Nutrient Solution?

I started with Hydroponics several months ago. I have several vegetables growing at different stages so I am contantly mixing up different batches of nutrient solution. I would love it if I could make up a big batch for each stage and use as needed. How far in advance is it OK to mix up the solution?

Thanks, Joyce

Answer from Stella/Simon:

Hi Joyce,
First the bad news: It is not a good idea to mix nutrient solutions way ahead of time.
The good news: I think you are making the whole thing way too complicated! Mix up the grow solution while your plants are mostly young green things, putting out shoots and leaves. When MOST of your plants start getting flowers or fruits, switch to the flowering/fruiting solution. Even if some crops are not there yet. Just go with the majority of plants in either stage. No need to keep mixing and changing solutions for individual plants!
Problem solved; have fun!
Stella
Hope this helps!

How to Build Your Own Aquaponics Organic Gardening System
by: Mel L.

If you want to eliminate the need for having to deal with nutrient solutions, then try aquaponics. I have been growing using different methods of hydroponics and aquaponics is the easiest to maintain and set up. All you have to do is feed the fish and keep them healthy and they will keep your plants healthy. Best of all, your garden will be 100% organic and chemical free.
