No soil? No sunlight? No problem. A hydroponic growing system gives you the power to grow plants anywhere. Simply suspend your essential nutrients in a water-based solution and circulate them to the plant roots in a contained network of vessels and tubes. Sound easy? In a way, it is. But it also requires plenty of solid information to succeed, which is why you need DIY Hydroponic Gardens. With practical information aimed at home do-it-youselfers, author Tyler Baras (Farmer Tyler to his fans) shows exactly how to build, plant, and maintain over a dozen unique hydroponic systems, some costing just a few dollars to make. Farmer Tyler shows you, with detailed step-by-step photos, precisely how to create these systems, and how to plant and maintain them. All the information you need to get started with your home hydroponics system is included: recipes for nutrient solutions; light and ventilation sources; comprehensive and maintenance instructions; 12+ hydroponic system builds; and complete crop selection charts.--Cover.

If you have a lot of money and dig construction, this is your book. For everyone else, pass on this book. There are 7 types of hydroponic gardens described in this book and only the first one, bottle gardens, was readable and doable by an average person. The other six required construction tools, construction experience, a lot of room, and a lot of money. 1. Bottle garden. 2. Floating garden. 3. Wicking garden. 4. NFT garden. 5. Top drip garden. 6. Media bed. 7. Rain gutter garden.

If you got all excited about the rain gutter garden, don't. You'd need a huge yard to pull this off. :(
