Systems for Watermelons
You don’t have to feel like losing your rind when it comes to growing watermelons. While they can be trickier than tomatoes because they require more water, 1000Bulbs makes it easy.
An ebb-and-flow system works great when you’re growing watermelons, or any melon for that matter. Although it is not as simple as the drip system, the ebb-and-flow system certainly isn’t the most advanced hydroponics solution out there either.
You will need soilless grow medium, tubing, a bedding tray, a reservoir, a fill/drain overflow kit, a water pump, and a timer. These supplies create a flood and drain structure to keep the growing medium moist. You will insert the solution into the bedding tray and let it drain through the pump into the reservoir a couple times per day. The timer makes this process easier.
