Basil grows really well in hydroponics , it outgrew my soil based basil and kept on growing and growing.

The mother basil plant was grown in soil, was very very healthy and kept blooming then.
I gave it away since I could keep their flowers/seeds to save me some space :hysterical:/>
So now gonna 'resurrect' growing basil but to experience grow hydroponically :D/>

Ooo... Just go ahead and transplant them into your hydroponic solution. At least the water there will not dry up. Make sure the water level can reach the roots of the sprouts.

I went there but need to call them first. Their shop/office is just below the void deck which is hidden from main road but face the car park.

FYI, if you go by MRT, its about 5 minutes walk from Lavender MRT. And since there are stall at Hortpark, they should have there.

Dont drown the little plant, it is a baby so use TLC Tender loving care.

I see in Singapore that most people start their seedlings in foam, and this is okay and a well used principle, however I start all my seedlings in a soil seedling mix and when at the two leaf stage , wash all soil off the roots and then plant into the Leica.

As they say it is neither right or wrong to start seedlings either way, and it is a preference only for those who want to start their seeds growing.
I usually plant about a dozen seeds at a time and pick the strongest from this batch.
