Getting Creative With Gardens Advice 1Things To Know About Hydroponic Systems You’re reading this probably with hopes of getting some hydroponics tips to help you with your plan if you want to start, modify or upgrade the existing hydroponic garden. Let’s begin by taking a look at what the common hydroponic system looks like and to how it could be expanded, improved or modified. Most existing systems may be expanded or restricted easily to fit the size of a garden or crop. That is among the best strengths of using hydroponics. Typical hydroponic system for home gardener is situated in the basement, shed, garage, greenhouse or closet. It composes of trays or beds, which is basically nutrient solution circulation system along with a reservoir, support matrix for plants either netting or media and grow light or an access to sunlight. If you wish to have better illustration on how this thing works, we better look at the common components put together. The parameters involved can be easily modified if you’re not using a static culture or a medium. Since typical home hydroponic garden uses both circulated and media solution, we could assume that is the case for such scenario. The trays are on table or framework in order to support them and at the same time, provide easy access to it. The hydroponics tips toward the drain in the bed’s other end which is where you find the hose going to the reservoir or just a fancy term for bucket. And from this bucket, there’s another hose that goes to the electric pump which is used to move nutrients and water back to the bed. This is poured in the tray, dribbling down to the bed trays all the way to the drain.

And just above the beds are group of grow lights that is supplying artificial sunlight. Using a rock wool medium for plants to root into is what used as covering for the beds. The plants themselves are reaching up from the solution that runs over their roots in getting light from grow lights above.

This setup is fairly basic yet, it has everything that’s needed in keeping a good hydroponics garden thriving and growing. The solution is either replaced or augmented occasionally through the reservoir. Now, every once in a while, the circulator is turned off and reservoir is then emptied, cleaned and also replenished with new water and solution. This is the required maintenance in keeping this setup healthy and running in optimal condition. Another known setup is called automatic solution dribbler that’s attached to the reservoir or circulation hose themselves and then, dribbles the measured solution to the system. It is sort of an IV on the hospital bed.
