Grow your own delicious food literally anywhere. In Home Hydroponics, hydroponic-growing pro Tyler Baras (aka Farmer Tyler) shows you how easy it is to build your own soilless growing systems to cultivate greens, veggies, herbs, and more.

And, to sweeten the deal even further, Tyler's designs are not just functional, they're also attractive. In fact, unlike the typical industrial designs of most DIY hydroponic systems, these projects fit beautifully into your living space, no matter its size or style.

The small-space hydroponics projects found here come with easy-to-follow, step-by-step plans for making growing systems that fit right into your home. No need to have a separate grow room or to tuck your plants into a corner of the basement. Turn a coffee table, kitchen cupboard, bathroom wall, bedside table, or windowsill into a wonder of hydroponic production with Tyler's project plans and DIY tutelage.

  • Turn a living room armoire into a food-growing machine
  • Build a hydroponic wall garden for the dining room
  • Convert a bar cart into a mobile hydroponics system
  • Grow scented herbs in a unique hanging unit
  • Fill a kitchen window with hydroponic suction cup planters
  • Cultivate your own food on a compact corner shelf in your bedroom

With hydroponics, you can grow productive plants anywhere, even in the total absence of natural sunlight. Home Hydroponics covers everything from crop selection and lighting to nutrient management and site selection. Turn almost any room in your home into a mini food farm with the resources and projects found here.

Notă biografică

Tyler Baras has a range of urban agricultural experience, from homesteading to commercial hydroponics. While completing his BS in Horticultural Sciences at the University of Florida, he traveled overseas to study Organic Agriculture in Spain and Protected Agriculture (greenhouse production) in China. After graduation, he worked as a grower for 3 Boys Farm Inc., the first certified organic recirculating hydroponic farm in the United States. In 2013, Tyler moved to Denver, Colorado, where he worked as the hydroponic farm manager at The GrowHaus. He managed a profitable urban farm while creating a successful hydroponic internship program with a 90% job placement rate for graduates. The hydroponic farm at The GrowHaus is currently managed by alumni of the farm internship program and continues to provide lettuce for Wholefoods, Safeway, and several local markets. While at The GrowHaus, Tyler started creating educational videos and blog posts about farm tech which he continues to post on his website FarmerTyler.com. He has had multiple appearances on P. Allen Smith's Garden Home, which airs on national PBS. Currently, Tyler manages the Dallas Grown hydroponic greenhouse in Dallas, Texas, and works as Special Projects Manager for Hort Americas.
