So, yeah, you can grow hydroponic beets in the greenhouse. This harvest shows that you can and the lesson learned? Well, thin them to 10 or 15 per 12″ diameter container! What do you think?

Share your gardening thoughts and pictures! https://www.facebook.com/c3voyage/ . A little about my setup. I have a hydroponic greenhouse. I grow in a system I call FAWN which is a modified hydroponic drip system. The media I grow in is aged rice hulls with parboiled rice hulls mixed. This has proven to be a great mix for me. I use Masterblend fertilizer as my nutrients to every plant grown. I’ve been pretty successful with my setup growing hydroponic tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, squash, cucumbers, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, turnip greens, corn, potatoes, kale, carrots, beets, spinach, onions, leeks, and even okra! Everything a gardener would desire. I also dabble in other areas like growing in raised beds, growing in a ground garden, grafting, pond activities, growing fruits, and other projects on the homestead. Thank you so much for stopping in!

    Thanks for sharing your results. The bigger ones looked good. Is there a beet pickling video coming?

    Brent: Nice crop for small space. You are right about them just needing a little more space. Bernard

    Hi Brent,

    We all learned the hard way. I'm not growing beets but I did attempt my very first radishes this year. According to YouTube, radishes are the easiest vegetable to grow in containers…well other than the fact that they sprout easily, I'm not so sure about the easy part. I didn't thin them out as aggressively as I should. My first harvest was mostly greens LOL (at least the greens were edible so not a total loss) A few that did form into bulbs were the size of a cranberry ☹️. I immediately thinned out my second sets of radishes after that failed first harvest hoping THAT will do the trick!

    I think your right, Maybe less in each container would do the trick. The larger ones look really good, so more of those would be nice. The small ones are usually good too, just small. I love beets but have never grown them. Think I will try some in containers, I've never planted in containers either. I love beats boiled and buttered, and pickled too, either way is fine with me. I'm not going to try the hydroponic, at least not until I try the container growing first. I bet your beets turned out pretty good. You can't go wrong with a beet, unless of course it starts getting woody. Bless, Sheila
