Though hydroponics is a relatively new growing method, its history is rooted in water-based horticulture.
For example, the mythical Hanging Gardens of Babylon supposedly irrigated its trees and shrubs with water channels.
And in 1100 AD, Mesoamericans created artificial islands called “chinampas” near modern-day Mexico City that are still in use today.
Modern hydroponics was developed in the late 1920s and tested as a source of fresh food for the U.S. Air Force during World War II. A few decades of technology improvement later, a fasmily can now grow their own hydroponic vegetables and herbs at home.
Paul, the owner and founder of Hydroponics Unlimited, started gardening outdoors in high school. His journey in indoor gardening began several years later in 1988.
“The first hydroponics store to open in the entire country wasn’t far from my home,” Paul said. “It was there I received my first lessons in hydroponics and bought everything I needed to start my own hydroponics system.”
Paul’s interest in hydroponics persisted for the next 18 years. With his friends’ encouragement, he opened Palmdale Hydroponics in 2006.
Paul was the sole employee of Palmdale Hydroponics until 2007, when his wife, Victoria, joined the company. In 2009, Paul and Victoria launched HydroponicsUnlimited.com. The online store allows them to reach out to customers all over the United States.
In 2010, the store moved to a larger location and changed its name to America’s Best Hydroponics and Garden Center.
Since then, America’s Best Hydroponics has provided thousands of products and the latest education to the local hydroponics community. Paul and his knowledgeable crew are ready to help beginner and veteran growers yield a successful crop.
America’s Best Hydroponics and Garden Center is located at 641 West Palmdale Blvd., Unit D in Palmdale.
