Gardening is to me, what fish-keeping is to you. Even though our tank is still cycling, I think I can get into this. I have to have a planted tank though. Those fake ones look so...fake

I think you'll do just fine. You've already learned how to let nature do it's thing. The main problem for a lot of people is that they rush everything trying to find instant gratification. It's quite a bit like gardening, plant a seed and then give it time. If you rush it, over feed it, dose it with too many chemicals, you've just undone everything you set out to do. Gardeners have learned the benefit of patience and that, along with a great deal of common sense and some simple research will yield the results you want. Don't be afraid to ask questions and research and pre-plan. It will save you time and heartache later on. It's an enjoyable hobby, but growth takes time. On a lighter note... The water from your pwc is a phenomenal fertilizer, no compost time needed!

Thanks Maya, but my garden is over 6000 square feet. I don't think the pwc water will help much. It may be OK for the hanging baskets after a trial run. I don't trust anything on the plants without testing it first. And you are right, cycling a tank is a LOT like gardening. We have the patience for it though. I told JB the tank will be ready about the time we harvest green beans. She's cool with that. She's learning how to test the water now.

Josh, lighting isn't a problem for me. I start all of my plants from seed in a high tech grow chamber and also have a greenhouse. I have lots of full spectrum plant bulbs and fixtures
