So one of the things I got for Christmas was a hydroponic system. I finally got it up and running today. I now have peas, arugula, lettuce and radishes growing in our office.
I gathered all of my stuff.
The instructions weren’t great, but I put it together with only one assist from The Husband. It was not clear from the directions that you cut the hose to put in the check valve.
I chose my seeds, I tried peas, beans, tomatoes, arugula, radishes, and lettuce. The first step is to soak the seeds in water for at least three hours.
One of the many uses of lab tape in our household.
Once the seeds were soaked, I put them in damp gauze. To let them germinate.
And some didn’t.
It took a few days, and then I added two gallons of water, and twoish teaspoons of maxigrow.
I placed the seeds in the rock wool, and turned on the pump.
Here’s hoping I have some vegetables soon!
