Hydroponic Onion Seed

Hydroponic Onions Trial 1

Here’s a progressive report of my Hydroponic Onions.

Since I’m confident that I could grow seeds from a foam/sponge, I got my onion seeds started on small sponge cubes.

Since I noticed that the sponge cubes I made before was too large, I made smaller again. This time around 1 cm cubes.

Placed one seed per sponge cube.

Then placed them on a ice cream container, poured water and settled them in a cool dry place away from the rain.

Some seeds started to sprout. I checked other seeds but the others were still not sprouted yet. Patience! Patience! Patience!

Still I’m happy at least I now know this can be done. ^_^

This blog post will be updated regularly to document the progress of my Hydroponic Onions.
