I hadn’t planned on blogging about this because I simply don’t grow things very well. I mean my thumb is basically black. I can raise sheep, chickens, and goats, but I can not grow anything.
I started reading about The Kratky method of DWC hydroponics. My reading progressed to video watching. Usually once that happens it is only a matter of time before I jump in and try it. So I did.
I got some lettuce seeds. Then I started them in some rockwool cubes. The rest is growing history for me. The attached pic is 20 days in from seed, and I could not be happier. I mean it literally is “set it and forget it”. All I do is watch it grow.
Then I got chippy. My wife had a basil plant that was basically dying. It looked terrible. I took 4 cuttings, and placed them in the rockwool. After about a week roots formed. Now 14 days after clipping they are growing like crazy. I am still in disbelief.
Anyway, I just really wanted to share my little success. Now I am going to try spinach and cucumbers. I have converted my wife’s office into a grow room. Just so excited.
Good Luck!!! And thanks for reading.
