New to Hydroponics or Aquaponics ? Which to use & why
5 Most popular hydroponic growing systems for beginners
Below are ranked our most popular hydroponic growing systems :
1. DIY Hydroponics plan
OK, it’s not a kit but if you are completely new to hydroponics this is a great way to start.
Available from Amazon it will show you 12 different ways to start hydroponic growing systems at home.
In addition it will show you the best plants to grow, and which to avoid.
As well as detailed advice on nutrients, temperature, etc.
2. Kitchen hydroponic kit
We like the kitchen hydroponic kit a lot. It’s small enough to fit in a kitchen but will still help you grow up to 6 plants at a time.
Available from Amazon it’s the ideal automated hydroponic kit for beginners – as it will show you how it works and also helps you get great results.
In addition the special grow lights mean you can grow your herbs & vegetables all year around.
3. Starter Hydroponic Kit
The starter hydroponic kit (shown right) is great for learning how hydroponics works.
Available from Amazon it will let you grow 3 plants (your favourite specialist herbs?) and show you why hydroponics will help you get better results than growing them in soil.
A key advantage of the unit is the automated reminder of when to add water & nutrients.
And in addition the lights will also automatically switch on and off.
4. The 4 pot hydroponic system
The 4 pot hydroponic system is great for growing tomatoes & peppers indoors.
As opposed to the other hydroponic growing systems for beginners this one will let you grow taller plants.
Available from Amazon it’s compact enough to fit just about anywhere, and is very easy to install and use.
However, please do note that you will also need to buy a specialist grow light (if you want to grow tomatoes and peppers in darker months)
5. Balcony hydroponic system
If I had the space (A balcony, terrace, etc) then this is the one I would buy.
Available from Amazon it is one of the best larger hydroponic kits for beginners with a completely automated drain & return system.
The advantage is that it will let you grow larger quantities of tomatoes and peppers indoors – with the benefits of using the faster growing hydroponic system.
However, please note that (like the 4 pot system) you will also need to use grow lamps for best results.
