Week Nine – Not a lot to do!

One of the advantages with growing hydroponically is that there is very little potting necessary. Plants go into their final position early on, and stay there until they fruit.

Another advantage of hydroponics is that plants do not need to grow their roots to the extent that soil grown plants do.

Soil grown plants develop large root systems in search of water and nutrients. Hydro grown plants have the luxury of being pampered with water the finest water and nutrients available, delivered to their door!

Of course, measuring the pH and strength (EC) of the nutrients/water that we feed them with is a bit time consuming. However, keeping a lookout for pale growth, or other visual symptoms, is all that is necessary for now.

    Hello Nick

    Things seem to going well with the Hydroponics and I am trying to follow your advise carefully.

    I must admit to feeling a little nervous and wonder whether its the calm before the storm, so to speak.

    Can I ask if you were buying an EC meter now which would you consider?

    Many thanks Nick

      Hi Steven, I use an EC meter that is old and no longer available – compare prices on amazon and also hydroponic shops online. All the lower cost battery meters work very well.
