Tomatoes thrive when grown hydroponically. Of course, they need to have a support system with this type of setting just as they do in a traditional garden setting. Some varieties grow larger than other ones though, so choose the type you think you can provide the best support for in your particular setup. Some other vining veggies that need support include peas, cucumbers and pole beans.




Various types of lettuce will provide you with more flavorful harvests. Some people only think of iceberg variety when lettuce is mentioned, but there is romaine, sweet butter and many more to choose from for growing your salad greens hydroponically.


Cabbage is one of the cool weather vegetables that does well in hydroponics. You may need to adjust growing conditions for the cool weather vegetables.

Bush-style green beans will adjust quite well with the typical conditions set up in a hydroponic system. You will be able to harvest plenty for your table and have additional beans to can or freeze. The size of these is easier to deal with than the pole beans, even though with the right support, as mentioned earlier, you can also grow pole beans.







Beets are a cool weather crop, Air Temperatures of 60-65 F during their active growing periods is best. Edible root, tuber, and bulb crops incorporate a wide range of plants, the most familiar being potato, sweet potato, onions, shallots, garlic, carrots, parsnips, radish, turnip, and beets. While some of these plants are too large for the average indoor garden many others are well-suited to thrive under hydroponic nutrition. The simplest crops to begin with are the baby gourmet versions of carrots, turnips, radish, and beets.





Broccoli is also a cool weather crop so be sure to plant them during the appropriate time of year or make adjustments to your greenhouse. This is a large plant so we recommend using a single bucket for each plant.
