Hydroponic Grow Systems

The systems we offer here are all considered basic good for getting started systems.  They all come with excellent documentation and all are supported by excellent websites with more helpful advice and tips.  I have tried all of these systems and feel they are good starter systems without breaking the bank. 


Emily's Garden is a winner in my book.

  • Hydroponic garden system with 6 planters, seed starter cubes, Geolite growing medium
  • Large 2-gallon reservoir and pump irrigation system for easier watering
  • Six 6- by 6- by 7-inch planters with growing medium for optimal plant development
  • Geolite growing medium, rather than soil, for 5 times faster cultivation
  • Includes instructions, air pump, tubing, formed cover, pH test kit, water level indicator
  • Raising your own plants is more fun than ever with Hydrofarm's hydroponic kits. Emily's Garden comes with Geolite Growing Medium, a lightweight, pH-neutral clay aggregate that captures just the right amount of moisture. Also, you can give your hydrogarden all the vitamins and nutrients it needs with the all-purpose nutrient solution that's included. Just mix 1 teaspoon with a gallon of water before initially filling or topping off the water supply. The kit also includes a formed cover that allows for six separate planters, a pump/irrigation system, and a handy-dandy dipstick that stays on top of the water level. Remember, hydroponically grown plants need the same amount of light plants grown in soil, so an adequate light source is still essential.

Whether you’re a new urban farmer or an old-school green thumb, raising your own plants is easier, faster, and more fun than ever with this hydroponic gardening system. Hydrofarm Megagarden Hydroponic Gardening System features a 4-square-foot garden space that produces 5 times the yields of a standard garden its size. That’s right. This 10-inch-tall garden system grows lettuce, herbs, vegetables, orchids and more, indoors or out--5 times faster than the standard garden--and does it without using soil.

The Megagarden works great indoors, or outside in hobby greenhouses when illuminated with a Hydrofarm Sunburst Series grow light (not included), or any grow light. At the heart of the Megagarden is a super efficient flood-and-drain pump irrigation system that ensures optimal moisture control for healthy roots. The system works by pumping nutrient solution up from a reservoir to a water tray where water levels are precisely controlled. Plants are watered uniformly on a timed cycle for optimal moisture control and healthier roots.

The soilless Megagarden’s removable grow tray measures 23 inches by 23 inches square and holds fifteen 5-inch, plastic grow pots filled with, not soil, but either the included fired-clay or pebble grow media. The system comes complete a 7-1/2-gallon reservoir, submersible pump, timer (capable of up to 12 flood settings per day), rock-wool starter cubes, 16 ounces of Hydrofarm All-Purpose Nutrient, a pH test kit, and complete instructions.
