    Tell me about float tray systems

    Thanks Larry, I'll probably buy one of the float trays that come in the range of 50 -100.
    What kind of meter do you use to test for fertilizer needs?

    Randy

    The meter I use is " Hanna Dist WP 4 Waterproof Conductivity TDS Meter BNIB"

    Type this in Ebay you will see one .

    How to use this meter for tobacco and tomatoes . Fill a glass with your tap water . Take that measurement then add .7 to that . Most tap water is .2 and when you add .7 to that it should be .9 after adding fertilizer .

    I should have put you a sample of the soil with the plants . I just now thought of that .

    Tell me about float tray systems

    Anyone use these? The problem I'm having is trying to find a "tray" for the float tray to set in and float. I'll probably end up (tonight) making a wooden box and seal it with beeswax/paraffin to make it water tight. Any ideas for a container? I have 3- 72 cell trays.

    Bob, I was at Wal-Mart this morning with my tape measure in hand. I could not find any plastic shallow container that was at least 13 1/2 inches x 26 inches. Some were 13 1/2 wide but not long enough while others were 26 inches long but not wide enough. I thought about buying taller, bigger tubs and cutting them down but if I do that I might as well just build some wooden ones.
