Taking the first step into growing hydroponically can seem a daunting prospect. The best way to master the techniques of hydroponics is to start small to understand the different processes involved. Knowing why pH and EC is so important for plant growth and how it affects your plants if it is wrong, gives you the basic knowledge to develop further into hydroponic growing. Trial and error is important to help with the understanding of hydroponics and will eventually give you the confidence to keep growing.
Research is crutial. Read as much literature as you can on the system types and crop types you wish to grow. What will work in the space you have available? Can you use natural light or do you need to supplement this? You may be able to find more information on our Resource Page.
