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?
sorry for your spinach. i dont know anything about hydroponic, so obivious i dont have any idea. but i request you to plz explain your setup, also with pictures, if possible. this will provide the learning source for a novice like me and experts can easily understand your situation to find a solution for you.
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.
