FAQ - Frequently asked question

  • What is hydroponic cultivation? Answer: Hydroponic cultivation is a method where plants are grown without traditional soil; instead, they are cultivated in a water-based nutrient solution system that provides them with all the necessary nutrients.

  • What are the advantages of hydroponic cultivation compared to traditional cultivation? Answer: Hydroponic cultivation yields higher crops in less space, reduces water consumption, and enables year-round cultivation regardless of climate and season.

  • How does a hydroponic skystack work? Answer: A hydroponic skystack is a vertical cultivation system where plants are grown in stacked layers without soil. Water and nutrient solution circulate through the system to provide optimal nutrition to the plants.

  • What can be grown in a hydroponic skystack? Answer: In a hydroponic skystack, various vegetables, herbs, and flowers can be grown, such as lettuce, tomatoes, basil, spinach, and much more.

  • What type of lighting is needed for indoor hydroponic cultivation? Answer: To grow hydroponically indoors, LED lighting with a full spectrum is usually needed to provide the plants with the light they require for growth and thriving.

  • How often should the nutrient solution be changed in a hydroponic skystack? Answer: The water is changed as it is topped up. As the plants grow larger, more nutrient solution is required. This is evident when checking the pH in the water. Lower pH means less nutrition in the water.

  • Is it necessary to use pesticides in hydroponic cultivation? Answer: Pesticides are usually not used in hydroponic cultivation, as there is no soil for pests to thrive.

  • Can hydroponic cultivation be organic? Answer: Yes, it is possible to practice organic hydroponic cultivation by using organic nutrient solutions and natural methods of pest control.

  • How much space do I need to grow with a hydroponic skystack? Answer: A hydroponic skystack takes up a minimum of 27 x 27 cm and can be placed in a corner or on a balcony.

  • How can I get started with hydroponic cultivation? Answer: To get started with hydroponic cultivation, you need a skystack or a hydroponic system, seeds or seedlings, nutrient solution, and lighting. There are many guides and videos online that can help you get started!
