In Topic: First attempt at Kratky

Yesterday, 02:11 PM

I didn't know there were different types of Kratky. I thought it was just water and nutrients in a large container with a net-pot set into the container lid.



Your description is the traditional Kratky that I have been doing for about 5 years now. There should be no media other than in the net pot.


My bad. That was my Hempy grow.

I had some fun with kratky last season and easiest I found was those cheap laundry tubs with the handles. Mine was a 40ltr from memory. Drilled a hole about 5cm from the bottom. Filled the bottom with course perlite to around 7cm. On top a layer of coir matting (like they use in hanging baskets) and filled up with coco coir to an inch shy of the top. The cat really took a fancy to it so I had to cut a polystyrene lid that I put on the coir. This really helped with moisture balance as the top stayed relatively moist until I watered again which was around every second week. Crops werent great but were weeks ahead of any other plant in soil I had of the same type.

Still going pretty slow for some reason.


Last year I used a custom mix and this year I'm trying a good quality soil with perlite added.

Growth this year not as good for sure.

Second photo is a MOA Scotch Bonnet - Do you think it's sunburn perhaps (I have a number of different varieties doing the same thing).
