    When strawberries are grown hydroponically they can grow up to 2x as fast as they are getting the nutrients, sunlight and water they need at all times. Plus there isn’t the weeding too.

    Manual labour to grow these strawberries can be reduced by as much as 40% compared to using soil as your medium.

    I have strawberries growing indoors in hydroponic growing medium, chunk coco-fiber. The problem is tiny flying gnat-like bugs have also moved in. I’ve tried setting tiny bowls of vinegar/lemon juice/water/dish soap mixture and at first it caught quite a few. I don’t know if I mixed the wrong amount of replacement ingredients, but the bugs are everywhere and no longer drowning in the bowls. I’ve tried using white vinegar in one bowl and cider vinegar in the other, since I was guess. Maybe if I knew the necessary amount of ingredients it would help. Or maybe there is something all together different that would work better. The Gnats are getting out of hand. Anyway, can you help?
