Hydroponic Gardening & More with Brent
I always do organic grows but you are Changing my perspective. I grow for personal use and I don’t care a lot about the yield as much as the health and flavor but my cotelydons are small and wonder if organic really matters. I use promix and bottom water with tap and sea 90 which has all the trace minerals but not much of the npk. The tase is nice but again very small leaves. My favorites are broccoli, radish and pea. Thanks!
Uneven germination was from too cool of temperature. Try an experiment with a warming mat for germination!
Brent, have been impressed with your video's. I just ordered your book and looking forward to start growing my own micro greens no medium. Thank you.
It's good to be back on a familiar channel, my bad for vacating a while as I am right into growing micro greens at this point Brent. I'm on a much smaller scale of course and using soil. I wonder about when you say "Not as good as…" if you mean size and weight or taste-wise? I'll slowly be perusing your micro green back log over the next short while. Cheers 🍺
Very interesting work you are doing. I wonder if you have measured nutrient density between any of these?
What ppm is obtained with a masterbland?
Question: Do the greens produced using MasterBlend end up with higher levels of Potassium? I’ve had trouble with high Potassium in my diet (dialysis) recently. This is normally good for normally functioning kidneys, but otherwise could make you fertilizer (haha) via heart attack. Love your scientific, unbiased approach.
What’s in the anti fungal solution ?
What kind of sprayer do you use ? I can't find a mist one
Hey Brent, I just ordered your book (and some master blend). How do get an invite to your FB group? Thx!
Which lamp light do I need for micro green? Please
Can you help me with micro green farming?
Brent are you using your original anti fungal formula? 1/2 tspoon Potassium bicarb/10 drops Dawn dish soap/15 drops cold press Neem/15 drops Oregano oil/1 liter water
I wonder which would have the highest Brix reading though as far as nutrition grows? Pretty cool experiment Brent,,but as far as organic vrs hydro that's a toughy because most organic solutions are terrible. That's why I make my own,,took me a few years to get it right.
Keep on rocking!
All the best from Australia
the hybrid one definitely looked like its stems was more white.
Looks like Master Blend is the better way to go. Great video. Have a Great Day.
Brent, my question deals with the bags you use for weights. Where did you get them and what are they filled with? Oh ya, WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD QUESTION MASTER BLEND?
WOW…another very interesting and awesome trial. Honestly, I don't see much difference between Masterblend and Hybrid…if there is, I would say Hybrid may have tiny weeney fatter stem…lol…but not enough for me to change to Hybrid if I already use Masterblend. Yes, please do the trial with the Kelp add to the organic 2. Is organic 2 in the book or was it organic 1 that's in the book. Thanks for your hard work…enjoyed it and please keep it coming.
Awesome video Brent, looks like you're making a lot of progress with the organic microgreens, thanks for all the work you do
