Growing Strawberries Hydroponically – Strawberry is the extremely popular fruit that widely valued for its typical aroma, bright red color, juicy texture, and sweetness. These plants also contain a lot of beneficial vitamins and other substances. Moreover, you can enjoy and consume them in many various tasty ways of dietary or meals, as well as drinks.

Home-grown strawberries that taste delicious will be worth pursuing. In fact, strawberries are incredibly easy to grow. Strawberry plants can be grown almost anywhere – in borders, containers or hanging baskets.  Traditionally, strawberries are so adaptable, in which they just need sun, shelter, and fertile, well-drained soil.

As another method of growing, you can get year-round fresh berries by applying a hydroponics system. You can start your own strawberry planting by purchasing the strawberry starter runners available at your local or nearby garden supply stores. These seedling plants are perhaps only available in late winter to early spring. Pick the best runners, instead of the unhealthy or damage ones.

As a tip, it is better for you to buy strawberry plant runners from a garden supply store instead of removing them from an outdoor garden. Why? This will reduce the risk of introducing pathogens or soil-borne diseases into your hydroponic garden. If you happen to get seed from soiled-outdoor garden, thus you have to rinse the plant in clean water. Also, you can immerse the plant, for about 20 minutes, into a root-fungicide solution which you can purchase at plant supply stores.

For your information, Growing Strawberries Hydroponically prefer cold stimulation before planting. Therefore, you have to place the starter runners in a refrigerator for six to 12 weeks. This will help them to jump-start growing and producing flowers soon after planted into certain hydroponics system. You can plant the runners in a netted hydroponic pot contained with soil-less medium. You have to make sure that the strawberry plant root and bottom stem is covered to a depth of at least 2 inches.
