Hello everyone. Had a question about something.
I work for a college, and we have an agriculture program. They have this big fancy greenhouse and grow lots of stuff in there by a method other than using soil. I don't think it's hydroponics but something similar? I guess I should listen better when they tell me about it. But the truth is I'm kind of turned off by it because they've yet to grow any tomatoes or cucumbers that taste better than mine in my garden!
That being said, their plants appear very healthy and strong.... Huge. They have talked to me about growing my daylily seeds for me to put out in the spring in my garden. As long as they didn't kill them or get them mixed up I think I might be willing to give it a try. They are well equipped and Stanley (the guy who takes care of the greenhouse) is extremely into the greenhouse. I don't even know if he gets paid but he's always there.
My question is, has anyone tried anything like this before and what are the opinions on whether or not this would probably be a huge jump on the growth rate compared to me potting them and putting them in my basement under some grow lights?
