Why Grow with Hydroponics

Hydroponic gardening can be fun and very rewarding. Like any endeavor, you do need to learn a few things to ensure you have a better success rate, but that is why we built this site! If you want to grow indoors, we have you covered. If you want to grow in a greenhouse, we have that covered too! Hey, if all you have is a few seeds and a couple of mason jars, we can even show you how to grow a nice salad garden. So dive in and learn why we think this is the best gardening method.

Our Mission

When we first started learning about hydroponics, we could not stop. But to find everything we needed in one place was simply not available. So we set out to help the beginner learn and find the resources they needed to experience the joy we found. Our mission is to provide an easy way to get into hydroponic gardening.

6 Types of Hydroponic Systems

There are a variety of methods used in hydroponic gardening. We identify and discuss the 6 most used systems, which you can adapt to any size garden. From your kitchen, to your greenhouse, to a large facility, these systems are tried and tested.

Which system is right for you? That is a personal choice but understanding each system with the pros and cons can help you make a educated decision. Learn all about different systems here.

The Kratky Method

The Kratky Method of Hydroponics is one of the simplest methods. Based on Dr. Kratky’s method of closed container gardening, learn how to grow in just water, with or without aeration. Have you heard about folks growing in mason jars? This is likely the method! This is a simple method and fun for kids.

N.F.T. (Nutrient Film Technique)

A N.F.T. system delivers a steady flow of nutrient solution. No timer or submersible pump is needed. The nutrient solution is normally pumped into the growing tray using a tube. This allows the solution to flow over the roots and then drain back into the reservoir.

Ebb and Flow System

Using a submerged pump, which is typically connected to a timer, the Ebb and Flow Hydroponic System floods the grow trays with nutrient solution. After a set time, the solution would be drained back into the reservoir. This is used more in commercial setups.


One of the most difficult types of hydroponic gardening due to the nature of the system. Like the N.F.T. system, the growing medium is basically the air itself. The roots hang in the air and are misted with nutrient solution typically every few minutes. The roots will dry out rapidly if the misting cycles are interrupted.

Drip System

One of the most widely used type of hydroponic systems world wide. A timer controls a submersed pump and the nutrient solution is dripped onto the base of each plant using a small drip line. What happened to the water after that can be done in a couple of ways and is dubbed Recovery or Non-recovery.

Floating Systems

The simplest of all hydroponic systems. Styrofoam (or other medium) floats hold the plants directly on the nutrient solution. An air pump supplies air to the air stone that bubbles the nutrient solution and supplies oxygen to the roots of the plants. Water culture is the system of choice for growing leaf lettuce.
