Personal Hydroponic Websites

Adventures in Hydroponics

A nameless frustrated gardener shares his indoor and outdoor hydroponic gardening adventures while living in an apartment!
Long story short, I have fully converted the wood shop to a large grow room for hydroponics.  My hobbies tend to change quickly as I become bored.  I can honestly say this hobby will never become boring.

Fatalii’s Chiles

Fatalii’s Chiles is by far the most authoritative website devoted to the hydroponic cultivation of peppers!

Paul’s Hydroponic & NFT Growing Blog

Parts of the blog will contain information about the fruits and vegetables I have been growing for quite some time using Hydroponics methods, If you are interested in growing stuff please check these pages out. You might discover new ideas for your own growing.

Hydroponic Associations

Protected Cropping Australia

Formerly known as the Australian Hydroponic & Greenhouse Association, Protected Cropping Australia represents the industry in a national advocacy role.

Institute for Simplified Hydroponics

The Institute for Simplified Hydroponics’ mission is to support efforts to introduce simplified hydroponics to reduce hunger and poverty.

La Asociación Hidropónica Mexicana

La Asociación Hidropónica Mexicana se ha preocupado ya por varios años sobre la situación que vive el agro en nuestro país; llevando acabo esfuerzos por dar a conocer y fomentar el cultivo hidropónico en México.

Network Hidroponia

Research center of Hidroponía and Mineral Nutricio’n, Department of Biology, Agrarian National University the Molina, Lima, Peru.

Hydroponic Destinations

Achiltibuie Garden

And while you’re in the UK, overlooked by the mountains of Wester Ross, Achiltibuie Garden in Scotland has been established since the mid 1980’s and is now the premier hydroponics centre for the demonstration of soilless growing in the UK. Its spectacular growing houses produce extraordinary results.

CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa

The first of its kind in the world, CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa features a comprehensive hydroponic farm on the property. Vegetables currently harvested include tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, peppers, broccoli rabe, bok choy, arugula, watercress, green onions, and string beans. Herbs grown at the resort includ parsley, basil, chives, dill, chervil, thyme, sage, mint, oregano, and sweet marjoram.

Epcot Center – Living With The Land

A slow-paced 13-minute boat ride takes you on an educational journey through tropical rain forests, an African desert, as well a visit to a turn-of-the-century family farm. Guests explore the agricultural struggles of the past and plans for global food production in the future that includes hydroponics, aeroponics and aquaculture. It’s not just about growing fruits and veggies either, as entire fish farms are operational and on display. Since The Land is a Disney restaurant supplier, you could very well see part of your next Disney meal being grown. Ever wonder where those Mickey shaped cucumbers in your salad come from? This is the greenhouse where they are grown.

Sun Works Greenhouse Project

The Greenhouse Project science labs are equipped with hydroponic farming technology in order to provide hands-on, project-based environmental science education for K-12 grade students in urban schools.

Educational Hydroponic Websites

Gardening with Grodan

A most excellent educational website created and maintained by Grodan, manufacturers of the hydroponic growing media known as stonewool or rockwool. Lots of great information for teachers and students, as well as hobby growers!

Hydroponics as a Hobby

This circular was prepared by James C. Schmidt, Assistant Extension Horticulturist, John M.Gerber, Assistant Professor of Horticulture, and J. W. Courter, Professor of Horticulture, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, based on an earlier edition prepared by J. D. Butler
and N. F. Oebker.

Hydroponic Technical Websites

Controlled Environment Agriculture Center
University of Arizona

Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) is the production of plants and their products, such as vegetables and flowers, inside structures such as greenhouses. By using CEA, we can produce high value crops at maximum productivity in an efficient and environmentally friendly way. The University of Arizona’s Controlled Environment Agriculture Center (CEAC) supports education, research and outreach as part of the Department of Agricultural & Biosystems Engineering and the School of Plant Sciences – both programs of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. CEAC also offers an innovation platform for plant physiology, sensor technology and applied computer technology.

Growing Hydroponic Tomatoes
University of Arizona

This informative site grew from an 8 month demonstration project overseen by Dr. Merle Jensen and Dr. Pat Rorabaugh at the University of Arizona. Growing Tomatoes Hydroponically is an interactive web site that provides practical, accurate information on growing hydroponic tomatoes for students, hobbyists, and beginning growers. Hydroponic culture is one of the most exacting and intensive methods of crop production used in agriculture today. Over the last 20 years, great advances in hydroponic technology have been made through extensive research and development programs in the United States and Europe. And although hydroponics may be technology and capital intensive, it is also extremely productive and efficient in its water and land use. Whether your interest in hydroponics is as a hobby, an additional source of income, or you want to get into the commercial market, the future and opportunities in soilless culture are more favorable today than ever before. We hope this introduction to hydroponic tomato growing will spark your interest, provide information, and lead you other resources available in print and on the web.

Cornell Controlled Environment Agriculture
Cornell University

Controlled Environment Agriculture or CEA facilities can range from the very low-tech such as row covers and high/low plastic covered tunnels, to fully automated glass greenhouses with computer controls. There have even been some CEA facilities on the international space station where astronauts have grown leafy greens both to eat and to advance scientific knowledge. The Cornell CEA program has worked with many different types of CEA facilities through the years. We developed a greenhouse hydroponic production method geared toward local food production. A prototype facility was built in Ithaca in the late 1990’s and continues to function today producing more than 1000 heads of lettuce every day of the year. Cornell CEA continues to do research in the areas of supplemental lighting and commercial hydroponic vegetable production. Learn more about the Cornell CEA here.
