Restarting The Hyrdoculture Experiment

Posted on Oct 18 2010 - 3:49am by Mike Lieberman

I am going to restart my experiment in starting seeds using hydroculture.

After the first week, there was nothing. No sprouts. Nada.

I thought, and from what people were saying, it could’ve been because they were getting too dry. So I put a tray under them and kept that filled with water. Still nothing.

It was then suggested that it could be too dry for them being outdoors.

I’m not one to give up easily and want to get this to work. They have now been brought back indoors to pretty much start from the beginning again.

I took some water with fresh squeezed lemon and poured it onto the seeds and rockwool. The egg carton is still sitting in the tray to catch the water and to keep moist. I’ve also put a sheet of plastic over the top to keep the moisture up as well.

Hopefully in the next few days, they will have sprouts.

Anything else you think I can do?

It’s been about three weeks since I started seeds using hydroculture as an experiment. They still haven’t sprouted. Nada.
