You've heard how fast plants grow in a hydroponics system. You've heard about the huge harvests. Once you have it set up you will only need to spend a small amount of time per day monitoring the plants. 

Discover shortcuts that will help you build a hydroponics setup quickly and easily... and cheaply.

Hydroponics is NOT complicated once you understand how to get started. There are five types of hydroponics systems, and this ebook will show you why matching the right system to your situation can save you a lot of frustration.
 

   What's the difference between hydroponics
   and an ordinary garden?

"Hydroponics how to"
Plants grown in hydroponics have their roots in a clean neutral media such as clay balls or perlite, instead of dirt. A nutrient solution is circulated to the roots via a pump or wick action.

The plants don't have to waste energy developing a large root system because the food is delivered right to the roots. Since it no longer has to search for its food, the plant's growth and energy are redirected to lush foliage and abundant flowers and fruit.

My name is Stella. I have 13 years experience with hydroponics, and a little later I will explain my bizarre introduction to this easy way to grow plants. But first...


If you are thinking about getting involved with hydroponics you need to answer these three questions:

1. How are you going to build it?

2. Is there going to be enough space and light?

3. How are you going to maintain it?

 

   Hydroponics How To:
   Choosing the right system is the 1st step

Before you start gluing pipe together shouldn't you decide which system is best for you?

This e-book will take you on a journey, almost like going down a garden path, and help match the right system to your situation.




In this comprehensive gardening e-book, you'll discover…

  • The quickest, easiest hydroponics system to build. You can get started in hours rather than days and the system is built from common materials so you can save money.

  • 5 ways you can get started in hydroponics on a pauper's budget. You don't have to get the most complex system to get incredible results. There are 2 plans that can be built out of common materials you may already have. You can get the rest at Home Depot.

  • Which crops to grow and which to stay away from. You can grow just about anything with hydroponics, but some plants will take over, stealing light and space from smaller plants. Here you'll learn which plants are the smartest, easiest... and tastiest.
     
  • A Forbidden Hideaway. The last chapter in the book shows you how to create a space in your home to grow plants that nobody will know about. To the outside world you are an ordinary neighbor. But inside "the Grow Box" a different world exists that makes plants grow like crazy.

    *And don't miss the bonus secret to supercharging your grow box with CO2.

Reach for the light!

   Hydroponics How To:
   So what's the big deal about lighting?



Give your plants the right amount of space and light and they will grow right before your eyes.

Obviously, you know that plants need light to thrive, but don't you want a lighting system that will fit your situation and fit your budget? There are a number of different ways to get the right amount of light to your plants.

This e-book will show you where the deals are and also what to watch out for. Lighting can be the single greatest expense... and a critical component.

hydroponics thrive under HID lamp
  • Too broke to buy lights? How to get around this roadblock. Hydroponic systems do better in a temperature controlled environment, but there is a way to use hydroponics on the patio- if you will obey this one cardinal rule.
     
  • The crazy way to get full spectrum lighting. Not only will you save money but your plants will have the closest thing to the sun. Your plants will think the house they live in is actually the Imperial Valley. You will get unbelievable yields- at a fraction of the price.
     
  • Plants are all the same and have the same requirements. Right? Wrong! If you are only growing lettuce, you may not even need artificial lighting.

    On the other hand, if you want to grow tomatoes or anything that is going to have flowering buds, then you must provide the necessary amount of light and nutrients so the plants will have plenty of buds or fruit.

  • What you must do to avoid getting eaten alive! Believe it or not, bugs can wreak havoc, even in a spare bedroom. Chapter 14 shows you the easiest methods for keeping them away from your crops.
     
  • Why organic fertilizers can stunt plant growth. Doesn't make sense, does it? The trouble with organic fertilizers is they can be wildly inconsistent. If you are eager to use organic, wait till you are a little more experienced. The book will tell you the most potent fertilizer to buy... and where to get it.

Do you remember your first garden?


Remember how hopeful you were? You prepared the ground, planted the seed, maybe put on a little fertilizer. After a few days the little sprout popped up out of the ground.

What a thrill!

How I learned Hydroponics

I  learned to love gardening during my own back-to-the land adventure in rural Louisiana in the 1980s. There on 5 acres, I raised two children, two horses, two dogs, a goat and some chickens.

Over the next decade, I tried it all.... a square foot garden, a french intensive garden, many large traditional plowed gardens, mulberry bushes, pineapple patches, muscadine grape vineyards; I've canned pickles, home brewed beer and made orange wine. I baked bread from scratch, made home-made butter, froze green beans and canned tomatoes.

tilling is a chore

It was wonderful growing our own fresh fruits and veggies. But the reality of it is, it took a ton of hard work and perseverance to fight the bugs and the weeds! Crop production and quality was always inconsistent... dependent on the soil, the weather, and the pest invasions.

Eventually, life events intervened, as they always seem to do, and by the 90s, I found myself divorced with 2 kids, and living in the city. My Mother Earth Adventure was but a fond distant memory.

Epcot hydroponics exhibit

My lightning inspiration came at the most unlikely place, Disneyworld!  My partner Simon and I visited Epcot Center at Disney World in Orlando and toured the "Living With the Land" exhibit. This is an awesome hydroponics project in action. If you ever make it to Epcot, don't miss it!

Well, that was it... the wheels started turning, and we were off and running with the hydroponics method of gardening!

At first, we were bewildered. There's LOTS of conflicting information and product recommendations on Hydro gardening out there.

Since that time, we have experimented, tinkered and learned with the 6 major hydroponics methods widely used today. We have planted garden after garden in different systems, configurations, seasons of the year, and types of crops.

And we have it all figured out.  :-)

   Hydroponics How To:
   Secrets of the Pros...


The secrets experienced hydroponic gardeners use to Turbo-charge plant growth. Use any of these secrets and your plants will grow faster than your neighbors. Use them all and you'll be bringing home ribbons from the fair.

  • Why setting up a hydroponics garden in a bedroom can backfire horribly (all that work for nothing.) The book will show you how an adjustment that only takes 20 seconds to perform will transform a certain failure into breathtaking success.
     
  • How to whip the problem of "hard water".

Bottled veggies
  • The two requirements for hydroponic success. Just do these two things and you are almost assured a bountiful harvest. HINT: Keep the plants in their comfort zone.
     
  • Why plants grown in a hydroponics system out-grow, out-taste, and out-perform ordinary gardens.
     
  • Discover the ordinary household appliance that makes bugs cringe every time it is turned on. Some of the safest ways to control pests are also the most effective... and cheapest.              
     
  • How to turn a coconut into a tomato. Hydroponics is a different world; ordinary soil is not used and one of the best soil substitutes is coconut coir, which is the husk that surrounds the coconut. The book will explain why mixing it with perlite will give you the best results.

chef using fresh herbs
  • The better way to add spice to your cooking. Herbs are one of the crops that do great in hydroponics.

    The e-book will show you an easy way to the freshest herbs instantly available- right in your kitchen. (Just like a gourmet restaurant!)
     
  • Do this one simple thing on a regular basis and your garden will flourish. Neglect to perform this easy test and your plants will enter a downward spiral they may not recover from. Adjusting the pH sounds like chemistry class, but the book shows a way so easy a five-year-old can do it.




What does car repair have to do with hydroponics?


When the clutch went out on our Toyota, my husband decided to replace it himself. He is handy so I thought it would be a good way to get the car fixed. He bought the parts needed for the job and thought he could save money by doing the work without a repair manual.

When he finished the job, he had a few bolts left over. One of them was for the rear engine mount. The engine shifted and caused the drive shaft to lean against the catalytic converter.

After the spinning shaft had ground a hole in the converter, it started spewing fumes from under the car. However, the most embarrassing thing about this car is it now sounds like a Hot Rod because the converter has a hole in it.

If he had bought the repair manual, he would've known how important that one bolt was. He would've saved money... and a lot of frustration.

This e-book is your "pre-repair manual" for hydroponics. So you can do it right the first time.
