Hydroponic gardening is a great way to get started growing vegetables. Compared to a traditional vegetable garden, a hydroponic system allows you to grow with less mess and to do it easily indoors. Taking that hydroponic garden into the vertical realm has the added benefit of growing in limited spaces, like kitchens, apartments, and balconies. Growing your own food is fun, easy, and healthy.

Anyone Can Grow Vegetables

Vegetable gardening can be a complicated activity, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s possible for anyone, even those with no experience in gardening, to easily grow tasty, organic veggies right at home. You don’t need experience, a lot of time, or much space if you use the right hydroponic

vertical garden. With the right system, growing veggies is truly fun for everyone, including families and kids.

What is Hydroponic Growing?

You truly need no background knowledge to begin growing vegetables. A quick introduction to hydroponics will get you started. Hydroponics is a plant-growing method that uses water mixed with nutrients instead of soil. Plants pick up minerals and other nutrients from the soil, but if you place the roots of plants into nutrient-rich water, they can grow just as well.

There are some important advantages to growing without soil:

  • It’s less messy.
  • Growth rates are faster.
  • The yield is better.
  • It uses less water.

What to Look for in a Hydroponic Veggie Growing System

Searching online for hydroponic supplies or systems produces an overwhelming range of options, especially if you’re not an expert. The best way to get started in growing your own vegetables is to find an inclusive system that provides everything you need.

For instance, the Lettuce Grow Farmstand is a simple, easy-to-use hydroponic system designed for beginners and even expert gardeners who just want a low-maintenance system. The Farmstand has everything you need in a hydroponic growing system:

  • A range of sizes for growing between 12 and 36 plants
  • A self-watering system
  • A self-fertilizing system
  • Vertical design to fit in any space
  • Seedlings to get started growing veggies
  • Low maintenance design – just five minutes per week

Not only does the Farmstand use less water – 95 percent less water than growing an equivalent amount of vegetables in soil – it’s also made from recycled materials. You’ll get your money’s worth of produce too. In just a few square feet, the Farmstand can grow as much as the harvest from 40 square feet of garden space.

Easy growing of vegetables truly is for everyone if you have the right product. With the Farmstand, you get a system that is ready to go. Just put in the plants and water, plug it in, and spend a few minutes a week helping it run smoothly.

Grow indoors or out, year-round, and enjoy more fresh, organic produce than you could get from a vegetable patch outside.

    How long do these stand last, realistically?

    One or two seasons would not be worth it. Plus no dollar amount listed for the seedlings, etc, that have to be bought separately. How much are those costs?

    Who pays shipping if the item has to be returned?

    Hydroponic gardening sounds like something I would be interested in.

    I am very interested in the hydroponic gardening process. I grew up in Northeast Alabama where we planted, painstakingly cared for our garden if at least 40-50 different types of vegetables and herbs and worked on and off all summer and into the fall harvesting our crops. I now live in West central Florida where the soil isn't dirt but, a mixture of sand and dirt. I have tried all the "tricks if the trade" to get all types of vegetables to grow with little success. The only thing I have had any luck with growing is hot peppers.
    I would love to learn the art of hydroponic gardening. If you could, would you send me your recommendations on getting started using this method and what equipment I should obtain to be successful at it. I will be greatly appreciative of your help and advice.
    Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
