Q.hydroponics staking

Anonymous added on December 21, 2014 | Answered

I am setting up an indoor hydroponic system and was wondering how am I going to stake a basil plant or cilantro plant in Styrofoam? What would be the best way? My Styrofoam is 2 inches thick and I will be using 1.5 sq. rockwool, so how big will the plant get and how to hold it?

There are several ways to stake plants in a hydroponic system: most of them involve suspending a stake, twine, or screen from an overhead support. Others involve simply a stake or stakes taped to the outside of your container. You can do more research by googling "staking in hydroponics system." I can't tell you how big your plants will get because it depends so much on all your growing conditions, as well as the variety of plants you're using.
