What's the best solution for growing garlic with hydroponics?



Just a quick comment on growing garlic hydroponically.

Don't do it! I tried, with much success, simply planted some cloves in some perlite and watered them with a simple nutrient. Under a 400 W MH light, the plants flourished.

Sounds good right?

What you may forget about it how STRONG garlic smells. The stems are easily as strong smelling as the cloves.

So if you don't mind stinking up your grow room. (Or maybe you'd like to cover up the smell of something else!) then go for it. I can tell you after about a month, I came home and my wife had went into the basement and pitched the whole lot! :)

So much for hydro-garlic!

I bet you didn't have a vampire problem.



hi ron

is it normal to experience EC level going up as days pass ? water level go down ...

isnt it while plant eats up the nutrient in water, the EC should go down ?

zingman

When you experience some evaporation of your nutrient solution then the PPM would rise some.



Hi Ron, What are the dimensions of your 11 plants systems? (Length X Width of the piping only) I'm thinking of building a housing for the 11 plant systems. Thanks!!

Let me get my damn measuring tape out again. Would someone write this down so I don't have to do it again. 
35" X 17" pipe only no bottles.



Ron,

I'm just now getting a 16 plant bottle system started. I bought some plants from the nursery and am in the process of washing the roots. My problem is: The planting media in the nursery pots contains many large particles of leaves, and other fairly large particles of wood chips, etc.

It's difficult to get the roots 100% clean, before transplanting in the grow rocks, because the root system in the plant is like a net, it holds all the larger particles and you can't get them out.

Do you have any suggestion on what to do?

Tailwheel

As long as the particles won't dislodge from the roots then it is ok to leave them. It only becomes a problem when particle work there way through your system and clog your pump.



How can I reduce my high power bill? I am running 3 1000w and 4 400w grow-18/6 bud-12/12 any help would be appreciated. chazza57

By downsizing. If your power bill is out of the norm of your neighborhoods then you might be real close to being raided no matter what you are growing.
