The number of people now gardening indoors has grown significantly in the last few years—and many people are wondering if starting an indoor garden is the right thing to do. Phototron explains 5 reasons to consider indoor growing.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 18, 2012
Phototron Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: PHOT) (OTCQB: PHOT), the Los Angeles hydroponic grow box company that is leading the indoor mini-greenhouse revolution, is seeing rapid growth in the “grow your own” market. For those still on the fence about indoor growing, Phototron offers five important points to consider.
#1 Grow Year Round
Being able to control the climate is one of the greatest benefits of an indoor growing system. In addition to providing shelter from inclement weather, snow, frost, humidity and heat waves, gardeners can control the amount of daylight hours. This enables gardeners to grow ripe tomatoes in just 45 days from germination.
#2 Grow in Small Areas
Would-be gardeners with limited space, like apartments and condos, can still enjoy fresh homegrown fruits and vegetables by gardening indoors. All of the Phototron grow cabinets are only 21 inches wide and deep, so they take up less than 1 square foot of indoor floor space.
#3 Protected from Invaders
There is nothing worse to gardeners than going out to harvest their crops and finding that a gopher, rabbit, birds or worms literally ate their lunch. Or maybe their dog or children ran over or accidentally dug up the garden. Indoor growing in a protected grow cabinet prevents these types of situations.
#4 Guaranteed Natural
Store-bought tomatoes are often picked green and chemically induced to ripen, leaving them hard and tasteless. Personal indoor gardens eliminate the health risks associated with ripening chemicals and other contaminates like pesticides, E. coli and salmonella that are often found in store-bought produce. Indoor gardeners get the 100% of the available nutritional value because their fruits and veggies go directly from the plants to their plates.
#5 Water Efficiency
Farming consumes 70% of the water consumed on the planet, and most of it is wasted. In a Phototron indoor hydroponic system, water is conserved because it only uses 10% of the water typically used in an outdoor garden.
“For the past 20 years, we have enabled people to grow their own plants using our state-of-the-art indoor controlled-environment hydroponic grow systems, nutrients and supplies,” said Craig Ellins, Phototron’s CEO. “Phototrons are now seen as less of a luxury item, and more of a compulsory item, like a stove or refrigerator, in contemporary kitchens.”
