Well, now we will provide a more specific review of growing broccoli in pots that can be done even in the lowlands by still relying on hydroponic methods. The hydroponic method is used because this method offers a variety of growing media suitable for planting broccoli sprout seeds in the lowlands.
Broccoli plant only lives in areas with an altitude of 800-1000 m above sea level. But now, along with the development of various kinds of technology, broccoli which should only grow in the highlands can be planted in pots even in the lowlands. By using a hydroponic system and choosing the right planting medium, this is very possible to do.
The hydroponic method was chosen because of the growing media that supports cultivation in a low altitude place, also because this method is very clean so that it can be planted even indoors. Also, allowing it to be planted in a room will be very profitable with a narrow space that can produce a lot of plants when compared to conventional methods because the pots used are easier to arrange the layout. Regarding the results, it is certain that this hydroponic method can produce more vegetables.
