#1620173 Fixing Dying Roots and Leaves with Kratky Hydroponics

Nice! I've just started to get into kratky these last few months. Always a learning experience. Thanks for the helpful videos. What kind of peppers were those? Also, I noticed that once it had recuperated and started putting on pods, a lot of the leaves were yellow on the edges. What would have caused that?

Just watched your most recent video. I'm definitely building one for seed starting next year. I always look forward to your videos, you've helped me learn a lot! Because of you, I'm going to be doing 4 55 gallon outdoor Kratky grows this year. Just wanted to thank you, keep the videos coming.

TGCM Mini Red Rocoto and Miraflores Market orange/yellow Rocotos. The mini reds did better IIRC but both did pretty freaking good.
 
I can spare seeds if you want to try them. They will be from the Idaho plants. Open pollinated so the could have crossed.

Look back at this post of mine, post #131 and #136 for pics of his plants. They were loaded with pods by mid/late July

Huge shout-out! ShowMeDaSauce hooked me up big time with seeds! I can't thank you enough! I've got them in wet paper towels as we speak. Hopefully it's not to far into the year for them to produce by fall. I'll keep you all posted as to their progress.

#1617879 When to Plant Outside

Posted by FITN on 06 March 2019 - 10:05 AM

I have a portable walk in green house that i set up in a partially shaded area that i use just for about 2-3 weeks.
I set this up and bring all my plants from the basement....then i can move them from green house to sunshine during the day a lot easier....and also protect from the elements at night until they have been hardened off and no chance of getting any frost....has worked great for me....then take it down and pack it back into the shed.

That's exactly what I have and exactly what I plan on doing. I think my green house is 8x10. It should work great and save me a bunch of work!


#1617791 When to Plant Outside

Posted by FITN on 05 March 2019 - 10:46 PM

I dont know others experience, but I go from basement to greenhouse and after a week to ten days in there they go out into open air full time.


So really, the greenhouse time technically is the hardening off period? If that's the case, that's WAY easier then the couple hours a day, take them outside then bring them back in, method.


#1617734 When to Plant Outside

Posted by FITN on 05 March 2019 - 08:04 PM

This last fall I purchased a small, mobile greenhouse on sale. I've never used a green house before so forgive my ignorance. When I harden of the plants I have currently growing indoors, do I have to harden from house to greenhouse or greenhouse to full outdoors and in the ground? I'm guessing it's from the house to the greenhouse but I figured I'd ask anyway lol....


#1617666 Favorite heirloom tomatoes

Posted by FITN on 05 March 2019 - 01:10 PM

 
Large barred Boar I think you meant, which is a fantastic tomato by the way. Brads Atomic Grape and Black beauty are some serious eye candy as well, gorgeous fruits. Green When ripe tomatoes such as Emerald evergreen are some of my favorites. Nice little list there man. Good luck.

You are correct, I did mean large barred boar. My wife and I sat down and went though Baker Creeks list and picked out the ones we wanted to try. Last night I set them up to germinate. I'm looking forward to trying new tomatoes. I make a ton of salsa and we roast and can lots of tomatoes as well. Gonna be a busy summer!
