Hydroponic Basil – Basil is one of the most widely-known and healthy herbs, as well as easy to grow. Metaphorically, it transforms ordinary meals into culinary richness. In fact, fresh basil not only tastes better than dried, but it actually tastes unique. So, what about grow your own fresh hydroponically in your kitchen or balcony?



First thing to do, pick type of basil you wish to grow. For basil comes in many different varieties, and each of which have a unique flavor and smell. For example, there is cinnamon basil that smells like sweet spice which also has extraordinarily pretty and fragrant flowers. Or, you can try the most common variety of sweet Genovese Basil (Ocimum basilicum) – the one with broad, rounded leaves. Go get some information and pick one or some that appeal to you.

You can start indoor seeding because basil needs warm air and sun to grow well without risking them get damaged by frost season. If you live in a hot climate, you can start the seeding outside. When you growing basil outdoor, avoid windy and cold spots, because your basil can dry out and die in just one day. You have to water around mid-day so that it has a chance to dry out a little before darkness.

For preparing seed container, avoid planting basil in seed trays/flats for basil will grow a long delicate tap root and need careful care during transplanting to prevent damage. Fill or place the seeds into a moistened propagation cube (for example, rockwool, peat pellet, Jiffy or mixture of equal parts perlite, vermiculite, and peat) into a cell tray filled with seedling potting mix, or directly into a pot with some richer potting mix. You don’t have to sow basil seeds very deeply – just barely cover them.

Press the Hydroponic Basil mixture slightly to remove air pockets. Moist the mixture with water so it will ready to provide the right environment for the basil seeds to germinate. For better yields, you can use a propagator to maintain relative humidity around the seeds or sprouts, keep in medium to high relative humidity. Do not take out the propagator lid until the seedlings are well developed or else dehydration can occur very quickly.
