Urban Farming For Home & Business -The Hydroponics Way-

When you think about home-based hydroponics, it makes so much sense!
It’s not complicated and once set up, all you have to do is maintain the water level, add fertilizer into the water from time to time and then just sit back and watch it grow. 
It is cost saving as you don’t have to pay top price for organic produce anymore.
Space saving too as the apparatus is vertical and in fact, a 48-pot system takes up less space than a single-door fridge!!  Just like the one shown below. 
Not messy as no soil is required. So you can even have it indoors provided there is adequate lighting.
Uses less (way less) water compared to traditional farming. The water is auto-irrigated and recycled and thus we are helping mother nature in conserving a precious natural resource!
Saves time too as there is no digging, weeding, shoveling etc. and your precious time can be used productively elsewhere.
What Kinds of Plants are Suitable for Hydroponics Farming?
Leafy Greens

If you are a lover of salads, this is for you as leafy greens like Pak Choy, Butter-head Lettuce, Coral Lettuce and Galaxy Lettuce are eminently suited to hydroponics farming. Generally, a complete cycle takes between 45-47 days through the following stages beginning with sowing stage to seedling to transplanting to monitoring and to harvest.

Rule of thumb: Plants to choose are typically ones with shallow root systems and plants that are known for reproducing.

So many to choose from! All types of basil, parsley, coriander, chives, celery, mint, rosemary, thyme, oregano, dill….the list just goes on and on.

Rule of thumb: Different herbs have different conditions to cater to for optimum growth and thus adjustments have to be made.
