Abstract Vegetables suitable for indoor soilless planting include: Chinese cabbage, small rapeseed, water spinach, lettuce, celery, coriander, etc. You can use plastic boxes that are not used as planting pots, and then wash the terracotta and perlite and spread the seeds. It needs to be soaked in warm water at about 32°C for about 6 hours, and then dig a cave for sowing.
After emergence, the diluted nutrient solution should be poured every day, and the seedlings should be thinned and watered appropriately in the later period.

Vegetables suitable for indoor soilless planting
Fruits and vegetables suitable for indoor soilless planting are: strawberries, tomatoes, cucumbers, bitter gourds, cherries, radishes, etc. Leafy vegetables include: Chinese cabbage, small rape, water spinach, lettuce, celery, coriander and so on. The maturity cycle of these vegetables is different. Fruits and vegetables are between 3-5 months, and leafy vegetables are between 2-3 months.
The temperature requirements of fruits and vegetables are around 10-25℃, and they need to be available throughout the day. With sufficient sunlight, the demand for leafy vegetables is relatively low, so they are suitable for indoor planting in families.
Prepare planting pots
Unused plastic flower pots and foam boxes can be used as planting pots, but they need to have holes and trays at the bottom. Be careful not to use earthenware pots; add 1 jin of pottery and 1.5 kilograms of perlite in general building materials stores Both can be purchased, or peat, vermiculite, rock wool can also be used; and the concentrated nutrient solution is divided into two types, No. 1 and No. 2, which need to be diluted before use.
Choose high-quality and good seeds, soak the seeds in warm water at 32°C for about 6 hours, then soak the terracotta and perlite in clean water for later use, then fill the soaked substrate in a plastic cup, and dig holes for fruit. Vegetables are planted with 2 seeds per hole.
The leafy vegetables are sowed along the small ditch by digging a trench, covering it with a substrate and then gently pressing it, then covering it with a film and waiting for the seedling to emerge. Choosing the right indoor plant grow lights can shorten your harvesting cycle
After the seedlings emerge, the diluted nutrient solution should be poured 1-2 times a day. It is advisable to pour it until there is exuded liquid in the tray. When the seedlings grow 2 leaves, the seedlings should be thinned. On average, only one seedling should be left in each hole. Yes, the excess seedlings can be pulled out.
When the seedlings grow to about 4 true leaves in the later stage, the seedlings should be replaced. Generally, a layer of soaked ceramics is sprinkled on the bottom of the basin to facilitate drainage, and then some perlite is sprinkled, and then the seedlings are transplanted together with the substrate. In the big basin, sprinkle a layer of terracotta on the perlite.
After transplanting, the seedlings should be watered. The first time they should be completely watered, it is advisable to use the planting tray to seep water. The leafy vegetables should be watered once every 2 days, and water should be watered 2 times a day. 2 times a day.
