Im looking to start growing culinary herbs indoors this winter. Cilantro and Basil at this point. As I have a chance to sell all I cant use of those to a local resturant. I think I have all the lights I need. 4 4ft florecents for starting seedlings and 400W MH and 600W MH for production. I have never used a hydro system before but I have heard its a lot less hassle and mess than growing in soil. I think Id like to give it a shot. Does anyone here use a hydroponic setup? Is it as simple as they say? Will flavors of the herbs be affected by not using soil? Most hydro veggies I have tasted dont have much flavor. Is that from the lack of soil or just people growing flavorless hybrids bred for shelflife and good looks? Any input from both sides would be appreciated.
