Hydroponic Gardening: 9 Plants You Can Easily Grow In Water Jars At Home

What do you need?

First of all, you need containers that don’t allow water to flow. It is very important to use resistant containers, and jars are the most appropriate in this case.

Then water. Avoid using chlorine or chemical water. Spring water is best suited for growing these plants because it contains the minerals they need.

Last but not least, the plants you will grow. You will see that if some freshly cut branches are enough, others need a plant already grown separately in the ground.

CAREFUL! For some of these plants, it takes time for them to adapt to the new environment and begin to grow. Normally, they begin to grow in a period that can last between 2-6 weeks.

Tomatoes
Place the already grown plants in individual supports with earth. Tomato seeds won’t grow in water.

Mint
Mint is one of the most appreciated medical plants. If you want fresh mint all the time, just put a cut mint twig in the water container. This doesn’t require any special attention.

Basil
Basil will love the warmth of your home and will grow harmoniously in the water as long as it has plenty of light. Our advice is to cut it before it starts to bloom, because this way you’ll prolong the life of your plants.

Thyme
If you want to grow thyme in water, make sure you have young thyme is young (it must be light green). Usually, old branches grow harder or even harder. You can do this between May and July, before the plant blooms. Once you cut the twig, put it in the water immediately, because it dries very quickly.

Rosemary
If the twig is timber it will last longer in its new environment. It’s advisable to cut the twig in spring because the young sapling it will grow faster during this season. All this work is worth it, because rosemary is a perfect plant to keep in the house.

Spinach
Spinach is among the most appreciated hydroponic crops among farmers. Seeds are planted in separated pots. When the plant is sufficiently developed, it is transferred to the water container.

Pepper
Just like tomatoes, use the already grown seedlings.

Cucumbers
We advise you to use bush cucumbers, not climbing cucumbers, because the latter are harder to maintain in water containers.

Celery
Celery seeds are first planted in separate glasses. When the plant is large enough, it can be moved into the jar with water. To grow celery without soil is already a bonus. That means that all the soil that is usually hidden among the leaves will no longer cause problems. Just rinse the leaves a little before eating them.
