Grow your own hydroponics Garden
Home Grown Hydroponics requires a little bit of research before you actually jumps in to start off with it. Home grown hydroponics is the best way you will be sure of what you want to cultivate? What you want to eat? How it is grown? And, what all things like chemicals or organic nutrients you will be putting to make your plant grow. Home grown hydroponics is the safest way to know actually what you actually wants to cultivate and how you want to cultivate it? Homemade hydroponics systems allows you to incur great results after few weeks but for that you have to be religiously dedicated towards it.
There are few defined steps which you must keep in mind to grow Home grown Hydroponics:
Nutrients – Make sure you put the organic nutrients injected into the roots of the plants through a good quality medium like through aeroponic way, water based nutrients solution etc.
Carbon dioxide – Plants use carbon dioxide (CO2), light, and hydrogen (usually water) to produce carbohydrates during photosynthesis, which is a source of food. Oxygen is given in this course as a by-product. Light is a main component in photosynthesis. homemade hydroponic systems gives a systematic and defined way for all these photosynthesis procedure in a predefined way.
Germination – Germination is a process when it first begins to grow. Seeds are first put in a growing medium like perlite for them to germinate. It’s a complete process that help them grow completely. Firstly , the seed must be active and not in dormancy. Every seeds has some specific growing temperature in which it grows perfectly. So, that particular temperature must be achieved for them to grow. Appropriate amount of moisture and oxygen must be there. Some seeds may even require specific levels of light or darkness for their proper growth.
Growing Medium – The growing medium is an important part of hydroponic system because it is this growing medium on which the bare roots of the plants sits upon and get its maximum nutrients by absorbing through the funnels which are half submerged in water mixed nutrients solution. Some types of media also helps in moisture and nutrient retention. Different mediums are suited to different types of plants and systems. It will be then best to explore all of your options to get the best option or recommendations for the hydroponic systems that you will be using before you actually start in.
Lights – Light is another very important factor for plant for the process of making food through method called photosynthesis which requires the natural light. But, at times like winter and other seasons when the days are shorter one can make use of artificial lights to helps plants do photosynthesis. The light actually helps grow a plants to its maximum but you can also do it artificially for this purpose if the need arise.
Macro and Micro Nutrients – Plants requires around 16 mineral nutrients for best possible growth. However, not every nutrients are important equally for the plant. The Three major minerals like nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K) are consumed by the plants in large amounts. copper (Cu), Boron (B), iron (Fe), cobalt (Co), manganese (Mn), molybdenum (Mo), and zinc (Zn) are the elements that only present in little quantities in plants and are known as micronutrients. So, all the required macro and micro nutrients should be kept in mind before you could even start.
Pest and Diseases – - Always try to maintain a hygienic growing environment
- Grow such plants that are pest resistant and have naturally selected disease.
- Ventilate your growing area completely and with the correct temperatures for your plants to grow effectively.
- Keep a close check on your plants so if any problem occurs you are able to fix it up instantly.
