Update for my outdoor seedlings. They are loving the warmer weather and continue to grow, happy and healthy!
I cleaned and sanitized the entire aeroponic system with a diluted bleach solution in preparation for new plants. I will be using this system for clones as well so complete sanitation is extra crucial. I stabilized the 10 gallon reservoir with a pH of 6.2, 1024 ppm and average water temperature of 72F. These plants are a combination of what I grew from seed and clones!
Lantana camara aka Lantana moving up to 1 gallon containers. This variety is very popular in Texas and loved by the butterflies!
These babies are ready to go! Some will be going to my aeroponic system others will be dispersed across my other systems/projects.
The strawberry, basil and parsley have been blowing up outside! I’ve harvested quite a few delicious strawberries already and use the basil or parsley almost everyday to cook with!
I inherited a single clone of this Aloe Vera plant from my Great-Grandmother Ritter a few years ago and it has been thriving ever since. Another transplant was much needed – just need to find worthy homes for them in a few months!
Day 18 from seed – everything is getting so big!
Black Seeded Simpson Lettuce
Final update of this aeroponic crop. I will be replacing these with a combination of seedlings that I grew indoors and clones from the aeroponic basil in the top right net cup. Overall, I have nothing but great things to say about the results produced by aeroponics – clean, strong roots, sturdy stems and great tasting product.
Eupatorium greggii aka Blue Mist transplanted into one gallon containers.
Anisacanthus quadrifidus aka Ancanthus Flame transplanted into one gallon containers.
