Create an Indoor Oasis with VEVOR Hydroponic Systems


Immerse yourself in the unparalleled comfort of home, where no other place compares. Why not invigorate your indoor space with a captivating infusion of lush greenery through the wonders of a mesmerizing hydroponic system? It's a distinctive opportunity that beckons to plant enthusiasts, offering an oasis exclusively their own.


As the popularity of hydroponic systems surges, it becomes imperative to procure a superior masterpiece from an esteemed purveyor such as VEVOR. Renowned for their remarkable ease of use and unwavering structural integrity, VEVOR hydroponic systems have garnered widespread acclaim.


What Are the Basic Components of a Hydroponic System?


The perfect hydroponic system consists of numerous components that promote plant growth in a soilless environment. Understanding the various features is essential in ensuring everything is set up successfully.


Here are the essential hydroponic system components;


Reservoir: Holding the Nutrient Solution


You’ll be storing the nutrients your plants feed from in the reservoir. It’s mostly a container whose primary purpose is to hold the whole thing in one piece. Most hydroponic gardeners get creative with their reservoirs, while others use plain cans.


Hydroponic reservoirs need to be lightweight for operational efficiency. Other factors like plant size and reservoir lid also jump into play.


Growing medium: Providing support for plant roots


The growth medium supports the plants right from growth. It also plays a role in ensuring there’s efficient moisture and nutrients around the plant roots. Some popular hydroponic mediums are; clay pebbles, perlite, vermiculite, coco coir, and rock wool.


Water pump: Circulating the nutrient solution


Water pumps are vital in helping with the circulation of water and nutrient solutions to the plant roots. Water pumps may be submersible or inline.


Submersible water pumps are submerged into the reservoir and use hoses to transport water and nutrients to the hydroponic plants. Inline water pumps are mounted on the system’s exterior.


pH and EC meters: Monitoring and adjusting nutrient levels


pH and EC meters are crucial in determining the nutrient concentration in the hydroponic grow system. Maintaining an optimal pH level and nutrient concentration is essential for plant health and growth.


Different Types of Hydroponic Systems


Hydroponic systems foster nutrient delivery and plant growth while maximizing space. Here are the most popular hydroponic systems.


Deep Water Culture (DWC): Plants suspended in nutrient-rich water


In DWC hydroponic systems, plants are submerged in a nutrient-rich water solution, where the nutrients are taken up by their roots. It is an easy-to-setup hydroponic project, and you can use it for various plant types.


You can supply oxygen to the plant roots through diffusers or air stones. DWC is a cheap and popular method of nurturing hydroponic plants.


Nutrient Film Technique (NFT): Nutrient solution flowing over plant roots


The Nutrient Film Technique is another popular method of propagating hydroponic plants. It involves a thin nutrient film that is run through the plant roots, which are supported by a gutter or slope tray.


NFT systems are popular among commercial hydroponic growers as they offer a medium for growing multiple plants simultaneously. The roots are submerged in food-grade PVC-U, where they take up oxygen. NFT hydroponic systems are suitable for small and fast-growing plants.


Ebb and Flow: Periodic Flooding and Draining of the Growing Medium


Ebb and Flow hydroponic systems work by periodically flooding the growth medium with water and nutrients and draining all that back to the reservoir. The process is repeated at regular intervals.


The Ebb and Flow system favors growing multiple plants, even for commercial purposes. For instance, the VEVOR Ebb and Flow Grow Kit can hold up to 54 plants on one-tier. You can have up to four tiers!


Aeroponics: Plant roots suspended in air and misted with nutrient solution


Aeroponics involves suspending the plant roots in the air and fine-misting them with a nutrient-rich solution. The method maximizes air intake from the roots, which are constantly exposed.


Nonetheless, this method requires a lot of maintenance. Optimal results are achieved by installing a well-designed hydroponic misting system and following precise misting intervals. You can use the VEVOR Mist Maker under controlled conditions.


Drip Irrigation: Nutrient solution delivered directly to plant roots


Drip irrigation in hydroponics involves introducing a drip of the nutrient-rich solution to the plant roots. The drip is mostly controlled, where small tubes or emitters are piped to the plants.


Drip irrigation can be used on a variety of hydroponic plants.

FAQs About Hydroponic Systems


1. Can any plant be grown hydroponically?


While almost all plants can be grown hydroponically, leafy greens, non-fruit-producing plants, are perfect for indoor growth. However, strawberries, tomatoes, cabbages, flowers, and ornamentals can also be grown in hydroponic systems.


2. How often should the hydroponic nutrient solution be changed?


It’s best to change your hydroponic nutrient solution every 2-3 weeks in the average-sized system.


3. What is the ideal pH range for hydroponic systems?


The ideal pH range for hydroponic systems is 5.5-6.5. Around this pH, most nutrients are available to plants. Therefore, the nutrient culture in contact with the plant roots shouldn’t exceed that mark.


4. Can hydroponic systems be used outdoors?


Yes! You can grow your hydroponic plants outdoors. You won’t have to pay extra for lighting; the plants will also benefit from the sun.


5. What are common materials for Hydroponic Systems?


The most commonly used substrates for growing hydroponic plants are perlite, vermiculite, or coconut coir.


6. Which VEVOR hydroponic system model is highly recommended?


The 72-site 4-layered VEVOR Hydroponic System is highly recommended for anyone seeking to practice hydroponics commercially. It has an outstanding build quality and exceptional capacity. You can get as many as 108 spaces for growing your hydroponics.


Again, it’s easy to install and use.
