Do you lack the opportunity to grow outdoors?
You must try hydroponic cultivation!
The cultivation takes place in oxygen-rich water instead of in soil. The plant's root system is in constant contact with water and nutrients, which means that they do not have to search for it in the same way as in soil. This makes the plants surface-efficient and grows larger in a shorter time. The oxygen that the plant & the roots need to be obtained either through an oxygen pump son oxygenates the water or by leaving an air gap between the water surface and the plane where the plant forms special air roots.
Grow indoors and outdoors
It can be grown with hydro systems both indoors and outdoors. Keep in mind, however, that outdoor cultivation only works in the warmer season. However, you can take in the cultivation when the cold starts to creep in. Many start hydroponically inside and then move out either hydroponically or replant in soil to get an earlier and richer harvest. You should therefore not take plants from soil to hydroponics, the risk of getting nasty bacteria is too great.
A smart system for the home grower
Hydroponic cultivation is perfect for you who like to cultivate at home - on the balcony or as a complement to your garden land. The big advantage is that it only takes a few minutes to get started and that no previous experience is needed. It is therefore a perfect system for those who do not have green fingers! It is difficult to water a plant that lives in water.
Large harvest quickly.
When you grow hydroponically, the plants grow faster and bear fruit in just a few weeks. The harvest will be generous, in a small area!
Grow different plants in the same crop.
If you want variety and grow different types of vegetables and herbs, you can do it in the same cultivation - without separate boxes.
Avoid soil spillage indoors.
Since hydroponic cultivation does not require any soil, you do not have to deal with soil stains indoors or on the patio. You also avoid dragging expensive and heavy earth sacks home.
Complement your gardening.
Grow hydroponically when there is no space in the garden land or when the season is coming to an end and it is starting to be autumn.
Minor problems with diseases and pests.
As the substrate is non-organic, there will be less problems with pests as these are often dependent on soil for the life cycle.
Just to replenish water and nutrition and harvest.
How do I get started?
Our goal is to make it easy and cheap to get started. Therefore, we have made a couple of starter packs with slightly different content, so you should find one that suits your ambitions. You can easily and cheaply build your own cultivation box. See here how we did.
Place the box brightly in a window or outdoors. If necessary, you can buy plant lighting, which is especially good during the darker season. When the box is in place and you have filled it with water, you can in good conscience leave the box to its fate and follow the development of the plants. Avoid running with the watering can and check the soil moisture. The hydroponic cultivation box takes care of itself.
Suitable plants for hydrosystems
It is possible to grow many types of plants with hydroponic cultivation. However, it is agreed that leafy greens and herbs are best suited. Here are some examples of easily grown plants in a hydroponic cultivation system.
Lettuce, preferably one that grows a little tall, ie romaine lettuce

Discover the benefits and simplicity of hydroponic cultivation. Hydroponic cultivation is also better from an environmental point of view and does not require dangerous fertilizers that leak further into nature. No transport of soil. All the water and all the nutrients you add will benefit your plants.
