Basics

Process

Hydroponics is a technique of growing plants in water rather than in soil or is known as soilless culture.

Basics Of Hydroponics

Sowing of seeds

Seeds are put into the pre-cut sponge.
They must be visibly on the sponge.
Soak the sponge with water for 7 - 8 hours.



Germination Room

Requirements: Air, water and warmth.
This process usually takes up to 2 - 3 days.
The seedlings are then transferred to the
nuresery greenhouse for further cultivation.
Put one seed into one sponge except for
Kang Kong (two seeds).
The seed must be embedded in the sponge but
yet still visible from the top.



Nursery Greenhouse

Seedlings are raised in the nursery house for 7 to 10 days.
They are feed with 1/2 standard nutrient.
They will be ready to be transplanted into the greenhouse when the true-leaves appear.



Transplanting

The seedlings are transplanted into the culture
panel holes with forceps.
The sponge must be in contact with the water to
provide enough moisture to promote root growth.



Growing

The seedlings are allowed to grow in the greenhouse until it is ready to harvest.
Nettings are used to protect the plants from pests or insects, therefore no pesticides are used.



Harvesting

The roots and the yellow leaves are removed.
The sponges are kept to prolong the shelf-life
of the vegetables.
The harvest is weighed and pack into plastic bags.



Packing

Ready pack fresh vegetables are send to supermarket daily.
