Hydroponics is an increasingly popular method of growing plants since it does not require soil. The plants are placed in a nutrient rich solution and grow in a ‘suspended’ state. A grow room is any room that is designated for growing plants. A hydroponic grow room is therefore designated to grow plants with no soil while at the same time providing the ideal conditions for plant growth.
Hydroponic grow rooms are easy to setup since there are very many conventional designs that can be followed. With the availability of grow kits that cater for novices in the field, almost anyone can set up a grow room. The resources available on the Internet have also made grow room construction easy.
A hydroponic grow room, regardless of its design, should meet the basic requirements needed for hydroponic gardening. Lighting, temperature, humidity and ventilation should be addressed. Lighting can be gotten from direct sunlight or from special lighting fixtures that mimic the effect of the sun in case direct sunlight is not possible. Care should be taken so that heat inside the grow rooms does not become excessive. This is because grow rooms work the same way as greenhouses. Fans should be setup to deal with this. Fans and thermostats also take care of air and ventilation requirements.
Nutrients and oxygen are also of the essence. Hydroponic grow room solutions complete with oxygen and nutrients are readily available, so this should not be any trouble for anyone looking for it. Simply mix with water and you are good to go.
There are several advantages for working with grow rooms. The plants are less prone to diseases since pests and birds are prevented from accessing the controlled environment. Secondly, the impact on the ecosystem is reduced since water and nutrients are controlled. Thirdly, plants grown in a hydroponic grow room are of higher quality in terms of color, size and taste when compared to plants grown through traditional conventional methods. This is because they are provided with all the ideal conditions.
