This page will introduce you to the 4 simplest and most basic of hydroponic setups. Although easily and cheaply built, they are very efficient at growing an impressive array of fresh vegetables... or whatever other plants you might fancy.
We explain and diagram each process so you
understand how it works. Then we provide free plans so you can build your own
1-6 plant setup. This will "get your feet wet" as you learn the basics of hydro.
Later, we'll provide in-depth instructions for a bigger and better system. You can use some of the materials and equipment from your first project when you
get ready to upgrade. Please read all about the mini-farms first, they explain
clearly how the systems work. If you want to skip right to a full-sized garden,

Now, on to the DIY plans. We suggest you explore all four of them before deciding which one would be best for your needs. Each system has its pros and cons, and what you want to grow will be a big deciding factor.
The lettuce raft would make a great hydroponic science project for a child. Take an old 5 or 10 gallon aquarium and float a raft in it. The root system is visible and makes for a great display.
