FAQs

Do I need a green thumb to grow hydroponically?

Anyone can grow food hydroponics. The innovative systems we represent are the simplest and cleanest ways to grow. The Flex Farm is the best system for those new to growing from seed. Everything you need to grow comes with the farm as well as step by step instructions for how to sow seed, harvest, and everything in between. Designed with the K-12 audience in mind the Flex Farm can easily and literally teach a child how to grow. Many who have had poor track records in growing outdoors have found that growing indoors restores their confidence and self esteem in providing the freshest food possible.

Can hydroponics be grown organically?

Yes, in most cases, growing indoors eliminates the need to use pesticides and fungicides. There are no weeds, so no need for herbicides. Where growing organically becomes a challenge is the nutrition. Historically the nutrition used for hydro and aeroponics came from fish – thus the term aquaponics. By utilizing a small fish farm, many could grow food in hydroponics organically. But this presented many challenges that made the barrier to raising food organically unreachably high. Further, commercial organic fertilizers were animal based posing challenges with odor control and adequate water flow through small nozzles, among other things. However, here at Eco, we were not satisfied with the status quo, and we are happy to announce that we have sourced the only non-animal based organic fertilizers complete with micronutrients so that you are now empowered to grow completely organically.

How do Schools use hydroponics to teach?

Educators have found the technologies we offer to be engaging cross-curricular learning tools that go well beyond the expected STEM and health-oriented applications. The robust, turnkey curriculum package offers hands-on, cross-curricular learning opportunities for grades K–12. Students learn while growing high-quality, nutritious produce. Fresh, student-grown crops can be used in school food programs, donated to local food pantries, and incorporated into micro-enterprise and fundraising projects.
