I did my experiment with spinach...unfortunately it didnt go as expected. I transplanted saplings with a couple of first leaves into my hydroponic tub and placed them in netted pots such that half of the roots are submerged in hydroponic solution ( 5gm soluble NPK per liter). I used pebbles as substrate.

 

However, just after 3 hours my plants started dying 🙁 Any suggestions? Should I wait for the plants to grow more and then transplant? Should i submerge roots entirely? Should I aerate the water?

I will post more pics when I get more time. For now look at http://www.srikanthkoka.com/spinach1.jpg.

 

In my opinion spinach is the easiest of all plants to grow. It withstands all kinds of abuse.

 

I do not mind spending time to guide you with the setup provided you take some time yourself to describe your setup and problem in detail. TIP: I did not transplant.

You could use just about any nutrient solution formula. You can try Howard Resh's formula. The roots do not rot because in DWC oxygen is supplied continously through aquarium air pump.
