Author(s): Tyler Baras

Gardening and Outdoors

With practical information aimed at home DIYers, author Tyler Baras (Farmer Tyler to his fans) shows exactly how to build, plant, and maintain over a dozen unique hydroponic systems, some costing just a few dollars to make.

No soil? No sunlight? No problem. A hydroponic growing system gives you the power to grow plants anywhere. Even if you live in an area where water is scarce, a hydroponic system is the answer you've been looking for. Hydroponic systems are sealed and do not allow evaporation, making water loss virtually nonexistent. Simply suspend your essential nutrients in a water-based solution and circulate them to the plant roots in a contained network of vessels and tubes. This accessible guide provides the solid information you need for hydroponic gardening success.

Farmer Tyler shows you, with detailed step-by-step photos, precisely how to create these systems, and how to plant and maintain them. All the information you need to get started with your home hydroponic system is included:

  • Recipes for nutrient solutions

  • Light and ventilation sources

  • Comprehensive equipment guide

  • Growing and maintenance instructions

  • 12+ hydroponic system builds

  • Complete crop selection charts

DIY Hydroponic Gardens is the best resource available for getting started in hydroponics.
