We here at Foody know that we're certainly not the only company with a hydroponic system on the market. However, we believe that ours will get you the most bang for your buck. We'll take a look at a the Tower Garden and compare it to the Foody 12.
The first hydroponic system we will take a look at is the Tower Garden. The Tower Garden is similar to the Foody Tower in terms of looks and structure, but there are a few key differences. The first difference between the Foody 12 and the Tower Garden is the amount of plants you can grow. The Tower Garden has room for 20 plants, while the Foody 12 has room for 44 plants. This is because the growing spaces in the Foody 12 are closer together. This might lead you to believe that the Tower Garden is better for bigger plants that require more room. However, when growing larger plants in the Foody 12 tower, you can simply use every other net pot so the plants have plenty of room.
Another difference between the systems is the price. The Tower Garden is $525 plus $50 shipping. Included in this price is the tower, nutrients, a pH kit, 20 rockwool cubes, and seeds. The Foody 12 costs, if you include the hydroponic starter kit and plant starter plugs, $417.50 plus shipping (which is usually $40 to $60). You can also get a rotational motor for the Foody 12, which brings the cost to $462.50.
The Foody 12 and Tower Garden have a lot of similarities, but we think our tower has a slight edge in terms of both functionality and cost. We also have several variations of our Foody tower, which you can find here. I hope that this article has helped you understand the differences between the systems so you can make an informed purchase. If you've got any questions, be sure to contact us.
