Growing Pak Choy, also Pak choi

14 Aug 09 cliff (Australia - temperate climate)
Hi all, I experimented growing pak choy with hydroponics using 100mm plastic down pipes with caps on the ends, and holes cut with a hole saw to take 12 foam cups which were filled with perlite, I cut slots in the side of the foam cups with a gass powered hot knife placed all this on tressels. Had great success, I just picked stems as I needed them, later I used square or oblong down pipe as you just lay them on the tressel no need to tie down, and the round pipe I hung on the fence with rope, worked a treat.
