hydroponic planting

since i saw some advertisements on tv on hydroponic planting, i have tried to searched for more info. i want to do it at my balcony, to have some home grown vegetables..

for those not knowing what is hydroponic planting, hydroponic is a way to plant, without soil, just a casing, water and some minerals.

there are not many info after i goggled. so i tried look out at some plants nursery. apparently, hydroponic is not very popular yet in malaysia.

so, if you know anything about hydroponic, or you know where to get the utensils and materials for hydroponic in Malaysia, especially in KL, do provide me some info about it.

thanks..🙂

    This company sells a passive (gravity fed) hydroponic system and other products including a two part nutrient, which I guess you could use with a DIY system:

    You should check on the average number of direct sunlight hours that your balcony receives as this will effect which types of vegetables you could grow there.

    For a relatively quick harvest you could grow leafy vegetables like ´A´ Choy but check with a local seed company to find out which types of leafy veg (and other veg) are most suited to your balcony´s conditions.

    i know this is an old post and i’m not sure if you’re still interested after two years but i currently grow pak choi hydroponically and import hydroponic nutrients from America via mail order, if your interested in how to build one cheaply (my 4 plant system cost aprox 150RM to build) and i can place an additional order for you if you want. gravity fed if fine but will never grow much faster than soil, my system is drip fed.

    My company is launching a continuous nutrient recirculation hydroponic system in September 2012. This set is very practical. It can lean on the wall or stand on its own like racks in magazine stalls selling gift wrappers. We also have liquid fertilizer for sale. There will be different formula for different vegetables and flowers. Yes you can grow flowers particularly petunia in a hydroponic system.

    If you like to more details, kindly contact me at jimmytan@bgrw.com
