Best Hydroponic System – In hydroponic system, nutrient is the most important aspect for growing healthy plants. Many new approaches and efforts have been carried out to develop this soilless cultivation in order to get the best hydroponic system even further. For beginner and not-for-commercial food growing, the increasing trend is making simple and space-saving indoor hydroponic system, especially in the urban areas.

For small scale gardening, you can choose most popular and simplest method of water culture, where you can use the Styrofoam to put the plants. This Styrofoam is placed on top of the reservoir, in which an air pump is installed to the reservoir to supply oxygen to the roots. This system is especially ideal for water-hungry plants, but not for more long-term plants such as tomatoes.

Another best and easiest system is vertical farming. It is specifically suited for urban areas, resident complexes located within multi-story buildings, or on the flat roof of story buildings. All you need is pipes, medium, air pump, water, nutrient, and reservoirs.

For having optimal indoor hydroponic garden, you have to take into account the lighting aspect, because lighting is the most important factor to hydroponic growing. You can bring the sun insight or at least stimulate the plants with recent high-tech lighting. The example is the improvements in light-emitting diode (LED) technology that has more benefits than the traditional growing lamps. By this advanced chip technology you can bring inside the combination of light intensity and maximum balance of light spectrum with cost effectiveness for whatever plant you are growing.

The last Best Hydroponic System that combines ancient farming methods with a modern twist is the technique of hydroponics and aquaculture – aquaponics. It is a dual system in which fish and plants (usually vegetables) are grown together in mutual symbiosis. The plants sit on a fish tank where from there water is circulated by the help of a pump. In what-so-called closed loop system, the plants live from the fish waste, and the fish get the benefits from the water purified by the plants.

Hydroponic Potatoes

Hydroponic Potatoes – The hydroponic technology has given us with the ability to grow plants, including potatoes, at your small space yard, condo balcony, or small yard greenhouse. This system also enables us to grow them year-round in the warmth of your home, as long as the plants are exposed to sunlight through your windows most of the day. Especially for potatoes, the aggregate method works well, where it employs inert material such as pebbles or perlite to support the plant and root system while it’s growing.

To get started, find or buy a sturdy container. It should be at least ten inches deep, doesn’t matter the size or the shape. Light colored containers are preferable because they can reflect light and thereby will not build up heat on hot sunny days. Next, make holes by drilling around the perimeter of the container two inches above the base and two inches apart (not on the bottom) to permit excess water to drain out of the container.

You can buy a bag of perlite and fill the container leaving 1 inch of space for watering at the top. You have to decide where to place your container before wetting the perlite, because once water is added, the container will be heavy and difficult to move. Try to find a spot that gets minimum of 6 hours of sunlight, preferably morning sun. And avoid areas that suffered from too much rain from roof runoff.  Add water until it drenches the container, obvious as it starts to drain through the holes.

For the seed, try to find certified potato seeds that have early maturing varieties (70 to 90 days) from a local seed or garden store. These may be a large of whole potatoes that can be cut into sections leaving two or more eyes (buds) per seed piece. Cut into sections and let them dry out for a day before planting.  Plant the seed pieces with the cut surface facing down about an inch below the surface and four to six inches apart.

Cover the bin with a lid until sprouts peek through the perlite, which mostly takes about two weeks. Remove the cover as soon as leaves pop up or only to water the plants, which you should do about every three to four days. Add liquid fertilizer at least once a week once sprouts appear. Mix 1 teaspoon of 20-20-20 fertilizer with micronutrients in a gallon of water. Pour in the fertilizer solution just as you would regular water, until it starts to drip out the drain holes. And expect happy first Hydroponic Potatoes harvest about 70 days after planting!
