My system is setup on my lanai (tight space). All containers ranging in size from large coffee containers to 15 & 20 gal totes. I generally mix 2/3 coco 1/3 hydroton & 1/3 perlite. I use fox farm nutirents, with a drip to reservior system. I decided to go with this medium because my containers were being infested with ants. I have no idea why, it just happened. I threw it all in the dumpster and started over. The really good side with my mix is it holds moisture, drains enough off, stays kinda fluffy and no wayward weed growth. I have had good luck with tomatoes, peppers , cucumbers and squash.
