DON'T PLANT BROCCOLI! It takes forever to make.

RE: Preferred methods and success and failures

my only real failures resulted in this knowledge:
*if you're going to use a system that circulates the nutrient past/through the roots, make sure it moves enough that they get ample oxygen.
*Make sure the stem above the crown (root/stem interface) doesn't get saturated too often (not at all if possible) as this can deteriorate the stem and make it collapse.
Other than that, I've had pretty good success.

RE: Preferred methods and success and failures

Every little bit of info helps. But with many things advice and only take you so far. Somethings u have to try and fail at yourself. As I have talked about with charlielittle, Im just starting out and he has given me some good advice "pretty cool guy". I guess I may try tomatoes and stuff like that. Thanks anyway keep the post comin if ya gottem.
