One of the first things you need to start hydroponic systems in your home is a grow tent.  We offer a complete selection of tents that can be used both inside and outside your home.  You also need artificial light that mimics sunlight.  The tent allows you to regulate the humidity and temperature for the plants, and the light gives them what they need for photosynthesis.  You will have to add nutrients to the water, but a good natural fertilizer should be enough for most plants.

Adapting Plants for Hydroponic Systems

Most plants start from seeds, and then grow roots and stems when exposed to water and soil.  For hydroponic systems, you are removing the soil, so the seeds have to be tricked into growing.  This can be done by placing them in a shallow pan of water with plenty of nutrients.  The seeds should not be under the water; the little exposure to air will make them assume they are underground.  They will start to grow, and can be placed into a regular hydroponic tanks as soon as the first stalks appear.
