This hardworking new book takes the mystery out hydropincs: the practice of growing plants in water-based media, usually in a contained environment, indoors or outdoors.

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

Growing produce without soil offers a unique opportunity to have a productive garden indoors or in areas where soil is not present. An expert in hydroponics, Baras has developed many unique and easy to build systems for growing entirely in water.

In DIY Hydroponic Gardens, he shows with 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, from recipes for nutrient solutions, to light and ventilation sources, to specific plant-by-plant details that explain how to grow the most popular vegetables in a self-contained, soilless system.

And it may seem counter-intuitive, but if you live in an area were water is scarce, a hydroponic system is the answer youve been looking for: suitable for outdoor use, hydroponic systems are sealed and do not allow evaporation, making water loss virtually nonexistent.
