Yes, you can grow your own delicious food literally anywhere. In Home Hydroponics, “Farmer Tyler” shows you how easy it is to build your own soilless growing systems to cultivate greens, veggies, herbs, and more.
And, to sweeten the deal even further, Tyler’s designs are not just functional, they’re also attractive. In fact, unlike the typical industrial designs of most DIY hydroponic systems, these projects fit beautifully into your living space, no matter its size or style.
The small-space hydroponics projects found here come with easy-to-follow, step-by-step plans for making growing systems that fit right into your home. No need to have a separate grow room or to tuck your plants into a corner of the basement.
- Transform a living room armoire into a food-growing machine
- Build a hydroponic wall garden for the dining room
- Convert a bar cart into a mobile hydroponics system
- Grow scented herbs in a unique hanging unit
- Fill a kitchen window with hydroponic suction cup planters
- Cultivate your own food on a compact corner shelf in your bedroom
With hydroponics, you can grow productive plants anywhere, even in the total absence of natural sunlight. Home Hydroponics covers everything from crop selection and lighting to nutrient management and site selection. Convert almost any room in your home into a mini food farm with the resources and projects found here.

This books provides detailed information on the principals of hydroponics but also instructions on how to build your own hydroponic gardens for the home. Loved that the author provided crop suggestions as well as problems that could affect the crop due to the method used. Off to build a salad bowl garden now. Can't wait to see the results.
This book was so helpful for me! As an avid Hydroponic user, I've struggled with my more complicated veggies like tomatoes and beans. I appreciated the detail in how to test and balance my system to achieve better results and am hoping these small tweaks make a big difference in my set ups!
This book has extensive knowledge of how to grow plants in your home including some really well researched technical designs for making a wide array of different ways to grow things. It definitely is a book to take your time and really sink your teeth into before trying.
I received this book from the publishers via Netgalley for a review. A well written and easy to understand information on building and growing a hydroponic garden, I for one will be giving it a go.
