7. Preparing the greenhouse

Long time since the last update. The seedlings are all growing well. In the meantime I am preparing the autopots and the greenhouse.

Some of the autopots, and two 47 L tanks.
Here are some of the autopots, and two 47 L tanks which are connected together.

I will fill the bottom of the autopots with a layer of 3 cm clay pebbles to help the flow and give air to the roots.

I have read it is important to rinse the pebbles in water in 48 hours to ensure they are PH-stable.

I have also taken one of my tomato plants from the grow closet into the greenhouse to see how it will thrive.
