What can you grow in hydroponics ?
Fragraria ananassa – Noucetta Kehdi – GHE
“Fragraria x ananassa” is the common strawberry, also called “garden strawberry”. It comes from the Rosaceae family, a very wide family of plants, which includes, on the edible crop side, apples, pears, quince, almonds, apricots, plums, and cherry among many others (see wikipedia.com).
Over the years we grew our strawberries with organic and mineral nutrients, in all our systems, including the TriSystem. We always got the best results and spread our harvests to friends and fellow workers at GHE.

Yohan’s strawberries are sold today to the next doors bakery, where they make excellent strawberry pies for the neighborhood. Both our projects, Yohan’s and ours, hydroponic and bioponic, are a success. Each week since end of April, we have been harvesting 1,5 kg from our large DPS Hydro system, and about 800 g from our AeroFlo 20 !
And we know we can do much better, if only the weather this year could be a little sunnier and warmer !
