What is hydroponics?
Hydroponics is the practice of growing plants without soil. Instead, you add nutrients directly into the water supply. Liquid nutrients enable the plants to spend less time getting food from the soil and more time growing leavest.
Hydroponics is also an answer to two of the world’s growing concerns: diminishing soil quality, and water scarcity.
Also, food safety concerns attached to traditional agriculture, such as high pesticide use and metal contaminants in the soil, are significantly more manageable if not entirely erased in a hydroponics production system.

What can I grow in these ZipGrow™Towers?
– Please note: strawberries and other fruiting plants can take a lot of work and use different nutrient ratios than greens and herbs.
How many plants can I grow per tower?
Larger statured crops will require 6″ spacing while smaller statured crops will require 4″ spacing.
For most of the crops we grow in our ZipGrow™ Towers – largely nutrient dense greens and herbs – we stick to about a 4-6 inch spacing. This inch spacing helps us grow 8-10 basil plants in a single 5′ ZipGrow Tower. Many of our farmers have reported they are able to grow:
10-12 lettuce-sized plants per 5 foot tower and 16-20 lettuce sized plants per 8 foot tower.
Other types of plants will require more specific measurements:
Mint, for example, grows like a weed and spreads throughout the entire Tower. This differs from most of your greens like lettuce and kale that tend to grow more centralized and gain the majority of their weight in one spot. Chives can also be planted closely together therefore allowing you to grow a lot more plants per tower.
