Which hydroponic method should I use?

First visit your local hydro store or garden center. Examine various systems and discuss options with a professional. Choose a system based on what type of gardener you are. Do you prefer a system that is easy, lazy, or advanced?

The easy Way All that’s needed is a good draining container and a watering can. Fill the pot with soaked Grodan GROW- CUBES or absorbent granulate. Pot up a plant. Water using a watering can, and don’t forget to add in liquid nutrients every time to fertigate the plants. Alternatively, one can use slow-release fertilizer pellets instead.

The Lazy Way

• Buy or build a self-watering planter that has a reservoir with a re-circulating pump. You can set one up on a timer and leave your house plant for weeks.
• Set up an Ebb and Flow system where a reservoir and pump flood a table with nutrient solution. Most people use larger GRO-BLOCKS on flood tables. The flow of solution is set up on a timer. Check the solution in the reservoir periodically for correct pH and nutrient level.

The advanced Way

• Set up a drip irrigation system just like commercial growers. The plant food is delivered directly to the plant with the use of a reservoir, pump, drip stakes and tubing. This is the best way to grow the biggest plants in Grodan. Use GRO- BLOCKS on top of GRO-SLABS.
• Make an NFT system (Nutrient Film Technique) where the plant food flows gently over the roots. These are just a few suggestions to help get you started.
