Wow! Your fruit trees make me green with envy :drool:/>/>/>/>
I have eaten those figs that look like rotten onion and they are yum....
Do update us when you harvest ^_^/>/>/>/>


I used to buy figs from grocery marts. They are expensive, and does not taste as sweet, because figs don't ship well. Hence I wanted to grow my own and eat naturally ripened ones. And figs grow so well in our climate.

After chopping my mulberry aggressively for some stir fry mulberry leaves and changing their nutrient to a high phosphorus and potassium solution, they start fruiting.

Did not know the leaves can be eaten..haha.
The roots looked like all submerged...won't the plant drown?
I am rooting a mulberry stem cutting and eager to try the hydroponics way. Thanks and regards

Young mulberry leaves are good for stir fry. I stir fry with eggs, taste better than sweet potato leaves. And very nutritious. Yeah, easy to grow mulberry hydroponically.

Is it ok for the roots to be submerged in the water all the time?
Are there roots also in the pot?
Please pardon my silly questions.
Thanks.

Ps. I read your hydroponics posts that only the root ends are submerged so they would not drown.

For kratsky hydroponics, some of the roots have grown into the nutrient solution and became very vigorous overtime because they have access to 24/7 buffet of water and food.

As long as there is an air pocket for some of the roots, and the nutrient solution is not too strong and of the correct PH, the roots will not rot.

There are also roots in the pot. They are kept moist by a wick.
