Hi all

For valentines day this year my wife got me a nft hydroponic system

I have a very healthy working can o worm worm farm, and have read that a proper made compost tea can be used as an organic nutrient solution for hydroponics.

Has anyone had success in putting this through their system

Question(s)
How often do you change the solution in your tank
How much fresh worm casting do you put in your holding bag

Any other suggestions on using worm compost tea for hydroponics greatly appreciated

I want to grow basil, strawberries, watercress in this system

Thanks in advance

I didn't have an NFT system, but used worm tea in a vacuum break system. I did use A & B mixes also, as i was growing beans and strawberries. I used 1:10 worm to water as a tonic. I didn't kill anything so it was working.


Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S
