Wonderful solutions to slove the six common troubles while using indoor hydroponic garden.
Normally, growing is not a simple matter, especially for a beginner.
Under the assistance of the indoor garden light, it will be easier. Let’s see which situations you may meet in seedling stage
① Seed lodging and overgrowth
Reason: The seeds are sown too much, and the seeds are squeezed out of small holes due to germination, which leads to lodging and lengthening.
Solution: Sow three seeds for leafy vegetables and two seeds for fruits, and sow them in small holes.
Current solution: clear the leggy, lodging seedlings, leaving short, stout seedlings. If not, rebroadcast.
② Seeds grow small holes
Reason: The seeds are not firmly rooted.
Solution: Sow in the deepest part of the hole when sowing, avoid sowing in the hole or shallower place.
Current solution: Use special tweezers to carefully put the roots of the seedlings back into the small holes, and cover the seedling cover.
③ Sudden death of seeds after emergence
Reason: High humidity and high temperature. Individual plant differences (plants themselves are intolerant to resistance).
Solution: Replace the substrate and reseed. (Or clip the dead stubble, and then re-sown)
④ The seeds wilt after emergence
Reason: The nursery cover is not covered properly, or the nursery cover is removed too early. Seedlings wilt due to air circulation and rapid water evaporation. There are individual differences in plants.
Solution: Do not remove the nursery cover too early. Cover the nursery cover.
Current solution: Cover the nursery cover
Degree to which the nursery cover can be removed: two cotyledons spread and the plant is strong
⑤ The seedling appears macular, incomplete, nd poor grow
Reason: The seed itself has a problem. The seeds were accidentally damaged after emergence. The general reason is the former.
Solution: Observe whether the seeds are in good condition when sowing, and give priority to seeds that are healthy and not empty.
Red wrinkle lettuce seeds Dwarf tomato seeds
Large leaf basil seeds Lemon mint seeds
Current solution: When selecting seedlings, pay attention to choosing small and healthy seedlings with short, strong plants. Only one plant is recommended to be removed for reseeding, and the remaining plants are clipped clean. (It’s best to replace the substrate for reseeding)
Unhealthy seedlings clean tweezers to remove
When removing, the side matrix can be clipped out, but the hole should not be too large
The above is part of the situation you may meet when you use mini garden during the seedling stage. If you have a indoor hydroponic vegetable garden, please start growing some plants with the help of our tips!
