Starting Seeds in Hydroponics

by Margo
(Harrisburg, PA)


I am starting my seeds directly in 1.5" rockwool cubes in Hydroton in individual buckets. The 2 seeds have just started to sprout. They are uner 400 watts HPS. They are not yet over the top of the rockwool cube. When should I start adding nutrients? Thanks in advance for your help.

Answer from Stella/Simon:

Hi Margo,

You shouldn't need to start nutrients until the seedling is quite big. Depending on type of crop, an inch or 2. when you are sprouting seeds, you only have to keep them moist with regular water. Seeds compact with its own food to the seedling gets up and running.

Hope this helps!
