Week 4 of the hydroponic system and its definitely looking good. The basil finally decided to make an appearance. The left side is growing rapidly with the coriander and dill doing fantastic and little sage in the middle is doing good but probably needs to be put in another slot to have space to grow for the light to reach. Still no sign of the spinach or oregano and its been 2 weeks so will look into what else to grow. Maybe try another variety of basil and give chamomile a second go.
Its been a week since we started up the hydroponic system so here’s an update on whats happening. Most of the seeds are germinating with Mustard taking only 2 days being the quickest and now Dill is looking pretty good as well. Cilantro will probably be the next to pop up. The middle row is having the hardest time. Oregano and Chamomile were really old seeds so it makes sense that it didn’t germinate but not sure why parsley isn’t happening either. I will be doing weekly updates for my record and maybe for anyone interested in how effective it is.
As I fall further behind with the challenge, here we are with an orchid bud. I’ve been moving the plants around a lot since the many changes in our home to accommodate the new nursery. We are finally seeing the orchids find back their spot and bud. Its a great time even if now that I look at it, its a tad over exposed. I will nee to give this a take two.
After some research and consideration, we decided to get a hydroponic system so we can grow a herb garden at home year-round. After all the assembly, seed soaking and putting them in the basket pods, it was ready to go. Hopefully it delivers as a whole since even if herbs don’t work out, we can still do veggies, fruits or flowers. On a photography level, the lights with the red, blue and white definitely looks like something I can play with for some fun pictures.
