When visiting a Hydroponics Superstore, it is often tempting to grab as many items as you can in order to stock up on the things that can get your hydroponics farm going. When you see trays upon stack of trays that may become handy when your culture has extensively grown from its humble beginnings, it gets your juices flowing and urges you to buy as many items as you can. However, impulse buying may not be the best thing that you can do at a hydroponics store.

When you think about it, one of the most important hallmarks of hydroponics as a plant-growing method is that it is a cost-effective way of growing plants. This is made possible by the fact that you do not need to buy any fertilizer, keep the growing space to a minimum without sacrificing its size, and even use many homemade items to sustain your farm.

At a hydroponics store, it makes sense to buy only the essential items and not everything that you will find on store shelves. The essential are items that you cannot make on your own or things that would greatly improve the efficiency of your culture if selected over recycled materials.

For example:

  • Growing containers for young shoots. Using plastic food containers is a common strategy in hydroponics but for young shoots that are still at the developing stage, better-designed growing trays may be ideal. You can then use recycled food containers for bigger plants that have well developed root systems.
  • Nutrient solution. You can make one on your own but why risk it? The formulation for nutrient solutions in hydroponics is important to plant growth so buying one at a hydroponics store is recommended.
  • Pumps specifically designed for continuous hydroponics systems. Pumps are very important to the success of a growing culture especially in continuous-growing systems so invest in a quality pump that will last for some years.

Always think it through before making any purchase at a hydroponics store. You want to be able to save up on money while maximizing your mini-farm so be innovative in mixing your reused and brand new items to give your hydroponics culture the best chance for success.
