Basic Hydroponics for Everyone by J Romer is a first essential for anyone interested in hydroponics. It has been completely revised and the latest information included. It contains a wealth of knowledge for anyone interested in growing vegetables, flowers, herbs, or berries. While it particularly relates to hydroponics the same principles and essential knowledge applies to growing plants in hydroponics or soil or growing medias. The book explains the advantages of growing hydroponics such as better control over the plants growth, easier to grow plants, less water used, completely natural nutrient used, less restrictions on where you can grow plants and improved yields. Almost all plants can be grown hydroponically including indoor plants. Included in the book are a range of simple inexpensive systems that minimise the effort in growing plants successfully. Also described are commercial systems and the criteria for selection of a system for each crop. While the use of a controlled environment has advantages it is not necessary. Included in the book are the things anyone starting out want to know such as environmental factors, materials for construction of a system, testing the water for plant nutrients, selecting the different growing medias, what could go wrong and how to correct the problem, and a host of other valuable information. Specific information on growing some major crops such as tomatoes, lettuce, carnations and strawberries is included. It is ideal for school students needing to set up a hydroponic project and for growers interested in a hydroponic crop venture. It is a practical guide to all you need and want to know about hydroponics.
