    I am having trouble deciding when to shift the seedlings from germination to the growing part. any tips? I mess up every time. i'm using neem oil to ward off the pests. any other suggestions to keep the growing chemical-free?

    Rob, I grow (plants) in this same method as your peppers, I always cut a lid from the reflective material to cover all possible source of light leaks.

    Hey Rob Bob; I believe the wrinkly twisty leaves you saw could actually be from what you were cautioning about the water level–the leaves looked overwatered to me especially in regards to what you were saying about having not seen aphids or other pests that would have caused damage.

    Hi Rob, I was wondering where you purchased your "Bloom" from? Was it a big box store, on line or at a speciality hydroponics store. I live in Wynnum, Brisbane. so hoping to find something close. Also does that Bloom have NPK rating?

    Why does every moron and their dog call this the kratkey? Kratkey didn't figure it out or invent it or anything. I remember in the 70s my mom did this same thing, years before kratkey did it.

    I've seen 100 year old books outline the exact same method.

    I also invented a new method. It's called the Harley method. It's where you put a plant in dirt and water it.

    SMFH people need to open their eyes. Learn how to learn. Everyone's just so busy believing everything they are told.

    Lizzie sure is a cutie! Glad to see all is well. Take care Rob!

    That's a good idea separating the chemicals, as I understand a few react unfavorably together, at least in concentrate.

  • Jesse Parker 1 week ago

    It would be interesting to do an experiment comparing the effect of an air stone with no air stone. I suspect gas exchange in the root zone is limiting growth. I've got a kratky method jar going right now. Simple and easy – i love it!

    Great update Rob, it's looking good mate. I've dabbled in what I call "static solution hydroponics", what you call "kratky".
    I don't mind it, something to keep in mind for yourself, in my experience, I frequently keep the ability to flick it over to a deep water culture because there are many reasons to do so for a short time.
    For instance if I the water to air ratio in the root system gets finicky (which it can sometimes do, I'm sure you will find, especially in the middle of summer with high transpiration), or when I add in a new plant with a smaller root system and need to fill the water up quite high.
    Using a timer on the power point of the air pump i distance the pump times further apart as the water level drops back down the the desired level before taking the air pump away all together.
    I am a long time viewer, I'll help out with podia when I can.
    Cheers from Mitch from the ACT.
