New Growing Challenge

Some of our students have been exploring the technique of growing plants in water. They have put many hours into researching the different set ups, the nutrients and the balance needed for different plants, and how successful different crops are. They have become very knowledgeable about the ebb and flow and the kratky hydroponics systems and are keeping records and graphs of their results. They are currently experimenting with how to support the fast growing tomato plants. We would be thrilled to have parents look at our work and maybe offer advice and support.
