Just about any fruit can be grown using hydroponics but some fruits perform better than some others in hydroponic conditions. Fruits that need very acidic soil conditions grow better in hydroponic systems since it is much easier to control the nutrient content and pH levels there. Also fruits that thrive well in wet conditions do very well in a hydroponic environment.
A grow tent is an enclosed environment used for growing hydroponics. It is transportable and can be easily reused over and over again. The interior of a grow tent has a reflective property that enables it to conserve light with a heavy-duty exterior that is waterproof. In this post I will explain grow tents in more detail.
Before you can make money with hydro farming, you need understand if you want to run a commercial or subsistence farm. Also, do you want to run your farm indoors or outdoors? Answering these questions will largely define your next moves as you set up your hydroponics farm.
For indoor hydroponics, the choice of plant lighting is very important and can have a massive impact on your plants health and yield. In this post, I go in-depth on how to choose an adequate grow light for hydroponics and what you need to watch out for when choosing your lighting solution.
Aeroponics is simply growing your plants in an environment where their roots are sprayed with a nutrient mix using nuzzles on pipes instead of submerging the roots in a solution of the nutrient mix. The roots are suspended freely in the roots zone.
Vertical farming is no rocket science. It simply involves growing by stacking planes of crops over each other. It minimizes space requirement when you need to plant numerous crops. Vertical farming is mostly practiced indoors because it facilitates plant growth all year round.
