This is a continuation of the potatoes I have growing in my FAWN system. I had 9 containers grow Rooster and Red Norland potatoes. These potatoes were dying back. Well 2 were for sure. I ended up getting a good deal of potatoes, but it took 3 pots to do it. If I can get this much out of one pot, I’ll have reached where I want to be. Enjoy the potato reveal! Potatoes were greenhouse grown in what’s known as a modified hydroponic dutch bucket system using rice hulls as the medium and Masterblend as the nutrient.
WHAT IS HYDROPONIC? FOR THOSE DOUBTING. The purest form is “Water Culture” where plants grow directly in a solution that provides the nutrients they need. However, there are tons of media used as well. Most use media as a carrier of the solution and to support the plant offering stability to the roots. The media is most often sterile and can include ANYTHING such as the rice hulls I use in this video, peat, perlite, rocks, pebbles, sand, grow stones, hydroton, coco coir, rockwool, gravel, sawdust, or just about anything you can imagine. It can also include mats such as hemp, fiber, wood, etc. If one is to grow root crops hydroponically, it is essential to grow in a favorable grow media because they don’t grow in water well at all. I pinned this because people keep saying, “This isn’t hydroponics”, and for those who say it, please do some research, hydroponics is a rich environment NOT restricted to perceptions of the few. Don’t take my word for it. Google “Hydroponic Grow Media” and read up on for yourself. Also, do a search in YouTube for “Hydroponic Drip Systems.” After reading a little on both, this video may make more sense. Always here to answer questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
