  • Hi Diane,Thanks for a very informative post.I now realise the mistakes i have been making with my hydroponic experiments.I still have some questions.1.What difference will it make if we use any other nutrient formula say 9-9-9 NPK or any other.2.How does the lettuce perform in open? Do we need to cover and isolate the growing containers/ area with a plastic sheet or net.3.Can we plant the seeds directly in the net pot or should we plant the seedlings.4.If we start with seeds why do we need to keep some empty space in the container. Why not fill it up completely till it touches the bottom of the net pot.5 How can we grow lettuce if the outside ambient temperature is above 40°C.ThanksArun
