How to Grow Hydroponic Vegetables?

Apr. 20, 2020

Leafy vegetables use stems and leaves as materials, and can even be eaten raw, which has certain requirements for the freshness, cleanness and pollution-free of vegetables. And hydroponic leafy vegetables are cleaner, taste better, and nutritious. Therefore, most leafy vegetables can be grown by hydroponics.

Although leafy vegetables are not easy to store, in order to meet market demand, they need to be produced continuously every year. Hydroponic leafy vegetables can be sown, planted, harvested and continuously produced every day, which is the advantage of hydroponic cultivation.

Hydroponic vegetables also have a great advantage, that is, the short growth cycle of hydroponic vegetables requires only one nutrient solution from planting to harvest, without replacement in the middle. The cultivation and cultivation of hydroponic vegetables is carried out in a greenhouse. In order to ensure the healthy growth of vegetables, greenhouses are generally equipped with light adjustment facilities, that is, greenhouse plant fill lights, ventilation facilities, and temperature and humidity adjustment facilities. In summer, there are anti-insect plates to prevent pests from occurring.

Hydroponic facilities generally consist of nutrient tanks, nursery equipment, cultivation tanks and cultivation plates, liquid addition systems, drainage systems, and circulation systems.

Chlorophyll in vegetables can help the body detoxify and digest and absorb nutrients. A variety of delicious meat-assisted vegetable dishes have also become a favorite with many people. However, vegetables can be grown not only in the soil, but also in the water. Recently, it has become more and more popular to grow vegetables and fruits indoors, at home, on balconies. People become happy.

Many people will ask "Is it convenient to grow vegetables in hydroponic cultivation at home?" "Is the crop not grown in the soil healthy?" For example, the greenhouse manufacturer will answer the question: In fact, due to weather, temperature, and pest problems Agricultural experts started to think about it very early, and found that hydroponic cultivation can work, planting plants indoors can ensure that the plants are at a comfortable temperature, and the plant fill light can make the photosynthesis of plants get the best care. , The quality at such maturity is almost excellent. Hydroponics can protect plants from insect pests and the influence of soil quality and surrounding water quality. In general, the area and growth time of hydroponic cultivation have been reduced, the quality of production has been improved, and management has also become convenient. This reform has also made many agriculture modern.

Hydroponic Sponge

The benefits of indoor hydroponic culture are clean. The hydroponic container is turned over and you only need to drag the clean water. It is also very convenient to take care of it. Unlike the soil cultivation, it does not require cumbersome care such as weeding, medicine, and loosening . Hydroponics only has water and nutrient solution, but it does not have those soil diseases. Although there will be problems with mosquito breeding in the water, as long as the mosquitoes are not allowed to come into contact with the surface of the water, it is naturally not a problem to protect them with hydroponic sponge.

There is no doubt about the health of hydroponic vegetables, because the elements of nutrient solution and fertilizer are the same, and the amount of nutrient solution used in the hydroponic system is also configured, so the grown vegetables will only compare with the soil. The vegetables grown are only strong. Seeing if everyone is here, you can grow vegetables at home to cultivate your temperament, and you can also eat what you grow. Under the decoration of plants, the room will become more close to nature. This kind of life is desirable.

There are many vegetables suitable for hydroponics, and tomato is one of them. Tomatoes are fruits and vegetables. Since most fruits and vegetables have a relatively long growth cycle, a growth cycle of about one year, and the nutrient solution is updated frequently during the period from planting to harvest, it is not suitable for hydroponic cultivation.

But tomatoes are not the same. Fruits and vegetables are mainly dominated by tomatoes. The most common is the hydroponic cultivation of tomato trees. Its characteristics are: strong disease resistance, which can be cultivated for long seasons; the flesh is hard, the peel is thick, and it is not easy to split the fruit; the plant grows vigorously, and the ability to bear fruit is strong; the adaptability to environmental conditions is strong, to high temperatures, low temperatures, and low light All have certain resistance.

Tomato trees are generally about 2.5 meters high, so the greenhouse required for tomato trees is relatively tall. Tomato is a herbaceous plant, and its stem is semi-vine, not like a tree, it needs a support to support the stem, leaves and fruits. Light is an important environmental factor that affects the flowering and fruit setting of tomatoes. Low light often causes flowers to fall. Therefore, it is necessary to install some plant fill lights in the greenhouse to fill the plants, so that the fill light can shorten the growth cycle of the tomatoes and improve the quality of the harvest. Cultivation ponds for tomato cultivation, also known as hydroponic beds, are containers for the growth of the roots of tomato trees. Cement ponds with a length of 3 meters, a width of 1.5 meters, and a depth of 30 cm are usually used. The surface of the hydroponic bed needs to be covered with a white foam board to provide a dark growth environment for the root system and prevent the growth of moss. There should be a water supply pipe above the hydroponic bed and a liquid return hole at the bottom of the bed to facilitate the circulation of nutrient solution. In addition, there should also be an oxygenation device, including an inflation pump and an inflation tube, whose function is to supplement the nutrient solution in the hydroponic bed with oxygen.
