But first, I omitted to share with you the analysis of the alpaca poo we had done.
|Alapaca poo analysis|
|Results of grape waste (pomace) analysis|
Of the various experiments I am trying out, I planted some cabbage seedlings in the gravity fed hydroponic system, and some in the ground below the hydroponics. [One of my brothers reckons that cabbage needs a firm footing (in the ground) and he is doubtful that growing them hydroponically will work. I'm not looking to grow champion sized cabbages, so let's see ;) ]
But, and for update on the cabbages I planted only three weeks ago:
This is the cabbage in the ground. Not much change there, is there. They were planted with some additional alpaca poo.
|The control "ground planted" cabbage -|
not much change from when it was planted
out from the seedling tray
|The hydroponically growing cabbage - almost|
double the size and far sturdier looking
leaves and plant, and more abundant growth
|Water catchment tank specifications|
I will update as the two plants progress - until one of them reaches cabbage head stage... :)
