A few questions has been asked on my blog and in this article I will be answering them. Hope it contains enough information for you guys!
Worms in hydroponics
I don’t think that this is a good idea. Because in a hydroponic system, people mostly use chemical nutrients. And a worm will definitely die in these chemicals. So if you want to put worms in your hydroponic system, make sure you’re using natural nutrients. For example worm tea.
Organic way to kill grubs
You can start a
Garden Insectary and attract other animals that can eat the grubs.
The other option is to use Milky Spore. It is a bacteria that iis very effective against grubs. And it lasts for years.
Or beneficial nematodes. They eat grubs and transmit bacteria that kills them.
I’ve never tried a hanging hydroponic system. But this idea can be great for people with less space for gardening. If I ever design a system like this, I will post an article on how to make a system that will be hanging.
When to pick tomatoes hydroponic
The best time to pick your tomatoes is when they start to soften. Doesn’t matter where they are planted.
Store your tomatoes in a room where the temperature is above 25 degrees celsius. And it’s best to use them in 1 day.
When tomatoes are stored in a refrigerator, they will start to rotten faster than normal. Find more information here.
