Lived in a busy city, do you want to experience the fun of growing vegetables yourself at home? Today, I will bring you home-based hydroponic vegetable cultivation teaching, hope this article can help you.

What is hydroponics?

Hydroponic culture is a kind of soilless cultivation. It belongs to the non-matrix cultivation. The non-matrix cultivation type refers to the absence of matrix fixed roots in the environment of plant root growth. The roots grow in nutrient solution or humid air containing the nutrient solution. But may use some matrix during seedling.

Hydroponic system

Pipeline planting is also the most common type of domestic hydroponic vegetable planting.

This hydroponic planting is easy to install and install, and it has a small footprint and high planting efficiency. It is the first choice for domestic hydroponic cultivation and greenhouse cultivation. Pipeline hydroponics is connected and can be connected in layers to achieve a small footprint and high planting efficiency. It is shown as below:

Spiral hydroponic planting system: Rotary design, beautiful and practical, widely used in home landscape and greenhouse cultivation.

Feature one:

The spiral stereo hydroponic system consists of a cylindrical fixture (top or bottom) with multiple spirals. The water is routed to the top of the spiral and back to the bottom tank.

Feature 2:

It has the characteristics of energy saving and environmental protection, large greening capacity, beautiful and easy management, and has broad prospects in beautification and greening and urban agriculture. Fully automatic water circulation system, efficient and safe

Feature three:

At the same time, various dwarf, hanging herb plants and various leafy vegetables can be cultivated at the same time according to the needs of various plants.

It has the characteristics of energy saving and environmental protection, large greening capacity, beautiful and easy management, and has broad prospects in beautification and greening and urban agriculture.

So what should I do next after I have selected the planting rack?

First of all, it is necessary to raise seedlings. Seedling seedlings and seedling lamps are needed for seedlings. If you are new, it is recommended to purchase in the market. After you buy the seedlings, the vegetable seedlings are wrapped in a root part with a sponge, and then placed in a custom basket. Be careful not to break the root system. After putting the vegetable seedlings in the planting basket, put the vegetable seedlings into the pipe planting tank.

The next step is to add the nutrient solution. The preparation of nutrient solution is the core technology for the normal growth of hydroponic vegetables, and it is also the basis and key to soilless culture. (Related article: 6 Keys For The Preparation Of Vegetable Soilless Nutrient Solution)

According to the demand for nutrients in plant growth, a solution prepared by dissolving a certain amount of fertilizer in water in an appropriate ratio is called a nutrient solution.

The success of hydroponics depends to a large extent on the formulation of the nutrient solution, the concentration, the proportion of various nutrients, the pH, the liquid temperature, and whether the nutrient solution management during plant growth can meet different growth stages. Claim.

Only by adopting the correct formula and formulating and managing the nutrient solution according to the appropriate method, so that the plant can be used in the most suitable nutrient solution environment at any time of growth and development, the plant can use more energy for growth, flowering and fruiting. Get fast, high-yield, high-quality cultivation results.

It is recommended to ask the merchant for the vegetable when buying the nutrient solution. The nutrient solution for different vegetable configurations is also different.

Thirdly, When hydroponic cultivation, it is necessary to manage the adjustment of the supply time of the nutrient solution and the number of liquid supply.

The liquid supply time and the number of liquid supply times of the nutrient solution are mainly determined according to the cultivation form, the growth state of the vegetables, and the environmental conditions.

In the cultivation process, the liquid should be supplied in a timely manner to ensure adequate nutrient supply.

The liquid supply time is generally selected during the day and no liquid supply or less liquid supply at night. The number of liquid supply on sunny days is more, and there is less liquid supply on rainy days; when the temperature is high, the light is stronger, and vice versa.

Usually, the liquid is supplied 2-4 times a day, and it can be grasped for 30 minutes each time. This can be adjusted at the right time with the timing controller.

The nutrient solution should be replaced at the right time after use. Because the nutrient solution gradually accumulates too many substances that hinder plant growth during use, the nutrition is not balanced, and the germs multiply, causing root growth to be blocked and even causing plant death.

Generally, for vegetables with a short growth cycle, the nutrient solution is replaced once per meal. For fruits and vegetables, replace the nutrient solution every 1-2 months.
