Welcome, I don't read very much Spanish so I'm using Google translate. Do you have access to the All New Square Foot Gardening book. It is invaluable for success. I garden in a tabletop bed and I love my results. I followed the 1/3 vermiculite, 1/3 blended compost and 1/3 peatmoss recipe very carefully and have an excellent crop of green vegetables growing. However, if you are not able to get peatmoss or vermiculate in your area, then Mel says pure compost will work fine. He recommends making your own.
The people using this forum are very friendly and are always willing to help and answer questions.

Bienvenido, yo no leo mucho español, así que estoy usando Google Translate. ¿Tiene acceso a todos los nuevos datos pies cuadrados de jardinería. Es invaluable para el éxito. Yo jardín en una cama mesa y me encanta mis resultados. He seguido la vermiculita 1 / 3, 1 / 3 de compost mezclado y tercera receta peatmoss con mucho cuidado y tener una excelente cosecha de verduras de color verde cada vez mayor. Sin embargo, si no son capaces de obtener peatmoss o vermiculita en su área, a continuación, Mel dice compuesto puro no tendrán ningún problema. Se recomienda hacer el suyo propio.
La gente que usa este foro es muy amable y siempre dispuesto a ayudar y responder a las preguntas.

Bienviendo! Espero que hayan otros que le puedan ayudar mas que yo. No se que sea este "hidrogel" pero me gustaria aprender mas sobre el asunto, asi que aqui in el sur de Tejas hace mucho calor y hay que darles aqua a los plantes diariamente (o aun mas).
Disculpe mi espanol. No lo ultiliza como debo.

Elli, are you using a translator or do you know how to write in Español?
Oh Babelfish has let me down...

babelfish...
Bienviendo! I hope that there are others can help him but that I. Not
that he is this " hidrogel" gustaria to learn but me but on the
subject, so in the south of Roofing tiles long ago heat and is
necessary here to give aqua them you plant to them daily (or even
more).
It excuses my Spanish. Not ultiliza it as I must.

No, I'm not using a translator. I don't know how to do accent marks and such when typing and that's why Babelfish isn't happy with me Smile Well, that and a couple of typos (aqua instead of agua Embarassed )!

What I mean to say is:

Welcome! I hope that there are others who can help you more than I. I don't know what this "hidrogel" is but I would like to know more about it, since here in southern Texas it's very hot and plants have to be watered daily (or even more often).
Excuse my Spanish. I don't use it as I ought.

I "think" what I wrote is fairly intelligible other than the absence of accent marks...which I really should get around to figuring out, since about a third of my FB page is in Spanish these days. Laughing

El Hidrogel viene en colores? Recuerdo que vendian un producto similar para las plantas dentro de la casa....se veia muy bonito.
Si es es el producto, yo no lo utilizaria para mis frutas/vegetales sin primero investigar los ingredientes....realmente no quieres muchos quimicos cerca de tu comida!

I was asking if the Hidrogel is a product that was sold in the late 80's early 90's...it looked like "swollen" silica gel globules and came in many colors...you would just plant your houseplants in that with no soil and you didn't have to water (at least hardly at all...and I mean HARDLY at all.) If indeed this is the product being referred to, I would not use it for growing my veggies/fruits....who knows what kind of chemicals are in those things...

Bienvenido Daniel! Yo no tengo SFG mesa tampoco pero mucha gente aqui los usan con exito. Si tienes poco espacio, parece que has encontrado una manera perfecta para cultivar tu propia comida. Que tengas buena suerte!

Qué tal Daniel. Yo vivo en Monterrey. Apenas estoy leyendo el libro. ¿Ya lo pusiste en práctica? Tengo dudas acerca de qué verduras sembrar, ya que acá hace un calorón muy fuerte. Me imagino que en Guadalajara tienes un clima más amable y se darán bien las principales verduras. ¿Es así?

Saludos

Yo pieso que no lo debes de usar porque yo use algo similar en 1990 que se llamaba 'Soil Moist.' Los crystales se cambiamba como gelatina cuando en contacto con agua. Todavia tengo la botella y los ingredientes son: (en ingles) Hydroxide Methacrylate, metacrylic acid, acrylamide copolymer, crosslinked acrylic homopolymer.

Que lista tu Hydrogel?

No creo que queiras comer tu verduras que han absorbado estos quimicos.

Perdona mi espanol.
