Winter fun – small hydroponic system in a plastic container

Winters in Sweden are long, cold and dark… And in our family of growers, hydroponics is something that keeps our growing fingers busy. All you need is a plastic container, a seed or small plant, a growing light, hydroponic nutrition and water. This is a great method for planting indoor salads, leafy cabbage or green herbs, such as basil or coriander. If you have an aquarium it’s even better: the water in the aquarium feed your plants! You can build a growing light and growing structure on top of the aquarium and let the roots grow down in the water, giving your fish equal nutrition and hiding places.
