Hi, my name is Jason Bagnell. I became interested in growing hydroponically after becoming fed-up with paying high prices for organic produce at Whole Foods. My wife has been on a strict diet and she currently eats organic green leaf lettuce several times every day. She also eats cilantro, basil and other plants that can easily be grown in a small amount of space in a spare bedroom of our house.
While researching how to grow my own vegetables, I came across a very intriguing method that caught my interests. I discovered that growing hydroponically is very easy to do and it can be done completely indoors! That led me to learn more and I tried out a few of the methods I found online. I came up with my own proven method that I now regularly use to grow my own hydroponic plants indoors, such as: lettuce, chard, cilantro, basil and more.
Purpose of this website
The purpose of this website is to introduce indoor hydroponics to the public and to get people excited about being able to grow their own hydroponic plants inside their homes. I want to freely share what I’ve learned after experimenting with various indoor hydroponic growing methods. My original goal was to find an easy way to grow some of the foods that my wife and I eat, while keeping the amount of work to a minimum.
Tending a full time garden sounded like a lot of work but simply adding some nutrient solution to jars every so often sounded like a dream come true. I also wanted to learn how to successfully grow plants starting from a tiny seed. Watching the plants become healthy, huge and beautiful is very rewarding!
I spend my workdays running my computer networking and repair business (JB Computer Services, Inc., www.jbyte.com) but I enjoy being able to get away from the electronic world to dive into my hobbies whenever I can. Some of my hobbies are: hydroponic gardening (of course!), fishing, photography, playing the piano, driving high performance cars, hiking, kayaking, water skiing, jet skiing, scuba diving and almost everything else that ends in “ing”. 🙂
