Oregano is a herb, an herbs grow GREAT in hydroponic systems. All though it does take a little longer to start to profit from the herbs, but it is so worth the wait. The first harvest is about 8 weeks after its planted.
Once you have your seed growing, its okay to transfer it to your system. A good amount of light is 18 hours a day of light. Be sure not to over water your Oregano, it will get root rot and die.
You will be able to harvest your leafs once they reach about 4-6 inches of height.
The same goes for Aeroponics as Hydroponics. Follow along with hydroponic section and you’ll be good to go!
When growing indoors, it is super important that your plant receives sunlight and heat in order to grow. Be careful not to over water your plant as it will drown. When planting, I recommend planting them about 8-12 inches apart from the other plants.
While growing Oregano, you will have to prune it every now and then. Try not to over prune your plant, which will stress your plant out and cause it to have yellow spots.
Suffers from Thrips, aphids, and whiteflies. You can avoid these by cleaning all the water that is every where
Some of the things you have to keep in mind when planting herbs like this one, it was start to grow yellow spots. This simply means the plant is stressed, or you are over watering it. If you think the plant may be stressed, it may just need a bigger pot to be kept in. Be careful when moving it, therefor you could destroy the plant. And we do not want that.
