Hobby Hydroponics is an overview and evaluation of various indoor commercially available hydroponic units. The objective is to inform the reader of the growing aspects of hydroponics at the home level. This includes some of the cultural practices to care for your plants indoors and how to provide them with adequate light, temperatures, etc. to obtain productive plants. The book also describes the types of crops specific hydroponic hobby units are best suited for. Dr. Resh understands that there are many hobby units available on the market and that at times it is difficult for a hobbyist to decide on what may be the best system for the crops he may wish to grow. General price ranges for these units are included to help you determine which systems best suit your budget. By no means does Dr. Resh indicate that these are the only units available; Hobby Hydroponics is a guide to some of the representative systems available.
The book explains how you can easily get started growing your plants; what conditions are suitable for growing indoors; how to care for your plants; essential plant nutrients; the best hobby units to fit your budget; and where to find the latest hydroponic supplies and information.
