Go GrowOp and You Really Can Grow Tomatoes!

June 3, 2011

Up until now “Big Hydro” (yeah that’s our cute pet-name for the biggest of the hydroponic distributors) have kept a monopolistic thumb on the hydroponics industry, turning it into an elite specialty economically viable only to those growing expensive “produce”.  Their long reign of high priced equipment has literally weeded out many a conventional farmer.  At GrowOp we are aware of the many benefits to indoor agriculture on both a large and small scale.  From eliminating “food miles” to keeping GMO’s off your plate, we hate to see you miss out on a “Growing Opportunity”.  Therefore we’ve made it our mission to make hydroponics affordable for everyone, from the large-scale experts to the at-home novices.

While one could debate over the best method of agriculture for hours you can rest assured that growing your own food is an Eco no-brainer.  Economically and ecologically.  Zero “food miles” – check!  Non-GMO – check!  Not shopping at Whole Paycheck for decent organics – check!  Knowing exactly what your food has experienced from seed to harvest – that deserves way more than a check, I’m going to go with priceless.

Shame on you “Big Hydro” for turning hydroponics into a privilege reserved for wealthy home growers and cannabis farmers (yeah I said it – you got rich selling equipment to the cannabis farmers you pretend don’t exist).  At $1,000 for a single tent set up you would have to grow nearly 400 pounds of tomatoes before you can break even!  That’s a bit much for one tent, even if you do claim your equipment has magical yielding powers.  So say what you will “Big Hydro”, but you aren’t fooling anyone.

At GrowOp we like to consider that we offer our customers a “Growing Opportunity”.  GrowOp makes hydroponics so affordable it offers everyone the opportunity to have a home garden.  Whether you live in a barren desert or on the tip of an iceberg you can grow your own foods and herbs indoors hydroponically (as long as your iceberg gets electricity!).  A hydroponic set up takes some of the natural elements that aren’t plant friendly out of the garden, affording you the opportunity to throw together a fresh salad minutes after harvest…in the dead of winter.

Hydroponics can also be considered a way to Grow Optimally.  Plants aren’t exactly fans of variety.  Think about it, if you’re a stalk of celery variety to you means that one day its sunny and the next the ground can be frozen solid.  This isn’t the optimal environment in which your delicate plants want to thrive.  Hydroponics takes a plant’s unpleasantries out of growing – whether that means bad weather or a swarm of nasty pests that just flew in off your neighbor’s hydrangea.  By taking your garden indoors and controlling its environment your plants get to live an almost utopian existence – sounds like Eden!

At GrowOp we also want you to be able to Grow with Options.  Perhaps you are a “Locavore” who likes to hop into your hybrid to shop the farmers market for some tasty non-GMO foods.  Imagine if you could eliminate the hopping, shopping, and hybrid (as cool as they are they still use fossil fuels!) and all you have to do is step out to your tent set-up in the garage and harvest your own dinner?  It doesn’t get any “Greener” than that.  I assure you your friends and neighbors will be green with envy that you were the first to put a garden in your garage.

So now you know – Big Hydro has been keeping you from fulfilling your destiny – to grow your own produce indoors!  Well its time for all growers to unite – there are more than a few great reasons for you to Go Hydro.  And remember, Go GrowOp and you really can grow tomatoes!
