Lettuce, basil, kale, and other leafy vegetables are some of the fastest and easiest crops for home gardeners to grow. Hydroponic systems enable gardeners to grow leafy crops in small spaces quite efficiently. This publication provides an overview of hydroponic systems for growing lettuce and other leafy crops. It provides an introduction to nutrient film technique (NFT) and floating bed (or deep water culture) systems. It also provides information on managing nutrients and pH in your growing solution. This is the second in a series of three new publications from the UT and UF Extension.
