Veggie is up and running!
Astronauts on the International Space Station have begun the second trial of NASA's microgravity farm system by growing their own romaine lettuce. If all grows well, by next month they 'might' be able to eat some.
The original trial results were frozen and sent back to earth to ensure they were safe for human consumption. This second harvest will be half eaten and half returned to ensure no-one suffers food poisoning in space.

We think this is one of the most interesting hydroponic projects to date, there's nothing in earth like it!
Be sure to give our page a Like for more updates in the future!

We all love a juicy strawberry, but not all of us love to pick them......
With a simple hydroponic system, this chore can become a joy and can also help to prevent stiff backs! By having the plants on an adjustable racking, the height of the system can be adjusted to suit the fruit pickers.

Does your Digital Ballast interfere with your neighbours radios?

In another great video from Everest @Just4Growers, he explains how your ballast can interrupt AM radio signals, potentially notifying others of your grow room.

Rest assured, all our Adjusta-Watt ballasts have been tested and do not give off any interference.

Unless you've already seen this video, we can guarantee that this is a truly unique project that you may have never heard of!

How to grow strawberries at the bottom of the ocean; aptly named "Nemo's Garden".

The GrowWise City Farming Center is just one of the latest Urban Farms to utilize the ever efficient Philips GreenPower LED units. This research center will develop tailored ‘light growth recipes’ to ensure that each crop variety gets the best kind of light it requires to generate a high quality and yield.

These futuristic farms will one day provide food for thousands of city residents, so we think it's fantastic to see more serious research is being carried out by our industry giants!

Have you seen ‘The Two-Headed Dragon' by Artist/designer Alexis Tricoire?

Combining modern art and hydroponics, he's created an interesting and unusual botanic sculpture, literally dripping with plants and flowers.

It goes to show that hydroponics can be combined into our daily lives without being too intrusive!

On display in Paris, visitors to the City of Fashion and Design can see it through to September 20, 2015. If you find yourself in the city, go check it out!

If you haven't seen the impressive growth speed of CEA (Controlled Environment Agriculture) check out this series of pictures from the University of Arizona's CEAC, where they not only trial different growing conditions, they also research ultra-light growing systems that could be used for future space exploration missions.
