Using Hydroponics To Grow African Violets

This article will discuss how hydroponics farming technology could

be used to farm African Violets indoors or commercially within an acceptable budget. Hydroponic farming is a system that uses soil-less

medium to produce most of the produce and fruits available in super

markets today, around the World. It uses soil only as a support mechanism. On it’s natural environment, African violet will thrive

by using it’s roots to secure food. It will expand the root network as

necessary, in order to feed itself. But with hydroponics, the grower would assume that responsibility.

Once the entire farming mechanism

is set up, all that would be required on the part of the farmer is a commitment to tend to the plant indoors. If that is done the farmer can expect a higher than appropriate return in investment. This will work because there is abundant evidence that it does work. Individuals and corporations are using hydroponics to reel in amazing amount of dividend. It is cheaper to use hydroponics production system because it is more effective, it is cleaner and it does not

entail a lot of repetitive chores, such as weed watching and insect monitoring. On the natural environment, African violet will require adequate lighting to grow and to glow. That lighting requirement

would be met adequately by a well set up hydroponic system.

The use of a proper HID or high intensity charging flourescent light indoors will satisfy the light requirement. For temperature this flower needs 60 to 80 degrees temperature to achieve optimal potential.

For that, the farmer would have to adjust the indoor temperature accordingly. For feeding the plant would be adequately fed via the hydroponics system, the plant would not need to waste time and energy in developing extensive root network, because this mechanism will provide all needed nutrients from a nutrition system that had already been formulated. There would be no need for a separate fertilization system, because all of that is incorporated in the hydroponics technology.

The African violet will bloom with lush, because the possibility of insect attack would be highly minimized.

Therefore on the whole the farmer stands to gain significantly. Given

that the product would be given all the necessary ingredients needed to blossom, it would be protected from all pesticide, the only

option for the plant would be to grow and thrive. The African violet

would be happy it will be sweet to the eye, and the farmer will be rewarded financially and emotionally for a job well done. African

violets is one of those flowers regarded as a high value product,

so the potential for high reward for the farmer is quite good.
