Hydroponic Forcing Tray

ADVANTAGES

  • 3-5 days faster than soil culture
  • much less cooler volume is required for chilling bulbs (because most of the cold period is given to densely packed, unplanted tulips in their shipping crates)
  • harvesting is easier and cleaner — there is no wasted soil at the end, greatly reducing material handling problems.
  • Grow bulbs in a space saving tray! Up to 15 amaryllis or 60 tulip bulbs in one place. No soil required- just water.

THINGS TO CONSIDER
-Hydro stems tend to be 1-2inches shorter and 6-8 percent lighter compared to soil grown

- not all bulbs are suited to this system;
- very high-quality and disease-free bulbs are required, especially for later plantings (careful attention must be placed on proper bulb storage, including temperature, humidity and ventilation);
- a level bench or tray support system is critical to maintain a level nutrient
- the need for exceptional cleanliness. The trays and components are sometimes difficult to wash and sanitize

Please note:  Trays have been used, but have been throughly disinfected prior to shipping.
