The Top Benefits of a Hydroponics Garden Kit
Aeroponics systems, a niche form of hydroponics, are sustainable, soil free and non-invasive ways of growing plants, in which plants are suspended in mid-air with their roots exposed. With a simple hydroponics garden kit, you can grow your own food at home easier than ever before. Here, we discuss some of the top benefits of hydroponics and look into how vertical hydroponics systems can help you save money and eat healthier.
Reduced Food Waste
As a global society, we produce more than enough food to feed the entire world, however, every day 811 million people go hungry, with tens of thousands of people dying each day because of starvation. A huge contributor to this problem is food waste, with close to 1/3 of all food produced being lost or wasted. When you use a home aeroponics system, you can grow your own herbs, fruits and vegetables and eat only what you need, reducing your food waste contribution significantly.
Lower Water Use
It is estimated that a commercial farm requires 80 litres of water to produce one serving of a garden salad containing lettuce, tomato, and cucumber. By using a hydroponics gardening kit, you can create the exact same dish using as few as 5 litres. In general, growing hydroponics required 95% less water than growing with traditional soil-based gardens and farms.
Significantly Less Space Required
Previously, growing fruit and vegetables at home meant you needed a large outdoor space. With the introduction of aeroponic systems, you can now get the same yield by using one tenth of the space.
Plants Grow Faster
By installing a vertical hydroponic garden, you can grow your plants 3x faster than traditional garden and farming techniques. This allows you to get more food in a smaller period, meaning you save money and reduce your carbon footprint at the same time.
