What Plants Can You Grow in a Hydroponic Growing Tower?
Hydroponic Garden Towers are a practical, and easy way to grow vegetables in your home. And there are so many vegetables and fruits that you can choose to grow, but what if you have limited space? Well, then a Hydroponic Growing Tower may be the most feasible way to create your garden. And for me, lettuce and herbs are usually my favorite plants that I want to focus on when getting started with a vertical growing tower.
Growing Tower Materials and Step by Step Instructions
When you start your research, you will see that there are many Hydroponic Growing Tower kits that you can purchase online or from a local Hydroponics dealer. These kits will have all of the equipment necessary to assemble your tower and will usually also include instructions on what plants or veggies are best to grow for optimal results.

This is a great DIY project that won’t cost a fortune and can be done in a weekend. Most of the supplies can be found in your local hardware store. Home Depot has a good selection of PVC pipes, and there are many online options for ready-made kits.
If you choose to, you can build your own Growing Tower at home. This can become a fun-filled and practical family weekend project that is relatively inexpensive and is easy to build. Just make sure to take all pertinent safety precautions and that there is always adult supervision when children are involved.

Hydroponic Growing Tower Vegetables
So what vegetables are the best to grow in your vertical tower? Thankfully there are many delicious fruits and vegetables that can be grown in your new growing tower. And you will have plenty to choose from. Among the most popular you will find the following:
- Brussel Sprouts
These plants will grow well in your tower. Just remember, the roots will be in a dark enclosure inside the PVC pipe and the plants in the tower will need to be placed in a well-lit location. If possible, they should have sunlight for 8-10 hours under ideal conditions. But if that isn’t possible then you can use artificial lighting.

With your Hydroponic Grow Tower, your garden will yield more abundant produce in a shorter time frame and the benefit to you is that you can grow and harvest your fruits and vegetables year-round. So now you know, you can have great tasting veggies all year, regardless of where you live.
These Vertical towers will amaze you. They are very efficient and use minimal space and less water than a conventional garden but the results they produce are truly dramatic. Also because there is no soil involved, there will be less mess and pests to worry about. Another great benefit is that you won’t need pesticides. Your kit will use water and nutrients for your healthy plants.
