Tips For Hydroponic System Success
With that thought in mind, you might be glad you found this site. We will help guide you through the learning curve that is required so you do not waste time and money which can lead you a disinterest because of failure of hydroponic gardening.
We will show you how not to fail in hydroponic gardening.
You will not fail at this if you take the time to read and understand the “basics”, and have easy access to the equipment and supplies needed for hydroponic system success. It is not such a complex system as some would have you believe, nor is is easy as some others would suggest by just drilling some holes in the top of “tupperware” and plant you lettuce in the air infused water. There is a little more to it than that.
Here are some basic ideas to mull over:
Before you do anything, have a plan. Get educated. We have very good programs available on this site. Then, and this is important, get a notebook. Write down what you are doing so if you do make a mistake, you will not repeat it. There will be success and failure. Part of the learning curve.
Decide where you are going to place your garden. Inside or outside? If outside, make sure it will get enough sunlight. If indoors make sure you have the right artificial light. You will need to position the right large spectrum-high intensity lighting over your hydroponic garden for success. Understand that indoor hydroponic gardening will be more costly to get started in. If your just a beginner, we suggest starting a garden outside so you can focus more on getting the other things right first.
Water quality is most important. Your water will determine your success or failure. Proper feeding of the plants is very important and the proper nutrients added to the water is a must. Water can also cause bacteria problems and will have to be dealt with quickly. Keep an eye out for yellowing and or wilting of leaves and make adjustments.
Keep in mind where your garden is. Inside or out, it is subjected to the particular space it is in. The garden outside has a different ‘micro-climate’ than one that might be inside the house. That will mean different water qualities that will determine pH values, fertilizer concentrations, temperatures, etc. Take notes! These conditions can change fast. Always be checking for the success of your hydroponic system.
This one post gives you a few tips for beginners that will get you on the proper track for hydroponic system success.
