Which Plants Can You Grow with Hydroponics?

Our customers often ask us which plants can you grow hydroponically. The answer to this question is very simple: you can grow a variety of flowers, vegetables, a wide range of herbs and other plants. The exception is mushrooms. We have collected some examples for you listed below.


Growing flowers in hydroponics is a fairly simple and very beautiful thing to do. Inflorescences are often formed more than with traditional cultivation, and your flower seedlings can be grown all year round. Most flowers grow well in hydroponic installations, and when the plants reach the desired size, they can be simply cut or transplanted.


Many herbs grow well in hydroponic environments, for example, anise, basil, catnip, chamomile, chervil, chives, cilantro, coriander, dill, fennel, lavender, marjoram, mint, oregano, parsley, rosemary, sage, tarragon, and thyme.


Onions are a family of plants. Crops like these take up little space and are constantly producing and supplying you and your family with vegetables for salads and main dishes. Plants of this type are very hardy, thrive in a wide variety of conditions, and are easy to cultivate.


Many types of vegetables are also easy to grow in a hydroponic garden, such as artichokes, legumes, lettuce, squash, beets, broccoli, spinach, asparagus, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and beans. Plants that are commonly grown underground, such as onions, leeks, carrots, parsnips, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and radishes, also thrive when grown hydroponically, but require extra care. Crops such as corn, zucchini, some types of squash and various plants that grow in vines can also be grown hydroponically, but they use space inefficiently and also dominate other plants, taking away all resources. It is better to spend your efforts and resources on agricultural plants that grow better and more conveniently in hydroponic conditions.


Fruits can be grown hydroponically and include tomatoes, melons, grapes, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and strawberries. If you have the right resources, many fruit trees also do great hydroponics garden.

Other berries can also be grown hydroponically, but usually require much more space, which not all growers have.
