It’s easy to transplant seedlings from dirt to hydroponics. It is a shock to the plant, so you’ll want to make sure you baby the plant for the first few days. Make sure your water reservoir is full, that you have nutrients in the tower, your pH is correct, and if it’s very hot out, put the plant in a shady spot (under a bigger plant, for example). My success rate with this is about 75%. Message me if you want more info on the Tower Gardens. What are Rapid Rooters?

    Hey great video! So I want to use my rapid rooters going from soil to hydro (rinse roots off etc..) I want to plug them I to the rooter like you did (cut them in half ) and apply to my DWC system. Should I just let the bubbles popping from the air stone hit the rapid rooter? Or should I submerge the whole plug? Also how much of the roots should I let hang out of the bottom ? Or if any at all? If anyone could answer these questions that would be fantastic !

    John, the easiest way is with a TDS meter. I'll message you with more info on that.

    Thanks for all the great tips. Would love to see video on maintaining your nutrient levels, this is an area I have struggled with. Thanks again, john

    Hey, thank you for the nice comment!! I empty and refill once a month. On a brand new tower, I don't start emptying and refilling until month three.
