Growing with nutrient film techinque
I have some questions about growing plants hydroponically with nutrient film technique.
I know the main principles how this system works, however I don't understand how should new plants should grow there.
I have planted some lettuce seeds into dirt and they are now already quite big and should be repotted. I am planning to remove the dirt around the roots and put into another pot with expanded clay and put it into my hydroponic system. But how should the new plants get any water and nutrients if their roots don't touch the nutrient film?
Also I'd like to know how big should the pots be to put the plants into?
I hope someone could answer my questions.
