I have been growing strawberries for a number of years now, along with a few other fruits and vegetable. Anyway about 6 months ago I was talking with one of my friends about a pest problem I had with a few of my strawberries plants.
Anyway my find told me about this TV program he had been watching about how farmers can now grow all kinds of plants in water without soil (hydroponics), which helps to stop pests from affecting the crop.
The growing of platys with hydroponics is very big in Holland where it is used indoors and also outdoors or in green houses. As my friend described more of what he had learnt form the TV program he had seen I become more and more interested in it.
There seems to be a lot of complicated science to understand abbot how a plant can grow in just water, well after my convocation with my friend about the TV show he had seen I had a lot of ideas and question about how I could do it myself to grow hydroponic strawberries myself. So I set out on a little research project to find out more.
I decided to give hydroponic strawberries a try
After learning about hydroponic strawberries from my fined, I decided to get online and learn more about it and what's involved. So I want on line and I had a look around online for some information and very quirkily become very confuted by all the different information out there on the subject of hydroponics grading.
Well after a day or so of online research I worked out the basics I needed to start growing my strawberries plans with hydroponics. My first crop were grown with some strawberries plants I bought from the garden center, and I was surprised at how fast they grew, the final crop was well over twice what I would normally get when I grew my strawberries in soil, and also there was no issues with insects and pests on the plants also.
When I was looking for help to get started with growing strawberries with hydroponics I was confused with all the complicated information out on the internet about what's involved. Well after hours of research online I finally broke it down to three key areas to work out to get a hydrophobic system up and running.
The three key areas to sort out to start growing the biggest strawberries ever
1) The first key area you need to work out is which a hydroponics system you will use.
2) The second thing you need to work out is what hydroponics nutrients you will use
3) And the final thing you need to work out if you are growing your strawberries indoors is a plant lighting system or hydroponics lighting system.
If you would like to double your strawberries crop and double the sizes of your strawberries I seriously recommend that you have a go at growing your strawberries with hydroponics and see the differences for yourself it's amazing the results you can achieve.
