  • Fertilizer for Hydroponic Strawberries

    Created by Creig Leu on

    I am currently using a water soluble triple ten fertilizer for my hydroponic strawberries. However, the plants that don’t get any nutrients are doing better than the ones that do… Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am looking for a new product line.

    Hello,

    Strawberries are not heavy feeders. It is likely that you are overdoing them with the fertilizer, especially since it is a 10-10-10. Give lighter feedings or switch to a different product like Neptune’s Fish and Seaweed, which has higher amounts of phosphorus and lower amounts of nitrogen and potassium. The General Organics plant nutrient line is also very good for hydroponic growing.

    Best of luck!
