Book Description

This book was written to explain the Kratky method of hydroponics. The Kratky method refers to growing plants in a nutrient solution as you would in hydroponics however you do not use an air stone and the roots are mostly submerged at all times in the solution. This method is possible with many different plants and works very well for growth.

2.0 out of 5 stars Simplistic June 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was hoping for more here. What I got was a very simplistic overview and little in the way of details. At least I didn't have to pay for it. Looks easy though...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good basic information October 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the book in a small way, it was explained very basically.
The problem that I have with this book is if your going to publish it, please check fir spelling and grammatical errors. This made it a little harder for me to understand some of the instructions.

4.0 out of 5 stars seems pretty informative June 24, 2013

I got this for free this morning. It is more of a pamphlet than a book.

It has a fair number of writing errors, but the content seems solid.

I have not tried his growing method, but it seems like a much simpler and cheaper system than the more elaborate hydroponic systems that rely on electricity to keep them going.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Simple Introduction November 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked up this book after the author left some reviews on several books that I have written and I wanted to see some of his work. I live in an area where land is extremely expensive and we are gardening on the roof of our home. Hydroponics sounds very interesting and I had only a basic knowledge of how it works. Because of our rolling blackouts, leaving us less than 2 hours of power per day in winter, the "no power" aspect also has a bit of appeal.

The author offers up his experiences with hydroponics and concludes the book with step-by-step instructions for a DIY hydroponics planter with plenty of illustrating photographs. I do wish that there were some more illustrations in the early part of the book while the overall process was being explained.

While the basic advice given in this book doesn't require power, the author still spent some time discussing lights that he couldn't recommend because of their power consumption.

This book does have a number of spelling and grammar errors. This particularly annoys me as an author, especially when I know how easy it is to make corrections and re-upload. If these sorts of things bother you, you might move on to another book...

The book is a good introduction to simple hydroponics and I don't think there is any other book quite like it in this price range. I came away from reading it with a slightly better idea of what it would take to do some of our own. Overall, if you are curious about the subject and only want to spend $3 pick up this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Off the Grid Hyrodponics. August 27, 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Found this book delightful to read and useful as an economical hydroponic system. The plants have not grown much but they have not died and with containers of fish and a pond, I have lots of fish water to provide the plants.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great ideas June 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This little ebook contained some great ideas, which I will definitely implement. The only downside to the book is it really needed to be proofread and spell checked.

I expected more info. I have gotten more for free from Internet blogs. And the blogs were infinitely more readable. This thing literally had errors in every paragraph.

The book offers basic information on how to do a low cost hydroponics system. More like a brochure or pamphlet.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was looking for
This book wasn't what I was looking for, a little to advanced for me. It contained a lot of useful information for those serious about hydroponics.

3.0 out of 5 stars Brief
This book should be used as a supplemental pamphlet to more complete references. I have never grown in hydroponics and would not be able to do so using only this reference.

3.0 out of 5 stars interesting concept but do you know a proof reader?
The book contains so many grammatical errors it was hard to read. It was an interesting concept she covers though.
