Starting up in Hydroponics
We have been very encouraged by the crop of tomatos and cucs that we were able to grow using Earthboxes.
We now would like to advance to Hydroponics. Please excuse any newbie mistakes since we are just getting started.
We purchased a 6 plant DWC hydroponics set up. We would like to use it to grow Romaine lettuce. I would appreciate some advice on a couple of things.
What should we use for the starter seedlings? Are Sure To Grow Cubes a good platform for growing the seedlings? How long should we allow them to grow?
Do we need to fan the plants?
What should we use for a nutrient solution?
Are flourescent lights a good enough lighting source? What do we need to look for in the lights?
Do the plants have to be in total dark at night?
Please indicate anything else that we might have forgotten.
Thanks in advance.
