hydroponics systems

Using hydroponics systems, mineral nutrients are dissolved in water and feed directly to a plant's root system allowing the plants to focus their energy into growing mostly upward, promoting quicker growth, faster harvests and higher yields.

Hydroponics systems are used year-round both indoors and outdoors for growing herbs, foliage and food items. Hydroponics setup do not use soil but instead, use an inert growing medium to anchor a plant's roots.

The different types of hydroponics systems available include…

Nutrient Film

Hydroponics gardening utilizing an oxygen rich nutrient solution, is an ideal system for a wide range of crops including lettuce, strawberries, herbs, flowers, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, squash and cucumbers.

Drip Watering

Popular with small commercial hydroponics growing operations, hobbyists and schools this system is designed to grow tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, herbs and flower crops.


Excellent for starting large crops of seedlings, transplants and cuttings or growing plants or crops to full maturity, this system sprays the roots with nutrient-rich water.

Ebb and Flow

Popular for rooting cuttings, germinating seedlings and vegetating young plants which are fed automatically with a simple flood and drain watering method.

Passive Systems

Great for home or office this system can grow any type of vegetative, flowering or fruiting plant. The plant determines when it needs water and nutrients.

Relatively simple to operate and very easy to maintain, hydroponics systems provide the right conditions allowing plants to grow between 2 and 4 times faster than those in soil.
