Demonstrating tomato cultivation in Dutch Buckets under a fertigation regiment and weekly pruning schedule to manage topside growth.
While there are ready made nutrient solutions on the market such as SNAP and Yamasaki, it is cheaper to use dry granular fertilizers and mix your own solutions. We’ll show how to use a PPM/TDS meter to mix a water soluble fertilizer for hydroponics.
Dutch Buckets are a great grow system for a wide variety of crops. Its versatility and ease of operation makes it a preferred option for growers.
Algae presents a common problem in hydroponics systems as the decomposing algae sucks up the dissolved oxygen in the water and leads to water stratification.
A vertical NFT system using PVC pipes and framing materials maximizes the two dimensional space especially if you have a small land area to cultivate with. Considerations must be made to the amount of light available to all sides of the system.
In this article, we will walk you through how we built a table top floating raft deep water culture (DWC) system using repurposed plywood, insulation foam, pondliner, and styrofoam boards. Half of the table is set up for circulating Ebb & Flow (Flood & Drain), while the other half is simple Kratky.
Hydroponics growers enjoy cultivating vegetables with very little effort but a major caveat is the tendency to be too lethargic to properly maintain their systems throughout the grow cycle.
Root problems are a common issue facing growers in any type of growing system. While not easy to spot, when the plant starts showing signs of problems, it’s usually too late to correct. In this article, we’ll show some examples of young cucumber seedlings afflicted with root disease and examine the reasons why it occurred.
Like any living organism, plants need food to grow into its fullest potential. We’ll discuss and explain how to use Peters Water Soluble Fertilizers in your grow systems.
An easy way to transplant seedlings into net pots for NFT hydroponics systems.
One of the benefits of growing inside of a greenhouse is the ability to set up Vertical NFT Grow Systems, also known as A-frame NFT Systems.
Dutch Buckets offer the greatest versatility in growing different crops due to its customizable features and flexibility in arrangement and can be used for both hydroponics and aquaponics.
Hydroponics is all about doing more with less.
In hydroponics, a “growing medium” is what you will use instead of soil.
