Growing Outdoors

by John
(Lima, Peru)

I'm contemplating a hydroponic garden outdoors but everything I've seen so far is about growing indoors. Also I live in Lima Peru so I'm not sure what supplies are available down here. Are the any issues growing outdoors?

Answer from Stella/Simon:
Hi John,

It is possible to do hydroponics outdoors in temperate weather. It needs to be covered so rainwater would not overwhelm the system or interfere with electrical components. It would be better also, if it was in a screened in the area so your bug battles would be fewer. I really don't know what to tell you about supplies available in Peru, you would just have to look through my website, figure out what you need, and then see what you might be able to find there.

For more on outdoor/porch gardening, see this page: Outdoor Hydroponics

Hope this helps!

You can use Wick Hydroponics if no pumps are available, or use a water tank type that is higher than the bed and use gravity feed, if you can get tubing, and hot glue them, this could go on and on, You apparently have access to internet.
research is the key, there are example of off grid hydroponic systems on the web.

Good Luck
