Indoor hydroponics is a great fun way to grow plants in a controlled environment using nutrient-rich water instead of soil. Here are 6 steps to get started with indoor hydroponics at home:

  1. Choose a location: You'll need to choose a location in your home where you can set up your Hydroponic system. You'll need access to electricity, and water. (Not necessarily connected to a direct water source)

  2. Choose a hydroponic system: There are different types of hydroponic systems available, such as deep water culture, drip irrigation, ebb and flow, and nutrient film technique. Choose the one that best suits your aesthetics, space needs and budget. Agrihome Hydroponics Tower is suited for small indoor home spaces.

  3. Choose the plants: Not all plants are suitable for hydroponics. Choose plants that grow well in a hydroponic system, such as lettuce, herbs, tomatoes. Different plants also have varying harvest times (3 to 8 weeks)

  4. Set up the hydroponic system: Follow the instructions that come with your hydroponic system to set it up. You'll need to assemble the system, fill it with water, and add the nutrient solution.

  5. Plant the seeds: Once your hydroponic system is set up, it's time to plant the seeds. Follow the instructions for planting the specific plants you've chosen.

  6. Monitor and maintain the system: It's important to monitor the pH level, nutrient levels, and water level regularly. You'll also need to maintain the system by cleaning the equipment and replacing the nutrient solution when necessary.

With these steps, you'll be well on your way to enjoying fresh, healthy produce grown in your own home with indoor hydroponics. For Singapore home owners looking to get started with growing your own food, do check out AgrihomeSG's hydroponics products.
