Journal August 18, 2013

The roots on the basil in the aeroponic cloner, mentioned a few posts back, are long enough to reach the nutrients in the reservoir, so now it will really take off.

Most likely I will dedicate one of the aeroponic units to basil, using a small CFL light to grow it.  My wife really loves fresh basil,  yesterday she bought seeds for Lemon Mrs. Burns and Purple Petra basil, so I guess she expects me to continue to grow it.

For this crop the EC is 1.5 with the pH at 6.1, which is working out nicely, so I guess I will stick with that.
