This book, ladies and gentlemen, is what is known as "The Bible" of Hydroponics. Doctor Resh's book is currently in it's 6th edition and you can find it at the Public Library as:

ISBN: 093123199X
Publisher: Newconcept Press, 2002

Ask your librarian to search for it using the "Intra-Library Loan" method, and it should come to you within a month or so.

This first edition of this incredible book was in about 1959, if my memory serves me well, (yeah right), and is almost impossible to find now.

The second edition was published in 1983, with quite a delay between editions as you can see.

This was pretty much because Dr. Resh was WAY before his time with this fascinating book.

If anyone does find a first edition, let me know. I want that bad boy!

Anyone that is seriously considering a Hydroponic garden or crop of any kind should have already read this book at least once. Preferably several times.

Thnx for the info!!!!
Wait until you've read it! While reading it, you'll see about 100 different ways you can modify each method to your own use. Your mind will go nuts!

Just looking at the pics entertains me...

Check out the pic of the hanging bag system in Italy. It's set up for tomatoes. Imagine doing weed that way...OH MY GOD!

It's got 400 pics...

One is of an outside NFT system that's simple and works great. I did that one a few years back. Has too much evaporation. I switched to a tube style, Greenhouse NFT system for my garden now. 84 plants in a 10 x 20 foot area. Works awesome. Enough veggies for a family of four.
