Easy Farming with Soilless Cultivation for Vegetables and Fruits
If we want to grow vegetables and fruits using hydroponic technology, choosing a hydroponic grow system might be just the first step. Hydroponics allows for soilless planting and requires much less water. Here are some noteworthy features: this planting method does not require too much space, making it ideal for urban dwellers and those who want to grow on a large scale.
Next, we will introduce some vegetables and fruits that can be easily grown using hydroponic technology.
Hydroponic cultivation of lettuce
Lettuce is very suitable for salads and sandwiches, and it is one of the most common vegetables grown in a hydroponic grow system. They grow very fast, and managing them is also easy.
We can grow this kind of vegetable in almost any type of hydroponic system, including NFT systems and tidal beds. Because lettuce is easy to care for, it might also be your first choice if you are trying hydroponics for the first time.
Hydroponic cultivation of strawberries
If we like strawberries, but are frustrated with their seasonality, and expensive prices, we can try growing strawberries in a hydroponic system to solve this problem.
Unlike lettuce, which can grow well in almost any type of hydroponic system, strawberries perform relatively better in tidal bed systems. Of course, we can also try growing them in strawberry troughs and NFT systems, which might produce surprising results.
Hydroponic cultivation of cucumbers
Cucumbers grow quickly and can also achieve excellent yields. Since cucumbers are warm-loving plants, make sure to provide them with sufficient light and temperature.
Hydroponic cultivation of spinach
Spinach is another plant that can grow quickly. Although they can thrive in almost all types of hydroponic grow systems, like all other forms of hydroponics, spinach requires much less water. In addition, we can cultivate them from seeds.
In addition, peppers, kale, tomatoes, celery, and other plants are also very suitable for hydroponic cultivation, both for home and large-scale cultivation, and they are easy to grow. Although planting them may seem daunting at first, especially for beginners, as time goes by, the process will become simpler. This is because hydroponic agriculture is not only sustainable but also fast, simple, and convenient, and we will love this feeling during the growing process.
