How to make a hydroponic crop: these are the keys to success

If you are one of those women who still does not know how to make a hydroponic crop at home, we want to tell you that it is something that you can do easily and that will surely bring great benefits to your health.

This technique, which is becoming more and more common in the world, is known as the «agriculture of the future». Part of its advantages have to do with the fact that its preparation is economical, it does not generate parasites or bacteria, it helps to know how to take care of the soil because it prevents erosion, and it does not need a large space to do so.

How to make a hydroponic culture at home

Here we are going to show you step by step how to start making your own crop without messing your head and in the easiest way you can imagine:


First, choose a container or a bucket, hopefully dark in color so that the light does not penetrate the roots and that measures about 30 cm. Make a hole in the base of the container and insert a rubber or plastic stopper, so you can change the water every time you need it. Now, take a drill and drill a wooden board (which must be the same size as the container), and insert the pot there, taking care that the spaces are equal between each hole. The number of holes will be proportional to the size of the table.


Through the holes you opened, insert the roots of the plant you want to plant, making sure that they are submerged in the water and that the stem is above the surface of the water. Take the substrate, add it to the container and secure the plant with it.


Put the container in a place that is ventilated and gets a good amount of sunlight. Look for an aerator pump (the kind used in fish tanks) that can oxygenate the water, and carry out this process every two or three hours a day. Don’t forget to add supplemental nutrients so the plant maintains the amount it requires to survive.

Care for the plants of a hydroponic culture

  • Change the water in the container about every 15 days, and recycle it to water other plants.
  • Give your plants spaces where they receive sunlight for their proper functioning.
  • Don’t forget to track the sowing, development and growth processes of each plant. In case you see that they are not working well, ask an expert for help to restore them.
