There is more and more interest in growing alpine strawberries hydroponically. We have tested a number of systems and continue to test and develop systems. In fact, we started a trial to test different media in Bato Buckets (as of May 2015). You can follow this trial on our Facebook Page. The different media treatments are:
1. Course Perlite
2. Composted Pine Bark
3. Perlite, Coir, Peat
We purchased an NFT system to grow veggies for our household and likely will be conducting some trials with NFT. We are aware of several studies, especially in Italy, using NFT and Fragara vesca. These studies have got us thinking seriously about using this popular system for alpine strawberry production.
Follow our trials on Facebook. We will update this page in the near future.
