Hi guys And gg
Have been a silent reader of ur blog and after long time bought some poly grow bags cocopeat blocks, poorna brand NPK 19 19 19 and neem cake powder some seeds. But i am still confused abt nutrients.
For spinach other than npk what all nutrients r needed? I will be using coco peat as medium or shud i add something to it. And how much nuts shud i be adding. Please suggest a detail schedule so that i can kick start my new hobby.
Thanks for a prompt reply. I stay in hyderabad. Spl mix for tomatoes in GARDEN GURU --- will this be gud to start with for chilly curry leaf capsicum tomatoes and few greens? And i hav few flower plants can i add npk to dem?
EDIT : i have TRACEL from Rallis, and NPK 19 19 19
I hav to get fe in cheleated form and what all do i need? And can i mix the micro nutes and npk same time? Or first npk den micro.. please gg u shud write a detailed post abt nutes, its such a daunting task for us newbies ... please tell me do i need any other nutes .
And Srikanth i need some guidance from u. Wud like to visit sometime ... i stay near hitex grounds. Please provide ur contact.

I currently do not have my hydroponic setup this year after the summer. You can visit / speak to me for guidance but I do not have much to show you live.
I went to most of hyderguda shops today to buy salts and make a nute sol as per ur post. But all of dem had those salts for foliar application... should i buy them? Or there r someother variety?. They said it is water soluable and i can use for drip but i didnt take them since it was labled as foliar.
I have grown Spinach, Fenugreek, Coriander,Chillies and Beans in container using self made potting mix using coco peat, vermiculite and manure (1:1:1). Spinach is the only one which is growing very well. Rest are not showing proper growth.
Fenugreek and Beans ---> Leafs are becoming yellow and thery are not growing in heights.
Coriander --> Short and flowering, less leaves.
Chillies ---> Stunt height.
I'm unable to figure out what I must do to have proper growth. I read about supplying NPK but worried about is it safe to use synthetic fertilizers/ suppliments.
Please advise what I must do to have good healthy plants .
It seems to me that your potting mix severely lacks nutrients. Using synthetic fertilizers (inorganic fertilizers) such as DAP, Potash etc is NOT harmful. You need to understand that all the nutrients that the plants need will eventually have to be converted into plant available form whether it is organic or inorganic. It is the pesticides that you need to worry about and not fertilizers.
You can safely use a solution of NPK 19:19:19. It generally costs around Rs. 150 /kg. Use 5 gm/ liter of water and pour into the containers. You will have to ensure that you use good quality compost. Cocopeat and vermiculate have no nutrients for the plants.
Apart from the NPK the plant needs more nutrients. You should look for a some good quality complete fertilizer mixes.
