Hydroponic vegetables at home can achieve vegetable freedom, but is it difficult to cultivate vegetables yourself? How do you start hydroponic vegetable cultivation yourself?In fact, the technology of hydroponic vegetables has long been very mature. Middle Eastern countries such as Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Israel, and others have started experimenting with water saving plants due to water scarcity.
Hydroponic cultivation of vegetables refers to a form of cultivation in which most of the roots of plants are placed in a nutrient solution and then supplied with water, nutrients, and oxygen through the nutrient solution. Among them, leafy vegetables are the most common types of hydroponic vegetables, such as lettuce, water spinach, and purple back vegetables. Some fruit and vegetable vegetables can also be hydroponic, such as cucumber, melon, and tomato. Hydroponic fruits can also be achieved, such as hydroponic strawberries. Let's take a look at how to grow hydroponic vegetables together!
Choose a suitable hydroponic planting system
The hydroponic tower system is the most popular indoor planting system.
Due to its three-dimensional structure and small footprint, it is extremely popular for family planting, and many Middle Eastern customers will also choose hydroponic towers to try hydroponic planting first. Moreover, it is an automated operation, and people can achieve the normal growth of crops as long as they operate according to the system prompts.
The NFT system is also a good indoor planting system.In order to be able to grow more vegetables per unit area, growers use the NFT vertical system for vegetable planting. Some green leafy vegetables, such as lettuce and coriander, grow well on the NFT system.As an automatic planting equipment includes three parts :Environmental control, water and fertilizer control ,and circulation pipeline.
Tile NFT system is more suitable for large area planting users.Its advantages are simple operation, easy management, low investment cost, even plant growth, etc.
The zip hydroponic system is a device that is often used in plant factories. High space utilization and small floor area. The zip hydroponic system can be divided to three main categories,including Single side zip system,double sided zip system,and zip system project.One side zipper system is good for indoor planting.The advantages of this system are small floor space, high space utilization, and flexible and easy placement. More water-saving than other planting methods.
In China, there are also many people using soilless cultivation to grow vegetables, but it is not as popular as abroad. On the one hand, due to the constraints of water and soil resources, there is no tension in some countries, and on the other hand, our own awareness of sustainable development is not high. But I believe that within a short period of time, hydroponics will definitely become an indispensable part of agriculture.
