How much water do certain Asian plants need?
Hi there. I'm looking at growing Kaffir Lime trees, lemongrass and Thai basil hydroponically. I have heard that, as long as they're left for long enough between watering, these plants grow well hydroponically. I understand that the water levels will depend on each plant, but would you be able to provide me with a rough estimate of how much water each of these plants will require per day/week if grown hydroponically? Many thanks, Daphne Barker

It doesn't seem to be how much water, but keeping the water at a certain temperature and supplying the water with a nutrient base.
