You can grow almost any vegetable from hydroponic seeds. For beginners, hydroponic tomatoes can be grown easily from hydroponic tomato seeds and we do recommend that you start with them. Seeds come in many different varieties and hydroponic tomato seeds are also available in several varieties. It’s a good idea to cultivate the seeds into seedlings inside a greenhouse before shifting them on to hydroponic gardening. Some varieties of tomato seedlings and hydroponic tomato seeds are not very suitable for hydroponic gardening. They get used to soil and during transplantation, when they are transported to a water medium, they do not survive. As a result, we suggest you choose hydroponic tomato seeds that are resistant to pests, sunlight and weather problems.
What Does A Hydroponic Tomato Seeds Kit Contain?
The actual contents of a hydroponic tomato seeds kit will vary according to the supplier. For example, most hydroponic tomato seeds kits will contain starter plugs and cubes, warming seeds kits, thermometers, fluorescent lights, seedling solutions, hydroponic mediums, and nutrient solutions, which encourage and hasten seed growth. Expensive kits will contain grow lights which will hasten the growth process.
Function Of Each Part Of The Hydroponic Tomato Seeds Kit:
1-Starter cubes contain the hydroponic tomato seeds and will grow after you push the seeds into the cubes. These cubes are designed to hold in moisture, nutrient solution and fertilizer close to the hydroponic tomato seeds and to hasten the germinating process. Starter cubes are essential as the seeds may get washed away during the watering process.
2-A large collection of starter cubes with hydroponic tomato seeds is placed in a plant tray with a clear plastic dome over it. The tray has adjustable vents which will control the humidity and temperature inside the plant tray. Ideally, the plant tray will keep the temperature around the hydroponic tomato seeds at about 70-80 degrees and prevent the seedlings from drying out. Please note that most hydroponic tomato seeds will require a lot of heat and humidity to germinate.
3-The hydroponic tomato seeds will start to germinate in a few days and in about 3 weeks, the plant will be ready to be transplanted into a hydroponic growth medium. While the hydroponic tomato seeds are germinating, remember to use diluted nutrient solution to make the seeds grow. Mix the nutrient solution for the hydroponic tomato seeds in a separate tray and then pour it into the seed tray.
4-After the hydroponic tomato seeds start showing a root ball through the cube, you can transplant them to a hydroponic growth medium.
