VERTICAL HYDROPONICS

At first glance Vertical Hydroponics seems to be a very good way to grow using hydroponics. But let's think about it. There are some problems:

  • Vertical Hydroponics is expensive, neat, clean, but expensive

  • There are other alternatives. We favor the A-Frame to get the same favorable results

  • There are plant limitations, particularly for large plants such as trees.

  • Everything that can be done with Vertical Hydroponics can also be done with traditional methods and at far lesser cost.

    Vertical Hydroponics consists of plastic stacks whose installed plants are automatically watered on a time schedule that you determine in advance. The stacks are positioned on a stand which rests on a plastic cover - so if there is any leakage, it will flow out on the plastic. The bottoms of the stands never touch soil. That's an ideal situation. But at large cost. A Vertical Hydroponic garden is more like architecture than anything else I can think of.

    Now let's look at the A-Frame which can be found in our book "How to Start on a Shoestring and Make a Profit with Hydroponics"[See Below]. Here the same situation prevails:neat,clean and easy to setup and tend to. But at far less expense. If you want to grow large plants like trees, you will have to use the traditional hydroponic beds, such as the lumber companies use.

    Keep in mind that there are always new ways to grow with hydroponics. Some are good, some not so good. Many growers still follow the basic well-established methods, such as Ein-Gedi, Aeroponics,flood benches (the Japanese favor this one), the Bag Technique, NFT[Nutrient Film Technique], AVRDC, Aquaculture, and even some who choose sand and gravel beds. One large carnation producer in New Mexico still uses sand and gravel.

    So which is the best for you? How thick is your wallet? Are you in business to make money or to attract attention? It's good to know about all the various technmiques. But what do you really want to do with your time and money? The choice, of course, is up to you.
