New setup / propogation

g_firkserNovember 11, 2013

Hey ya'll.
I'm starting up a trial hydro setup that's not going to involve any pumps. It's really just using soil replacements, along with nutrient rich water to feed the plants with. All being done using a vermiculite/perlite medium. I'll take some photos of what I'm going to do and hopefully get back some suggestions form everyone here.

Question in the mean time:
Can I simply sprinkle seeds (baby carrots to be exact) over my container which only contains vermiculite/perlite? I was thinking of mixing in some coco coir to help make the medium more stable, but will this still work in theory for propagation?



Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

It sounds like wick hydroponics. And I think the carrot seeds should start fine that way, as long as the moisture reaches them.
