Who am I?
Hi my name is Phil Stanton.
I am a 50 something looking to show you something I think will be huge in the near future. I am a retired aerospace engineer who now fills his time blogging and growing, both his knowledge and his plants.
I have been involved in the world of hydroponics for about 10 years.
Why Does This Site Exist?
I have started this site to show you about the fascinating world of hydroponics.
Imagine being able to grow a plant anywhere – except completely underwater and in the dark!! ok – some exceptions. But imagine being able to grow a plant on the living room wall. With this site you will be able to use the techniques to determine where and how to grow your plants.
How Did it Start?
I have always been interested in growing plants but disliked the kneeling, weeding and other jobs you have to carry out in a normal garden.
The passion for hydroponics started when a friend asked me about it one day. Knowing nothing about it I did some research on the web and found that instead of getting dirty in the garden there was another way.
After the research I looked around at the kits available . I couldn’t justify them at the time. I started to build my own simple systems and had great success growing tomatoes and lettuce – imagine eating lettuce you have grown on christmas day !!
Where are we Going on This Journey?
Within this site you will find the basics of what a plant needs to survive.
- You will find systems made up of easy to find parts.
- You will find practical knowledge to sort out problems.
