This can get a little technical and, for some, overwhelming. However, hydroponic fertilizer is a make-or-break process that will determine the success of your efforts.

Many products are in the market, and some are better than others.

Also, you have to consider the pH of your water. Plants will not do well if the water is too acidic or alkaline. That rule even holds true for a conventional soil garden. Some products on the market will test your water and additives that will correct that pH balance.

He mentions some “over-the-counter” fertilizers, such as Miracle Grow. I went that route once with poor results.

The following video shows the results the MHP Gardener had in his hydroponic garden:

I want to thank the MHP Gardener for his instructional videos. As you can see from his results, hydroponic vegetables look fantastic when you set up and use the correct fertilizer for any system.

Many useful and educational resources are out there, and this site will help you enjoy the garden of your dreams!
