Hydroponics Basics

Tips and Basic Information to get you started on your Hydroponics Journey.

Hydroponics is a method of growing plants in a water based, nutrient mixed solution. Hydroponics does not use soil, instead the root system is supported using an artificial medium such as perlite, rockwool, clay pellets, peat moss, or vermiculite. The basic idea behind hydroponics is to allow the plants roots to come in direct contact with the nutrient solution, while also having access to oxygen, which is essential for proper growth.

At Bundaberg Hydroponics and Aquaponics we highly recommend to invest sufficient time learning as much as you can about hydroponics before starting your own garden.

Hydroponics is an excellent choice for all types of growers. It is a great choice because it gives you the ability to meticulously control the variables that effect how well your plants grow. A fine tuned hydroponic system can easily surpass a soil based system in plant quality and amount of produce yielded.

Growing with hydroponics comes with many advantages, the biggest of which is a greatly increased rate of growth in your plants. With the proper setup, your plants will mature up to 25% faster and produce up to 30% more than the same plants grown in soil.

Your plants will grow bigger and faster because they do not have to work as hard to obtain nutrients. Even a smaller root system will provide the plant exactly what it needs, so the plant will focus more on growing upstairs instead of expanding the root system downstairs.

All of this is possible through careful control of your nutrient solution and pH levels. A hydroponic system will also use less water than soil based plants because the system is enclosed, which results in less evaporation. Believe it or not, hydroponics is better for the environment because it reduces waste and pollution from soil runoff.


Bundaberg Hydroponics & Aquaponics highly recommends changing the nutrient solution at least every two to three weeks.

Keeping the water temperature in your reservoir between 65 and 75 degrees assures best results. You can maintain the water temperature by using a water heater or a water chiller.

An air pump with an air stone connected by flexible tubing can help increase circulation and keep your nutrient solution oxygenated.

If your plant doesn’t look healthy, either discolored or distorted, then the first thing you should check and adjust is the pH. If you determine that the pH is not the problem then flush your system.

Flush, clean, and sterilize your entire system after you finish a growing cycle. Drain your reservoir and remove any debris, then run your entire system for about a day with a mix of non-chlorine bleach and water. Use 1/8th of a cup of non-chlorine bleach for every gallon of water. Then drain your system and flush it thoroughly with clean water to remove any excess bleach.
