Backyard Hydroponic Greenhouse

Updated on August 22, 2010

Backyard Hydroponic Greenhouse

 Growing plants inside greenhouses has been very common, but combining the hydroponic system with greenhouse system doubles the benefits. Hydroponic greenhouse system allows you to harvest double or even triple the amount you would harvest using the same area through conventional planting system. If you want to start a hydroponic greenhouse in your yard, know that it doesn’t have to be expensive because recycled materials or cheap construction materials can be used. But if you don’t have the necessary skills to construct a hydroponic greenhouse for the first time, then buying a hydroponic greenhouse kit is an option.

 Hydroponic greenhouse kits come in different sizes and installation procedure; don’t waste your money by choosing the wrong kit to start with. All hydroponic greenhouse, however, include water tank and pump, plant rack, liquid fertilizer, and some kit has sample seeds also. If you have some DIY skills, you could build the greenhouse yourself or buy a small kit that you can install quickly also. Now if this is your first time to try hydroponic greenhouse gardening, then you should consider a starter kit size to learn the systems first before buying larger kits.

 For starters also, the best hydroponic greenhouse plants to try are lettuce and spinach because they grow low and they don’t demand too much attention from you. Tall growing plants such as tomatoes and peppers should be avoided by novices because they demand another construction to support their growth like a trellis. The starter kit is meant to teach you about the basics in hydroponic gardening like the liquid nutrient and water management for optimal growth of the plant. There’s nothing like a hands-on experience to let you feel what’s it like to maintain a hydroponic greenhouse, and this opportunity is needed to know if the type of gardening is really for you.

 If you want to dabble on larger hydroponic greenhouse gardening, you need to familiarize about the use of temperature control, heating and ventilation, more complex plumbing, large scale fertilization, etc. Open your mind to the possibility of doing business with your larger hydroponic greenhouse also because time will come that your harvest will exceed your families need for fresh vegetable – the prospect of producing to sell is there. Larger hydroponic space and enhanced gardening skills will allow you to plant other more complex plants like strawberry, tomato, pepper, radish, broccoli, etc. You could achieve all this by starting with a small hydroponic greenhouse kit you can use to develop your gardening skills with.
