There are many different kinds of Hydroponics Kits out on the market today. You can buy many simple kits from mass marketing outlets, nurseries and even online. These are for really anyone who wants to try a stab at Hydroponics in general, mostly because they are inexpensive, disposable, and have everything that is needed to get started right away.
However, if you are a serious grower, these simple Hydroponics Kits just won’t do. A serious grower will be considering growing at least ten to twenty plants at a time. In many cases, these people have to make homemade Hydroponics systems instead, starting from scratch or from plans. There are some good large scale kits available, one of them is the Volksgarden:
The Volksgarden hydroponics kit is a rotating wheel within which some 80 hydroponics plants can be planted. Turning one full circle every hour, the plants can get watered every hour, or the hydroponic nutrient pump can be timed to reduce this rate of watering.
This experiment is following the growth of different varieties of lettuce, some cherry tomatoes, and some mini peppers.
The rapid and robust growth of all plants in this system is visibly amazing. The lettuce was ready to harvest within 21-28 days, compared to the suggested 60 days on the seed packet. The cherry tomatoes began to flower within 35 days.
If you are serious about growing your own food, or are growing medical marijuana, these are the Hydroponics Kits to look into. The only real drawback that can be seen is that height of the plant may be an issue. However, for smaller herbs, vegetables and even starters, this kit really takes the guess work out of growing, and realistically doesn’t take up that much space.
