    VFT Hydroponically?

    I have bought several VFT that are currently potted in soil. I'd like to transport them into a hydroponic system. I will be using distilled water in the hydroponic system with no additives or nutrients. Also the VFT will be grown inside my house with artifical light. Is there a step by step process of uprooting? Has this been done before?

    thanks and hello to everybody--jay

    actually.......how we grow most cp's is about a half step away from being hydroponics....

    on uprooting them.....personally i would just do it.....using a bucket of water and a few dunks to get rid of the soil around the roots........but im not known for babying my plants much......

    VFT's under artificial.....can be done.......i am doing it.....better be real good light.......

    Are there any pointers for the uprooting process? Also I've been told that if I am going to do it hydroponically I must have distilled water with no added nutrients?

    no need to baby vft's their usually pretty hardy, they have dark roots however so it can be hard to spot their roots and if their really small plants its easy to snap their roots... thats why you dunk in the water like rattler suggested its a more gentle approach to getting rid of the soil.

    you'd be the 1st I've heard of ever growing vft's with a hydro setup.

    you should post pics, its interesting.
    oh and rattler is right again too your lights need to be intense to grow em happily

    You've been told correctly. Now if you can please educate us all on growing VFTs hydroponically once you get it set up I'd love to hear
