We are avid hydroponic gardeners and researchers with a passion for finding, testing, and sharing the very best in hydroponic product innovation. While the core techniques utilized in hydroponic gardening date back thousands of years to ancient Chinese and Babylonian civilizations, interest in the technique has experienced a resurgence in recent years.
Along with the increase in interest, skilled gardeners, botanists, and entrepreneurs have been working tirelessly to innovate and design full hydroponic systems that maximize yield while cutting down on expensive inputs such as energy, space, and nutrients.
With combined backgrounds in botany, technology, and scientific research, we are uniquely positioned to provide cutting edge insights to hydroponic gardening beginners and veterans alike.
