You should probably know that hydroponics is nothing new, even if it is the first time you have heard about it, the practice has been going on for centuries, but recently it has been getting more attention because of the fabulous results many people are having within their greenhouses by implementing the Greenhouse Hydroponics LED Lights system.
One of the reasons is because by using hydroponics, you can control the exact amount of nutrients your plants need in order to grow abundant. There is no waste and the plants are getting exactly what they need and therefore, grow better and stronger than growing them in soil alone.
The easiest way to use hydroponics in a greenhouse is by using a drain and a flood system, which is not difficult to install. The food and drain basically flooding the water where the plant containers are and then draining it back out.
Therefore, it is flooding the plant containers with the nutrients and water and moving it back out. You will need to have a reservoir for the water and a pump so that the water can circulate in and out of the plant containers.
In addition to the drain and flood system, you will of course need the nutrients for the various plants and vegetation you have inside your greenhouse, which are added to the reservoir in the specified amount deemed necessary by the manufacturer. The nice aspect to the nutrients being added to the reservoir is that everything in the greenhouse can be fed from the same food source, so this cuts down on costs as well.
The bottom line is that using hydroponics in your greenhouse can be a very rewarding experience because takes all the guesswork out of what your plants needs and gives them exactly what they need, when they needed. What you reap is bigger and better plants and vegetation in a shorter amount of time. The hydroponics systems are definitely becoming more commonplace in greenhouses than several years ago.
