8 Reasons To Start Growing Hydroponic Vegetables Today

Ever considered growing your own vegetables?

If you’re reading this, chances are you already know the benefits:

  • Spend less in the supermarket.
  • Harvest exactly what you need. No more half-lettuce rotting in the fridge.
  • Avoid dozens of chemicals supermarket vegetables have been sprayed with.
  • Enjoy tastier vegetables.

Growing your own food is a great idea. Still, if you really want to take your gardening and cooking experience to the next level, hydroponic systems provide both efficiency and convenience.

Why hydroponics? Let’s talk about it.

The hydroponic technology offers you the benefits mentioned above and helps harvest fresher and healthier vegetables in less time.

Below you’ll find 8 reasons why we think you have to start growing hydroponic vegetables today!

1. Eat Healthier Than Ever

Some months ago, during the Covid pandemic, we all experienced the need to wash our vegetables thoroughly to reduce the risk of infection.

Sadly, most supermarket vegetables are produced by a large-scale farming industry that uses dozens of pesticides and other harmful chemicals. So washing supermarket veggies isn’t unreasonable, but definitely, time-consuming.

As a result, many people have started growing their own vegetables. The problem is that growing your own food requires a lot of space and access to the sun. Unless you have a hydroponic system!

Whether you have a backyard, roof, patio, or no access to outdoors, with hydroponic systems, you can grow wholesome quality food all year long with little maintenance.

2. Increased Nutritional Value

Did you know that how our vegetables are picked, chopped, and even cooked can contribute to losing their nutritional value?

Scientists from the University of California discovered that external elements like light, temperature, air, and humidity directly impact the nutritional value of the food we eat.

Are you eating vegetables that offer little or no nutrition to your meals?

Remember this, the fresher the vegetable, the more nutritious it is.

Hydroponic systems allow you to pick the exact amount of food you need, so you and your family can always enjoy fresh and nutrient-dense vegetables.

3. Grow Food Without Soil

One of the great things about hydroponics is that your plants can grow without soil!

Hydroponic systems are designed for the roots to receive optimal nutrition, so they do not need to grow to find water.

You just need support for the water and the plant, a pump to keep the water flowing, and voilà. You can enjoy home-grown food without soil, worms, and dirt.

4. A More Sustainable Water Use

In hydroponics, nutrient water can be reused over and over again, reducing water overconsumption. That’s how, as opposed to conventional irrigation, you can control nutrient levels and save more than 50% of the water and nutrients your plants consume.

By optimizing water, nutrients, and space, your crop production also increases—the result is more plants in less space, with superior quality.

5. Prevent Pesticide Exposure

The same vegetables that otherwise would be good for you can be detrimental to your health due to the extensive use of chemicals sprayed in industrial crops worldwide.

Research shows that the use of pesticides is associated with serious diseases like

  • Cancer
  • Alzheimer's
  • Parkinson

To keep your family healthy, feed them and yourself with vegetables that weren't exposed to unwanted and dangerous chemicals.

As we said above, since hydroponic plants grow in a controlled environment without soil, they have fewer problems with pests and diseases, which also means savings on fertilizers and phytosanitary treatments.

Hydroponic systems enable you to feed your family healthily without exposure to harsh chemicals!

You can also easily remove plants infected with pests by taking out the net cup from the system and washing the plant separately.

6. Get a Return On Your Investment

Growing food hydroponically saves you money in the long run. Of course, it will entirely depend on the quantity, quality, and type of vegetables you grow.

We can guarantee your grocery bills will be reduced considerably due to:

  • Having access to your favourite vegetables at home will lower last-minute supermarket runs.
  • You’ll avoid half-lettuces rotting in the fridge by picking exactly what you need.
  • Eating healthy and spending less money on junk food is easier when you have fresh vegetables available.

7. Reduce Food Waste

Every day, tons of rotted, wrinkled, or expired vegetables are thrown away. According to the FAO, half the world's fruits and vegetables are wasted yearly.

Hydroponic farming allows you to pick the vegetables and fruits needed while everything else keeps growing strong until you are ready to eat it.

8. Help the Planet, your Future, and Your Life

Innovation benefits our lives, and that is exactly what we aim to do with hydroponic farming.

Hydroponic technology is a new approach towards sustainable agriculture, it guarantees a more comfortable, faster, and easier process since you need less space and time for your vegetables’ growth.

Cultivating your own salad at home helps to avoid unnecessary consumption and wasting cycles, which is a big step towards a more conscious world. It is also a great environmentally-conscious way to create awareness among children.

Become someone who fills the environment with greenery and a natural vibe!
