Your hydroponic garden can grow outside if that’s your decision to do so. By allowing plants to grow outside, you’ll use sunlight to fuel your plants’ development. This is a great, inexpensive solution for your hydroponic system because you won’t have to pay costs associated with lighting.
However, there are definite downsides to growing outside – your crop is subjected to all the threats a normal crop faces: Severe weather, erratic temperatures, bug invasions and pest animals. Excessive rain can also pose a significant problem – it may dilute your nutrient solution and put your plants at risk of malnourishment.
All that being said, if you’re located in a fairly stable climate zone where weather and temperatures are constant, there are plenty of OMRI Listed® solutions to fighting outdoor insects and pest animals.
