I am growing some hydroponic peppers from seeds I purchased from the Chili Pepper Institute.
I just wanted to run a quick question by you guys- Can I grow peppers to maturity using the 'Big Foot' tray pictured below? I know peppers have a lot of side roots, and that this tray may inhibit these roots. under the tray I have hydroton. I also have net pots, and I was thinking I would transfer these sprouts to net pots if necessary. I would simply lift this tray off, fill all the net pots with the hydroton, and carefully place the coco coir plugs in the pots. If this is necessary, I'd like to do it before the roots get too big.
Some other details:
flood and drain system, 45 gal reservoir, 6.0 Ph, 600 ppm (for now, weak fertilizer).
