Do you lack the space needed to grow the amount of produce that you want? Think again.
Whether you don’t have enough garden area or don’t have the space at all, you can still plant a relatively abundant amount of produce with an A-frame hydroponic system!
Hydroponics offers people the ability to grow food in places where traditional agriculture simply isn’t possible. These include areas with arid climates and dense urban areas. The science also allows you to expand your produce!
An A-frame hydroponic system lets you grow at least twice the number of plants from a regular garden bed. For instance, the featured structure that you see above accommodates 168 plants in just a 6′ x 10′ space.
Not having to stoop down to check and tend to your plants is also a great bonus with this garden. ?
Now the most important thing in this system is to keep track of your water temperature. You should maintain it at around 65 degrees for optimal water oxygenation, thus preventing root rot.
You don’t have to worry about root development as the length of the pipes is enough for the full root growth of your plants!
This gardening system is definitely great for planting herbs, and some fruits and vegetables!
