This is a fun one for you all. If you use a LOT of basil in the kitchen like I do, using the method I outline in this video is an easy way to harvest basil forever and ever off of ONE initial mother plant! The method is known as the Kratky method of hydroponics, where you use NO electrical parts, no pumps, no airstones. All you do is place a rooted cutting or seedling into a reservoir and let it drink down the water and use up nutrients. When there’s no water left, you simply harvest the remaining leaves on a plant and move on to the next one! If you want to create an endless basil supple, all you need to do is stagger your cuttings so you have: – 1 basil plant rooting – 1 basil plant in mild growth – 1 basil plant in aggressive vegetative growth – 1 basil plant at the end of it’s life cycle As long as you keep ~4 plants going at a time in different stages of the growth cycle, you’ll NEVER run out of basil.
