  • Description

 

This is our seedling system. We initally made these for our commercial customers.  We now make them available to our domestic-use clients as well.

System consists of: 
 

45 net pots (mini slotted pots)
45-hole plastic net pot holder
Water-holding tray
Vermiculite growing medium - both Fine and Coarse
Tag sticks
Sample seeds

Method:
3/4 fill the net pots with coarse vermiculite
Place one seed into each pot  (This kit is very economical on seeds)
Cover the seeds with fine vermiculite
Fill the plastic tray with water (Use water from the fish tank, or make up a solution of Seasol or similar seaweed extract)
Use the wooden sticks to tag and date the rows of seeded pots

The water is wicked up into the net pots and keeps the net pot contents moist for the duration of seedling production, thus avoiding the need to water from above; watering from above often dislodges or sinks the seed too far down into the seed-raising mixture, resulting in poor germination.

Trays can be lined up on a flat level bench for the period it takes for the seedlings to be ready to go out into the aquaponics system or regular garden.

Hello i am just wondering what seeds come with the seed raising kit? and if you sell good seeds are they organic? I know it says it is then aded to DWC but can you remove them and wash the vermiculite and then add to the flood and drain systems? cheers

Yes, you can easily wash off the vermiculite and plant into a media bed. And yes, the seeds are either original varieties or organic. Regards Murray
