Hydroponics Farming that Maximises Vertical Space to Grow Barley Grass

Hydroponics gardening can not only be used to grow vegetables and fruit such as tomatoes, strawberries, and lettuce, but it can also be used to grow fodder for livestock. Read this post to learn how a 60 square metre greenhouse is being used to grow 2 tons of barley grass fodder for cattle each week.

Aquaponics vs Hydroponics Gardening

Aquaponics vs Hydroponics Gardening

Aquaponics is the combined growth, culture, or farming of aquatic animals and plants. The plants in aquaponics thrive on by-products of the fish and other aquatic animals that are being grown, resulting in faster growth and better yields. I would very much like to see a side-by-side comparison of aquaponics and hydroponics to see under which conditions plants grow better.

Demonstration Video of a Flood and Drain Hydroponics System

A schematic video demonstrating how a flood and drain (also known as an ebb and flow) hydroponic system works. Hydroponic nutrients are periodically introduced and then removed to plants grown in individual containers. Numerous plants can also be grown in the one container. The flood cycle feeds and waters the plants, while the drain cycle oxygenates the plant roots, providing accelerated plant growth.

Deep Water Culture Hydroponics System with Aquaponics

A deep water culture hydroponics system that is termed a hydroponics farm by this gardener. There are numerous containers all using the deep water technique. They are linked to each other and liquid is circulated between the various containers. Hydroponic nutrients might be being used, but it looks like it’s just water to me. There is also an aquarium with live fish hooked up to the system.

Under Current Deep Water Culture Hydroponics System - Animation

Here is a novel type of hydroponics system for hydroponics gardening that is a combination of the deep water culture and dutch bucket systems. Suitable for growing any type of hydroponics plant, this system continuously recycles nutrients between a main reservoir and the individual growth containers. A backup nutrient reservoir keeps the nutrients topped up using a floating valve.

Benefit of Oxygenated Water in Hydroponics Gardening

An experiment comparing oxygenated and non-oxygenated water in the hydroponic growth of plants. Oxygenated water and nutrients provide quicker growth, and a more robust, more conistent crop. Oxygenation might also increase the availability of nutrients to plant roots by continuous mixing of the nutrient solution

Hydroponic Garden Carousel

Hydroponic Garden Carousel

Growing plants in a vertical environment is a great space saver. This idea of growing them in a carousel takes vertical hydroponics gardening that one step further, making the ultimate utilisation of vertical and horizontal space. In this case spinach is planted around the outside of the carousel, and a grow light in the centre of the carousel makes the plants grow “up” towards the light.
