Growing things hydroponically is a learning process. I have been using the kratky method for most of my plantings.I have had some good success, but also a lot of learning experiences along the way. This is the top 7 mitsakes I made in the past year that I managed to capture on video. Check it out and hopefully this won’t happen to you, but if it does, know you are not alone.

    if you want a spectacular plant grow squash or eggplant hydroponically, they look prehistoric they get so huge, I had one take over half my kitchen because it was too big for anywhere else. 2-3 foot leaves are possible.
    Good tips. I shall sub.

    To prevent root rot always ALWAYS add mycorrhizae, the benefit of mycorrhizae is not only does it make your root growth explode but it also kills any bad fungi. And watch your water temps, don't let them get above 78F. The ideal temp is between 65F – 75F the air intake PPM is much higher at those temperatures.

    If you're using hydroton also use rockwool cubes, they are the best medium, just put them in the middle of the cup and surround them on all sides with hydroton.

    For the plants planting at the same time you can put that water all the way up to the cups, there's no reason to keep it down way low at the bottom like that. Nutrients however will be your biggest issue there, as the smaller plants don't need as many as the big ones.

    I'm always running into new problems when growing hydroponically. I'm almost 100% sure i'll have lots of new problems this summer too. I remade my old system but it's untested and added a new rdwc, dwc, micro aquaponics and trying my first kratky with a lettuce. And to top it all off, everything besides the kratky and aqua is being fed with compost tea only and grown in a hot greenhouse.

    Good lessons. Root rot, insufficient nutrients and spider mites are my common problems in some of my hydroponic tree saplings. I wasnt aware that water temperature can trigger root rot. I always assumed i must have over fertilized. I will keep my plants in a cooler place and change water more often. Thanks for the tips.
