Solution recipe for radishes
 
Hey GPS, do you or anyone have a recipe for radish nutes?
I see after the leave develop I should switch to more phosphorous, for root development rather then great tops. I'm currently using the Floa series, and I see that The Floabloom, has the most phosphorous.0-5-4.
Can I use just that, or go heavy on that and light on the other two, or is there something specific I should get? Having little or no luck searching the web. Thank you.

Hello newhydro16,
I grew my radishes with the verti gro nutrients. You can adjust the flora series nutrients as needed. If you want to go heavier on the bloom you can try mixing them like

5 ml Gro
10 ml Micro
15 ml Bloom

That's a typical ratio for flowering/fruiting plants.

P.S.
Don't let the radish bulbs get to big, they get tough and woody the bigger they get.

Recipie for radishes
 
The radishes didn't do so hot, I had them in clay balls. They did better when I bumped up the phosphorous, but how can I start a new batch in perlite?
Do I germinate the seeds first, them put them in the pots with just perlite?
I'm thinking the clay balls might be impeding the growth. Thank you all.

Also, I found were folks were using composted rice hulls. Cheaper then perlite. Can they work, be reused?
