Hydroponic Green Peas, Newbie please help!
Could someone please help me with growing green (English 'shelling') peas? I'm thinking in a DWC in a tub or two, probably 18 gallons each, just with a bubbler to keep everything simple for starters. My indoor lighting is rather weak by a window without direct sunlight and always @ 75 degrees F.
Would like to get something rolling to grow between 1/4 and 1/2 pound a week. Only the shelling pod type. That's the net weight, so with the discarded pods it would be about a pound of fresh picked peas in the pod.
I worry is that peas' roots are hard to keep healthy, indoor humidity is about 55%, so I'm most interested to know whether DWC is appropriate, or I need to make something a bit more complicated to keep the production running with care to keep picking before pods mature...any tips on the media and whether I'm reasonable about the production, tips and management of the water level.
