  • Do you alway switch the hydro solution every week? Have you tried to just let it go for 30 days? Or do you get much better results this way?

  • I studied the Kratky method of hydroponics while attending college in Hawaii. We never "changed out" the nutrient solution of plants we grew in closed containers, as this method allowed us to add all the water and nutrients the plants would need throughout their entire growth cycle. Some of the larger setups used a float valve to ensure two inches of the nutrient solution persisted in the long grow beds, but even those never flushed the original nutrients or water.

    I guess I'm confused as to why you are repeatedly flushing the nutrient and water solution for this grow. Any insight would be helpful, and thanks for helping to promote simple ways of growing fresh greens like this. Once you know truly fresh lettuce and other vegetation, you'll never want to buy the overpriced, over-shipped, under-flavored, and simply old produce from the grocery store.
