"Gardening is not a rational act."

We highly recommend these two new kits if you prefer an all-inclusive approach to getting started in hydroponics (as opposed to do-it-yourself or building a setup from recycles):


The Aeroponics 8

Aeroponics systems utilize a continuous, 24/7 micro-misting of the plant roots with highly oxygenated aerosolized Nutrient Solution. This hydroponics method promotes amazingly rapid and robust plant growth (probably the most prolific system available today).

The Big Boy Ebb & Flow System

Ebb & Flow systems are the "workhorses" of the hydroponics industry. Simple, reliable and prolific, they provide periodic flooding of the plant roots with nutrient solution, followed by draining back into a reservoir for re-use.

Hydro Tip of the Month-   Ever think of starting a hydroponics garden in a tent or closet? Now why would you do that?

Well, there are some very good reasons:

  • No room otherwise (create some garden space)
  • Hide the lights, sounds and earthy odors
  • The best reason of all: create a turbo-cooled, climate controlled grow lab.
