards and then travels down an NFT rail (with a few more plants) before it enters the flood table. New solution is always being added, while also leaving the system. As it leaves, it finally is dripped into a drain to waste system with a few more plants before it go's down the drain. That's like 4-5 systems working together. Sounds like a nightmare I know, but would be cool in my book!
Not exactly looking for better anything, just the experience and challenges. And keeping my mind in the gutters. Failures are great, just depends on how you look at them
