So there you have it, this is my indoor basil DWC which is comprised of 3 seperate parts:
1 Thai Basil plant that’s still just a baby (as you can see by it’s small roots) in a 5 gallon DWC
6 basil clones in a cloner bucket that has been modified to be used as a DWC
1 basil clone that started in the cloner but now has it’s own 5 gallon DWC bucket to live in.
Originally I had a cloner bucket I had bought and obtained some basil clones for. Once they got big enough, I didn’t know what to do with them, but since I had some spare buckets, netpots and airstones laying around I decided to give two their own homes in standalone DWC’s to see which grow better. In each bucket I am using Flora Duo from General Hydroponics at a strength of ~500ppm. (Note, the PPM doesn’t really matter, i’ve ran it from 300-1000 and it doesn’t seem to make a notable difference). The PH in each bucket is kept as close to 5.8-6.0 as I can get it.
The secret ingredient however is something that I use with all my plants when they are young and still trying to grow their roots: Rapid Start Root EnhancerRapid Root
