Yeah. The majority of translations make no sense at all. Still, I'll do my best.

OK. Thanks for all the responses. Very encouraging. Next week I will transplant my seedlings, so will report back on how I fare.
Thanks again.

I don't see any benefits with coco fiber/mixture. Jus carv rockwool cube and place seedling there. Or put seedling straight to pebbles. Just remember keep pebbles moist and you are ready to go...

I put always my cuttings to pebbles(ebb and flood), after they have 2-4cm roots already.


Ok. Thanks Miksaa. It was just my understanding that the transition from soil to rockwool might set the seedling back a bit due to their different structures. As I said. I'll give it a go anyway

Did you do it this way so that the coco was contained withing the cube? What difference would it make to my idea of filling the hole from the top of the cube?

I thought that the rockwool cube might not stay intact if I dug a hole in it. I also wanted to make sure that the coco fibre didn't end up in the bubbler and that the seedlings would stay firmly where I planted them. Then again I suppose doing it your way would work just as well.




Ah yes. Thats what I thought. I might do a few your way and a few mine for a comparison! Thanks for your advice.

Ok. Thanks Bluesman. I'll have to look for something similar.

Thanks Jepa. Yeah I reckon the sooner the better. Let me know how they get on by the way.

Thanks Bluesman. That looks good. Where do you get those passive hydro pots?

Aaa they are young plants? More better! Then there wouldn't be any problems with them  :) If they are bigger plants with more roots, then it's gonna take longer to get all the soil away from that root jungle.. But absolutely not hard to get work! The weak hydrogen peroxide you mention is also good stuff to use weekly. If the plants allow that  :) If they don't like it that often, the answer is simple: not so often.


Great. Thanks Jepa.

Yes they are only seedlings at the moment, with 1 set of true leaves. I'll move them when they get 3 sets of leaves or so, into a rockwool cube like this: http://www.bloomandgrow.ie/rockwool-3-inch

...filling the hole, with the perlite/coco mixture

Your method sounds pretty good. Also you can literally take them to a shower after pulling them out from soil. But first gently clean the roots with hands.

Bubbler itself is also a good washing method..  ;D Just switch the waters everyday as long as there is soil in roots or dissolved in water.


Thanks Jepa.

Yeah, I'll give them a wash after I take them out of the soil. Others have recommended washing with a weak hydrogen peroxide (H2o2) solution. I'm also gonna wait until they have a few sets of leaves before moving them. The general consensus seems to be to move before they get too big.

Hydroponic growing / Moving from Soil to Hydro.

Hi. Due to a rushed start to the season, I ended up sowing my seeds in soil, despite the fact that I need to move them to an ebb and flood in expanded clay pebbles. So now I need to transplant seedlings from soil to pebbles. I was thinking of doing this in 2 steps.

1. Move from soil to 3 inch rockwool cubes with their holes filled with a coco/perlite mixture (I thought this might reduce the transplant shock as coco/perlite mixture would be structurally more like soil.)
2. When roots grow through coco/perlite/rockwool transplant rockwool cube to expanded clay in ebb.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

Hydroponic growing / Electrical Equipment
joulukuu 12, 2011, 17:34:10 ip
Hi there.

I'm just wondering what sort of equipment people use for hydroponics in their greenhouses. I am looking to electrify my greenhouse, and with the possiblity of hydroponic growing in mind, I was wondering what type of electronic timers people use. Do they have to be weather/damp proofed?

Are they something like this:http://www.diy.com/nav/fix/electrical/switches-sockets/outdoor-switches-sockets/mk_masterseal/MK-Masterseal-Single-Socket-With-Electronic-Timer-1Gang-Grey-13-Amp-9415229

Or can something cheaper be used?

Thanks

Bonchi / Vs: Annums as Bonchi
marraskuu 29, 2011, 18:00:13 ip
Thanks Macex. Very beautiful plant. I'm gonna concentrate on trying to overwinter some tasty plants each year I think, although they may never be as beautiful as this plant. I'll let you know if they survive. Thanks.

Thanks Macex. I'm chiefly using bonchi to overwinter some plants. Are Bolivian rainbow a tasty plant, or are they just ornamental? Maybe for next year. This year I have just made bonchi from the Cheyenne and Cayenne and some Dorset Naga.

Thanks

Hi there.
I'm just wondering if anyone has experience of making bonchi with capsicum annums. If so what varieties? I am trying my hand at Cayenne and Cheyenne. Am I wasting my time?

Thanks

Hi there.

I'm just wondering has anybody any experience with the seed company "semillas.de"? Are they reputable?

Thanks.
