Hydroponic Potatoes – The hydroponic technology has given us with the ability to grow plants, including potatoes, at your small space yard, condo balcony, or small yard greenhouse. This system also enables us to grow them year-round in the warmth of your home, as long as the plants are exposed to sunlight through your windows most of the day. Especially for potatoes, the aggregate method works well, where it employs inert material such as pebbles or perlite to support the plant and root system while it’s growing.

To get started, find or buy a sturdy container. It should be at least ten inches deep, doesn’t matter the size or the shape. Light colored containers are preferable because they can reflect light and thereby will not build up heat on hot sunny days. Next, make holes by drilling around the perimeter of the container two inches above the base and two inches apart (not on the bottom) to permit excess water to drain out of the container.

You can buy a bag of perlite and fill the container leaving 1 inch of space for watering at the top. You have to decide where to place your container before wetting the perlite, because once water is added, the container will be heavy and difficult to move. Try to find a spot that gets minimum of 6 hours of sunlight, preferably morning sun. And avoid areas that suffered from too much rain from roof runoff.  Add water until it drenches the container, obvious as it starts to drain through the holes.

For the seed, try to find certified potato seeds that have early maturing varieties (70 to 90 days) from a local seed or garden store. These may be a large of whole potatoes that can be cut into sections leaving two or more eyes (buds) per seed piece. Cut into sections and let them dry out for a day before planting.  Plant the seed pieces with the cut surface facing down about an inch below the surface and four to six inches apart.

Cover the bin with a lid until sprouts peek through the perlite, which mostly takes about two weeks. Remove the cover as soon as leaves pop up or only to water the plants, which you should do about every three to four days. Add liquid fertilizer at least once a week once sprouts appear. Mix 1 teaspoon of 20-20-20 fertilizer with micronutrients in a gallon of water. Pour in the fertilizer solution just as you would regular water, until it starts to drip out the drain holes. And expect happy first Hydroponic Potatoes harvest about 70 days after planting!

Hydroponic Spinach – Spinach is the most widely known food that is eaten by the famous Popeye – The Sailor Man. Usually the leaves are edible part of these plants which are considered as having useful content that good for your health, especially rich in iron and calcium. Other vitamins and antioxidants can be found from these plants, more specifically when they were fresh, steamed, or quickly boiled.

Hydroponic spinach is grown definitely without the use of soil. The roots of the plant are immersed in a nutrient solution that supplies everything the plant requires in order to grow well. Due to the absence of soil, some what-so-called soil-grown problems will not be met. This means less pests or weeds, as well as water saving. Larger corps or yields can be grown in the area that otherwise cannot be used for certain plants (vegetables, fruits, or herbs) productions.

For growing spinach in hydroponic method, you will need, for example, hydroponic frame, nutrient solution, and floating trays. First, mix the nutrient solution. You can purchase commercial solution, mix a good quality nutrient solution with fertilizer. Fill it into the hydroponic frame at least 5 inches deep.

Now prepare the medium. You can put perlite into the hollows of one or more floating trays. This will function as the place for seeds to start and provide stability to the plants as they are growing. Next, scatter the seeds directly into the rooting medium. The seeds will grow in the perlite and will ultimately stretch roots down into the hydroponic solution.

You can float the perlite-and-seed trays on top of the nutrient solution inside the Hydroponic Spinach frame. Accordingly, the seeds will obtain adequate moisture from the liquid below them. You have to routionely monitor the hydroponic solution and avoid the level to fall lower than 5 inches deep inside of the frame. Watering is every two or three days, as needed, and aslo add 1 tbsp. of water-soluble fertilizer once a week.

Hydroponic Systems for Weed

Hydroponic Systems for Weed – There are some reasons why you willingly want to grow the weed hydroponically. Perhaps, you want a faster harvest and get as highest yields as possible. Maybe you are more convenient with soilles growing without pests, for example hand-watering grow in soilless potting mix. Also, you like the easiness and convenience of a close-to-fully automated system (DWC, bubbleponics, etc.) and you want to become the only nutrients provider for your plants throughout their growing process. Or, you just love experimenting with different methods and want to be in harmony with the perfect grow method.

One more basic reason of growing weed hydroponically is that it provides nutrients to your plant through the water source rather than growing medium like soil. This can essentially make the roots exposed to the elements, which means more efficient absorption of nutrients.

If you love growing weed hydroponically, there are several options for hydroponic methods you can apply. In fact, each hydroponic methods for weed has its own benefits and weaknesses. Some hydro growers use bubbleponics of Deep Water Culture (DWC). This means they are growing weeds with their roots directly in water. For instance, the simple, straightforward, and effective bubbleponics from stealth hydroponics, in which the plants are housed in a lid and the roots hang into a tank underneath, which is filled with water.

Other hydroponic growers grow in soilless potting mixes or coco coir, which in practice is extremely similar to growing in soil besides the nutrients and optimum pH. Proper flushing and overall lower nutrient levels give you marijuana buds that taste even better than soil-grown.

One more important factor in growing Hydroponic Systems for Weed is lighting. The more light you can offer to your plants, the more potential they have to become massive buds. For indoor hydroponic weeds growing, there are some offers of lighting systems – compact fluorescent (CFL), light emitting diode (LED), and high-intensity discharge (HID).
