This video shows how to set up a non-circulating hydroponic system, a.k.a the Kratky Method. For a transcript of this video please visit my website at https://tikki.co/kratky-basics/
I use rockwool to grow seedlings and then net cups and clay pebbles to plant the seedling into containers filled with water. The water contains a hydroponic solution to help feed the plants the nutrients they need. Two solutions are shown, one that works well for leafy greens, the other for fruiting or flowering plants. You will see the Kratky method demonstrated for three different plants in this video; lettuce, cucumbers, and tomatoes. All of these can be grown successfully using the Kratky method indoors with little effort. This video is meant as an introduction to the Kratky Method, if you would like more detail then check out my other videos on the specifics of each type of plant. Experiment, and most of all have fun and enjoy the satisfaction of growing your own vegetables!
