Just recently I decided I’d like to try some strawberries in an NFT system because I was so inspired by my buddy Larry’s (Austin Family Gardening) amazing successes. I noticed my strawberries were sending out runners so I thought I’d just root them out in Coco Coir and also try Pearlite as a rooting medium. Both worked but the Coco way out performed the Pearlite. I also talk about some future plans to try some long distance growing tests with a few other growers. I hope you enjoy the video. Please give a thumbs up if you liked the video or better yet subscribe.

    Brock my strawberry plants didn't seem to send out any runner shoots last season. I am wondering if they were too dry? Does any one know what I might be doing wrong? Or do some plants send runners on their second season?

    The best way to grow plants and fruits without toxic chemicals with hydroponics system is taking advantage of hydroponics pro, without the need to try and fail like them before!

    I noticed that someone told him that if you laugh uncontrollably in your video you'll get more "likes".  Well, it's not working.  I think that "authentic laughter" might be better.

    Hi Brock, Just sending you a picture of my PUPS from my dwarf Banana plant. They are so beautiful. But to my surprise i also found another adult PUP hiding behind the mature plant. And it also looks a lot like yours. I think they probably come from the same family. To you and all, have a nice day and be good to all. Paul

    I am not into plants but i have been laughing for the past hour watching your videos. The only green thumb i have is for my dwarf banana tree. In Montreal we love beer as much as you. The big difference is the temperature. I can't wait for my Dwarf banana plat to grow up so i can pass to my 1,5 liter beer mug. 
    Take care and all the best.

    Paul

    The issue with hydroponics is that you will need to purchase "plant food" or nutrients and supplements which are pricey.

    I want to overwinter my strawberries for the increased abundance next year. How do you over winter them? Should I take them out of the netipots and plant them in the fall? Keep them in the neti pots?
