You don’t have to invest in a lot of expensive, high-tech equipment to start an indoor garden. For less than $75, you can build a basic hydroponic system and get a crop growing. The setup explained here is an adaptation of the design introduced by Bernard A. Kratky, Ph.D., an emeritus horticulturist at the University of Hawaii. He developed the system for urban food growers, though it works for anyone who wants to start a small indoor garden. It needs no pumps, tubing, or maintenance of any kind. With this setup, you can grow eight plants in a fairly small space. It’s the easiest way to begin your first indoor garden, and you can reuse it for years.
As with any undertaking, you need the right tools to get the job done well. Hydroponic gardening is no different! Along with a power drill, 2-inch hole saw attachment, and water-soluble organic hydroponic fertilizer for your plants you will need the following tools to help you get started
Hopefully you are well on your way to growing plants in your brand new, DIY hydroponic system.
