Transplanting ‘Iceberg SV7735LD’ lettuce, a specific variety of Iceberg lettuce, in South Africa using soil-based, hydroponic, and aquaponic methods within a greenhouse environment involves adapting to the specific needs of this variety. Here’s a guide for each method, tailored for the Iceberg lettuce variety:

1. Soil-Based Transplanting in Greenhouses


  • Prepare beds or containers with well-drained, fertile soil, enriched with organic compost.
  • Space the seedlings about 20-30 cm apart.
  • Water immediately after transplanting to establish the plants.

Greenhouse Management

  • Maintain a cool and stable environment, as Iceberg lettuce prefers cooler temperatures.
  • Use shading to protect the plants from strong direct sunlight.

Pest and Disease Control

  • Implement organic pest control methods and practice crop rotation to prevent soil-borne diseases.

2. Hydroponic Transplanting in Greenhouses

System Setup

  • Set up a hydroponic system such as NFT (Nutrient Film Technique), DWC (Deep Water Culture), or Ebb and Flow.
  • Ensure proper nutrient solution circulation and aeration.


  • Move seedlings from starter cubes to the hydroponic system.
  • Regularly check root health and adjust their position for optimal growth.

Nutrient and pH Management

  • Use a balanced hydroponic nutrient solution, maintaining pH between 5.5 and 6.5.
  • Consistently test and adjust nutrient concentration and pH levels.

Environmental Control

  • Control temperature and humidity within the greenhouse.
  • Provide supplemental lighting if natural sunlight is inadequate.

3. Aquaponic Transplanting in Greenhouses

System Setup

  • Establish an aquaponic system combining fish culture with plant production.
  • Balance the ecosystem for the needs of both the fish and the plants.


  • Start seedlings in a medium compatible with aquaponics.
  • Transplant into the aquaponic grow beds, ensuring good water flow from the fish tank.

Nutrient Balance

  • The waste from fish provides nutrients for the plants. Monitor and adjust as necessary.
  • Maintain water quality for both fish and plant health.

Temperature and Light Management

  • Control the greenhouse temperature for the health of both fish and plants.
  • Use artificial lighting to supplement natural sunlight when necessary.

General Considerations for Greenhouse Growing

  1. Local Climate Adaptation: Tailor the growing approach to suit South Africa’s diverse regional climates.
  2. Water Efficiency: Implement water-saving practices, especially in regions with limited water availability.
  3. Pest and Disease Management: Use appropriate control strategies for each cultivation method.
  4. Regular Monitoring: Continuously adjust and monitor conditions within the greenhouse for optimal plant growth.

By adapting these methods to local conditions in South Africa, you can effectively cultivate ‘Iceberg SV7735LD’ lettuce in a controlled greenhouse environment. Adjustments may be necessary based on local climate and environmental factors.
