In all honesty this should have been a free book. The explanations of the operation of systems are fine, but the author really just barely touches on the details of them. It seems like with a bit more effort this would have been really helpful. There are numerous misspellings and sentences that don't make sense, there is nowhere near enough information or diagrams to effectively build a couple of the more involved DIY setups and I finished the book with some very basic questions left unanswered. For example, how deep do you plant your starters? Should the roots touch the water? How high should your light be away from your herbs? I guess it's fine if you just want an idea of what hydroponics are all about, but the title "Complete Hydroponic" is very, VERY misleading. Save your time and money and look for your answers on Google for free. Nothing groundbreaking in here.
I'm happy with this book. Plenty of detail for me to start growing virtually any plant anywhere by growing my plants in a nutrient-rich solution, rather than in soil, and under controlled conditions of light, temperature, and humidity. (Hydroponics) Also often called aquaculture.Many people are like me and haven't the space for an outdoor traditional garden, or the conditions are not right for outdoor gardening. (To hot/cold or to dry/wet)I used this book to start my garden in my spare room and it's a pleasure tending my plants each day.All in all a well written guide with easy to understand how-to info. I would recommend this book to those thinking of hydroponic gardening.
I've been curious about different types of gardening for quite some time. A friend of mine (a hardcore vegan) was recently talking about hydroponic gardening, so when I saw this book I thought it would be worth reading. The price was reasonable and I was hoping it would contain the basic information I would need if I wanted to give this particular type of gardening a try.Prior to reading this book (and hearing my friend mention it in passing) the most information I'd received about hydroponic gardening was from random passages in Heinlein science fiction. This book made hydroponics seem less daunting and more like something that was actually possible to set up on my own. The instructions were clear and the diagrams/pictures were easy to follow. The book DOES address some of the disadvantages of this type of gardening right from the start so you can decide if it's worth your time before you run out and buy supplies. Also, the author offers plenty of troubleshooting advice to help you if you run into problems or need to identify reasons why your fruits/veggies aren't growing the way you hoped.I do plan to try at least the deep water culture system for some herbs or small vegetables. If it works out I will try some of the other systems outlined. I'm not the most DIY type of woman, but with the instructions and pictures provided by the author I think I can manage. Plus, a trip to an Atlanta hydroponics store already showed me that the DIY methods in this book will save me a LOT of money. With that in mind, I recommend this book to anyone ready to try hydroponic gardening without being forced to spend a lot of money.
A bit short, more pictures would have been a nice feature. I liked the topics, the price was right .
I have never been able to grow anything with traditional gardening methods and I was starting to accept the fact that maybe I just wasn't good with any plants at all. I had heard about hydroponic gardening and how much easier it is to grow almost anything, so I gave it a try and this book has really explained a lot to me and given me some very good advice that I was able to use and have success the first time out. I originally bought this as a paperback book when I grew my hydroponic tomatoes and liked it so much that I bought the e-book version so I can have it handy when I start my strawberries and herb garden. I am having so much success with hydroponics that I think I can grow almost anything now!I thought that the book was well written and the pictures were helpful in showing me how to get the best results from what little space I had. If you are looking for a source of information that you can depend on, this is the book for you. Hydroponics is the best way for me to grow vegetables and herbs and this book makes it easy!
This book sucks, not professionally written, didn't learn anything, terrible quality of pictures didn't even know what I was looking at. Waste of time and money.
Less technical than I'd hoped. It exposes the reader to the different methods of hydroponic gardening, but does not cover the specifics of how each should be applied to strawberries as the name would imply. I was seeking more data for my gravity pipe system, pump run times, recommended slopes or speed of water/fertilizer, etc.This book will give you a very basic overview of hydroponics, but far from "complete" as the name suggests.
This little eBook is packed with quite a lot of information, and for the price you really do get a lot of bang for your buck. For those interested in creating a hydroponics system in their home, it has several easy to follow DIY projects to get you going. There is also a helpful section on choosing the best lighting for your project.I did grow hydroponic strawberries for my FFA project in high school, so I already had a little bit of knowledge going into reading this book, however I found that there were still many helpful and useful tips and suggestions. A lot has changed since the mid 90’s when we weren't really sure if LED lighting was going to be a thing or not, lol. This book has made me consider starting a project of my own. I live in Wyoming and our two inches of top soil and 67 day growing season really put a damper on having a garden.All in all, this is a pretty helpful eBook. You will get the basics of building and growing with a hydroponic system, and it will point you in the right direction to find more detailed information.
