• System: Ebb & Flow
  • Notes: Seeds were placed in Rockwool, germinated but then showed little progress, ultimately suffering rot after approximately three weeks

Basil is one of those plants that's so cheap, readily available, and easy to grow without hydroponics, that you might as well go buy those plants at the grocery store and pot them nicely on a window sill.

To prevent rot, try sprouting the seeds on a paper towel, then transferring to Oasis or SureToGrow cubes, and increase light exposure. Don't water with nutrient solution until 5 or so days after they've sprouted. You may also try just poking a dozen 2mm deep holes in the top of an Oasis cube and dropping a seed into each. Keep the cube damp, but not saturated.
