Summary and Info
It is apparent from reading the publication that Keith is a well read and very experienced gardener. Contained in How-To-Hydroponics is everything you will need to start your own garden whether it be a small spare closet garden or an outdoor plantation.The book begins by giving a brief overview of hydroponics and then discusses the needs of the plant and how the gardner should meet these needs. The topics in this area include how to maintain proper pH and temperature, lighting, oxygenation, humidity, and nutrition. The book even includes recipes for making your own nutrient solution for the more sophisticated gardners.Keith then gives blueprints for 3 affordable gardens than anyone can accomplish. The three gardens are "The Hydroponic Planter" : EXTREMELY easy and cheap. An idiot could build this one in a weekend!!! Perfect for beginners."The aeroponic Aerospring" : Offers the reader the chance to build a garden employing the most advanced technique known for growing. Aeroponics! Again, easy and cheap but will require slightly more mechanical ability. ie: measuring and fitting PVC piping on a very small scale. You can learn how to glue the pipes together by simply asking your Homedepot salesman. He will give you everything you need to do the job right."The PVC pipe hydroponic System(s)" : This system will allow the reader to build a system that will support as few as two plants to infinitum. Two size systems using 4 and 6 inch pipe are included. The skys the limit here. To build this system you will be required to make more precise cuts and a knowledge of the proper tools and fitting PVC piping is a definite plus.All of these systems are "doable" by beginners. This is the only book I have seen on the topic that can have you growing in only 2 days.It also includes lots of pictures and drawings to keep you on target. The pictures are black and white but suffice. If you are interested in color photos, the book is also avialable in pdf format from www.futuregarden.com at the same price.Good luck and enjoy!
