Indoor Gardens With Hydroponic Systems
By Jason Uvios
Traditional gardening is now a passť. Hydroponic gardens are in. And you can have wonderful and exotic indoor garden equipped and maintained by hydroponic systems. Neither will your home get dirtied with mud and soil, nor are there hassles of turning the soils from time to time. Moreover the step-by-step process to raise a plant can be avoided. And believe me, you can have it exactly inside your home.

Feel the delicious bite of cheese salad with fresh green lettuce and other vegetables and watch them even fresher in your hydroponic garden beside your dining hall. Your appetite is further enhanced, so does your energy level and spirit.

The whole setup

As there is no soil, half of the hazards are instantly solved. The garden is well grafted in a large container that can be a tank or a reservoir or a big-sized tray base. The nutrient solution can be directly placed in the container and seedlings and saplings can be grown. For better support, sand and gravel can be used.

If you want to completely wipe out any type of soil like base you can arrange for coir or coconut fibers and use them as base or support for the plantís growth. They are great absorbents of water like substance and they can in turn allow the roots to take their share and help out in the plants growth.

The basic nutrients

Whenever it is soil where the plants grow, the roots actually derive the organic matter and the essential nutrients from the soil through the process of biological decay. If they are found insufficient,


then additional fertilizers are added. Well the need of the plants in hydroponics gardening does not change. They too require the same nutrients as when grown in the soil.

The basic nutrients, thus, mixed with water to prepare the nutrient solution are actually the basic elements of fertilizer. N, P, K or to say, nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium along with a few other necessary minerals in lesser amounts are added in water to prepare the solution. This mineral based solution forms the basis of the plantís growth in turn.

Easy accessibility

As hydroponic gardens are gaining more popularity and very much in trend, each one of us is looking forward to have our very personal indoor garden. Thus readymade hydroponic kits are available with every arrangement required. Only you will have to set up the things in the right order in your desired location at your home.

You can even have more than one hydroponic indoor garden. At one corner it can be lilies and beautiful flowers and at the other enjoy your dining with fresh tomatoes, spinach and other green vegetables.
