Hi,

I just moved to Asheville, NC and am building a hydroponics system (the lease said no fish tanks). I have lived in New Orleans most of my life and am wondering how the winter will affect my plants. Will the water be too cold for the roots? I've seen some information about water heating elements like this one (Heating Element https://www.amazon.com/dp/B017UK0ZUW?psc=1 ). Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Josh

I take it you are outdoors? I would say root temperature is the more important factor rather than the ambient air temperature when it comes to growing plants, so using a water heating element will help you keep plants with warmer temperature requirements if that's what you're looking for. It all depends on what Asheville's winter temps are like and what plants you are looking to grow.
 
If you are using a wood chipper, you are doing it wrong. Even on this tiny ad:
