Indoor hydroponic seedling transplanting method: how to grow seedlings and transplant
When it comes to hydroponic planting, if you don't have relevant experience, you won't be able to raise seedlings, transplant and operate hydroponic systems well. Here we share a method of raising seedlings and transplanting, hoping to help you.
Generally, the seedling time of green leafy vegetables is about 15 days. If it is tomatoes and cucumbers, the seedling time will be relatively longer.
We grow seedlings on the microgreen system. For ordinary small-scale seedling cultivation, we use 3-1 microgreen system for indoor water cultivation, and for large-scale seedling cultivation, we use larger-scale microgreen system for commercial seedling cultivation.
First, we will put the seeds in the soaked rock wool, then put the rock wool filled with seeds into the seedling tray, and then put the seedling tray into the tray of our microgreen system. In this way, the microgreen system It will be watered automatically, and the vegetable seedlings will be cultivated in about 15 days, and you can transplant them at this time.
How to transplant
Tools used: planting basket hydroponic system
- The rock wool is divided into small pieces. After the vegetable seedlings are cultivated, we can divide the surface of the cultivated vegetable seedlings into several small pieces, and each small piece of rock surface will have a vegetable seedling, so the rock wool with vegetable seedlings can be divided into multiple small pieces.
- Put the rock wool into the planter basket. Place each small piece of rock wool with vegetable seedlings into the prepared planter basket.
-Put the planting basket into the planting hole of the hydroponic system. After you put the rock wool into the planter basket, you can place the planter basket into the planting hole of your hydroponic system. If it is a rotating tower system, you put it into the planting hole of the tower system, and if it is an NFT system, put the planting basket into the planting of the NFT system.
After you put all the planting baskets containing vegetable seedlings into the planting holes of the hydroponic system, the transplanting step is completed, and then you can adjust the hydroponic system and wait for the vegetable seedlings to grow.
In about 4 weeks, the vegetable sprouts will grow into large, green vegetables, which is when you can harvest them.
