So many people today are finding that this is true. Like me, they have found that the hydroponics way of growing is the cleanest, best, and most controlled way to grow your fruits and vegetables.
From the fresh sparkling taste of the salad greens you have just picked to be eaten that same day to the beauty, size and vibrant colors of your flowers' blooms many people think that it all can be grown better the hydroponics way.
HYDROPONICS! WHAT IS IT ANYWAY?
Growing with hydroponic gardening systems is just a method of growing without soil by using instead a clean soil substitute such as peat, clay pebbles, gravel, rock wool, water, or coco grow to mention a few..
In the method of soil gardening the plants' roots dig and search into the soil for their needed nutrients.
With hydroponic gardening systems the exact nutrients designed to each plant's requirements are supplied and controlled in an automatically scheduled feeding.
It follows that as the plant doesn't have to work as hard for
their nutrients the results are that more energy is being supplied to produce lush blooms for flowers and healthier more lush and abundant vegetable crops.
WHY NOT SOIL GARDENING?
Do soil gardeners really know where their soil has been? Soil has been around since the beginning of time and has been subjected to a variety of chemicals and contaminants: all manner of things that you don't want to think about nor do you want your food growing in. And the best of it can become the worst of it if the soil has been purified with chlorine..
When growing with hydroponics systems those worries about what may or not may be in the growing environment of your fruits and vegetables that you are raising for and serving to your family will vanish. There will be no chemical residues or poisons to concern you while eating the food that you grow. The only thing that gets into your hydroponically grown food is what you put into it.
A small easy to use complete hydroponics system for home use is easy to obtain and quite affordable too. Easy and fun to set up, most systems arrive complete with all that you need to get started together with all of the how-to and guidelines for success.
Many of the products have videos to show set up and use. There are even videos on YouTube that educate one on nutrients supply.
Quality manufacturers here in the United States are standing by ready to help in any way they can with technical support, advice or parts replacement if needed.
A hydroponic gardening system can be good for a child's or family project. How about a science project for your favorite child or classroom? A new hobby for yourself or someone you know.
Some of the Aeroflo series are long and narrow and fit easily along side a window for the natural sunlight.
There are hydroponic systems which are used for growing the larger vegetable varieties or berries or maybe a lemon or avocado tree. There are some versatile systems which can be used for plant cultivation as well as plant cloning.
Whatever you may want to grow the hydroponics people have you covered. Whatever your desires or goals there are systems to go along with them. NOW YOU HAVE IT - WHERE WILL YOU PUT IT?
Some people think closet or indoor tent growing works best for them. It's relatively easy to control lighting and climate in a small enclosed area. No drafts, etc.
Some prefer their gardens out in the open to watch and enjoy maybe as a focal point as you would place or use a pretty house plant. On the top of an end table or corner table or dining room table when not in use..
Some people have a complete vegetable garden set up inside their garage or cellar. There are small indoor greenhouses available and affordable that work well in a spare room, cellar or garage environment where climate: temperature, humidity and light can be controlled.
Outdoor growing, of course, depends entirely upon sunlight. Indoors the best way to simulate sunlite is a Hydrofarm light mover which moves back and forth over your plants. There are T5 Fluorescent lights that have the full spectrum of daylight. Perhaps you might chose one of a variety of T5 hydroponic lighting. One choice can be the Jump Start Lighting System which come in two convenient sizes: 2 Ft and 4 Ft, and is entirely portable with T5 fluorescent light bulbs that can simulate the sun. There is a video for the set up of this light right on the product page or on the manufacturers website and also YouTube.Com. Perhaps your best choice will be an efficient Hydrofarm Light Mover proven for its ability to simulate the sun

You can always grow them from seeds as usual. There is help out there for that also. A little Jump Start pellet greenhouse is a great way to get your seedlings started. There are germination kits available complete with humidity dome, thermostat and heat mat. These go a long way to ensure success by making the ideal environment for your seedlings to speed them along. Or if you don't want to bother with planting seeds maybe want to jump right into rooting from plant cuttings that you can obtain directly from cuttings of your someone's thriving plants.
There is help out there also for that. The propagation or plant cloningmachines, or aeroponic systems are available and affordable with lots of instructions and how-tos to get you started in the right direction. There are special liquid plant fertilizers designed for successful cloning and rooting. They are efficient and easy to use. You just place your cuttings in the small holes provided in your system and underneath the covered area there are scheduled automatic spraying of the cuttings with either a plant nutrient solution or oxygenated water such as the method used in the OxyClone System. Either way they are no bother to you and an easy success.
