Hydroponic Plants: What to Grow

If you have recently been introduced to hydroponic kits and are considering giving hydroponic growing a go, today you are in luck as we are going to be providing a list of plants in which you will be able to grow easily. Hydroponics growing doesn’t have to be difficult and should in fact be fun, don’t put too much pressure on your self – Simply read this post, and then go and have fun.

You should always start off by growing vegetables that you love; you don’t want to end up with loads of produce that you and your family do not enjoy eating as this is a waste. If you family enjoys eating salad, you should stick to salad veggies such as lettuce and tomatoes. Another way to decide what to grow, is to work out what vegetables do not taste good from the supermarket, if you love the lettuce from Aldi for example, you should consider growing something different.

It is also mostly good advice for hydroponic growing beginners to stay away from root veggies such as potatoes and turnips. Not only do these take up much room in hydroponics systems but also they are difficult to grow. Don’t attempt these until you have more experience and larger hydroponics tent.

Herbs are a great thing for beginners to grow, not taking up much space or time and growing in abundance. Some of the herbs people choose to grow in this way include basil, mint, oregano, sage, thyme, chives, marjoram and rosemary.

What else shouldn’t you start your hydroponics journey off by growing? Corn, zucchini, summer squash and melon.  These can be grown hydroponically however again they take up way too much space and can take over complete hydroponic units. You are much better off spending your money and resources on crops more suitable for compact hydroponics systems – With another few good produce ideas to start with being beans, tomatoes and cucumbers.

What do you think? We would love to hear from experience hydroponics growers and for them to let us know what they think the easiest produce to grow are. We would also like to hear beginners about what they choose to grow, along with pictures of their great efforts.

Don’t forget that hydroponics is supposed to be fun and not a chore, you should enjoy ever second of the growing process, whether it is going right or wrong for you, remembering that it is all part of the learning and growing experience.
