    i just saw a tv thing on it and was wondering if anyone has tried it yet. the process seems really time consuming but looks a lot better than farming with pesticides and all that bad stuff

    heh

    alls i know is that lettuce looked good and free from that stuff they put into food to make it grow bigger and better, but in all honestly, why cant people just let it grow the way it wants to?

    That's a great option if you can't grow it in the ground successfully. Luckily, lettuce grows like weeds on my property without the use of any pesti/herbicides (the arugula especially...yum).

    I worked at a hydroponic greenhouse last year growing peppers and cucumbers. It was good. Much better then large corporate factories that use chemials and stuff. It did however use alot of energy which would be a downside, but other then that they were pretty eco-friendly.

    FUNNY job!

    They prob could have. And like, if someone was doing this on like a sustainable farm, it would be awesome and take far less energy, but it was a more large scale sort of buisness, and it used alot of energy in the winter.
