Hydroponic Gardening Simple Gardening

Hydroponic Gardening was derived from the Greek word hydro. Which means “water” and ponic, which means “labor or water-working”. Hydroponic gardening involves growing plants with roots in other fertilizer solutions and without soil.

Hydroponics gardening is as simple as ordinary gardening. Both of them need sufficient light, water, temperature and humidity. But with hydroponic gardening, no soil is used. Instead a soil substitute holds the roots while nutrients are carried by the water. Indoor hydroponic gardening is not that hard and plants respond well to this method of growing.

This is one of the major things to consider in hydroponics gardening because it sustains the plants. You have to make sure that this nutrient solution stays at a pH level of 5 to 6 after diluted. The plants should be watered more than three times a day. This is usually done using a pump and timer. The plants in this picture were started hydoponically. And then moved into pots with soil for sale.

Indoor Hydroponic Gardening

If your hydroponic garden is indoors, the best temperature is between 71 to 76 degrees Fahrenheit. This temperature may change depending on the different types of plant you are working with.

Place your plants somewhere they can receive enough light. Otherwise artificial light must be used. High sodium lights or bulbs are a suitable fix for natural light.

Humidity is good. When the room’s temperature rises, the air will hold the amount of moisture your plants will need.

Hydroponics Gardening Fully Automated

A hydroponic gardening system can be fully automated. Since it is water-based, the gardener has no soil to dig or weeds to pull. Also, the water can be re-used to prevent wastage.

With hydroponics, an excellent yield of quality plants can be achieved. Home hydroponic gardening systems and DIY kits are  available in most hardware stores. Growing hydroponically has its benefits. You can grow a fairly large yield in a very limited amount of space. Which is a big deal when growing indoors. Here is a link to my new Amazon Store  www.amazon.com/shops/A13JAQNPXDNX
