Hi! I'm Jeree Harms The Hydro Guy! If you want to learn how to grow your indoor house plants in the most efficient carefree method, you are in the right place! We want to help you learn and your plants to thrive!
Twenty five years ago I began experimenting with hydroponics by growing indoor plants with a system we found in Europe. At that time we were growing large plants and trees at our nursery in south Florida for our corporate and commerical accounts (all in soil of course).
As with any new growing method, we had our successes and failures. But I have to tell you, growing indoor plants in that hydroponic system quickly became one of our biggest successes!
In 1998 we opened greenhouses in New Jersey. From that point on, all of our plants were grown hydroponically - from that same hydroponic system we found in Europe 20 years ago.
Today, we operate an interior plant business in New Jersey that maintains plants in hotels and corporate offices throughout the metropolitan area.
We're not a flashy marketing company that sells plants (grown by other people) as a way to make money. We're plant people who have been working in this industry since the 1970's.
Our company has worked in the real world (like your home or office) for many years. We know a lot about what works and what doesn't.
Everything that you find on our website comes from these experiences. We use and recommend all of the products we offer. The information and illustrations are from the work we've done.
Our goal is to help you become the most successful grower you can be. We're excited about the possibilities of hydroponics and how it can help you grow better plants with less work.
In 1973 I quit my job with AT&T and opened a tropical plant store in Chicago. My family thought I was nuts!
The store quickly became successful. Within a couple of years the company grew into a thriving interiorscape company, leasing and maintaining plants in hotels, corporate offices, and shopping malls. At that time all the plants where growing in soil.
In 1991, at an industry trade show in Florida, I was introduced to growing plants hydroponically by an enthusiastic entrepreneur from New Jersey. After experimenting with this new hydroponic system I was quickly sold on the idea of growing plants without soil.
I sold my business in Chicago and moved to New Jersey. At the same time I started a hydroponic plant nursery in Florida. As they say, the rest is history. Oh, and by the way, that enthusiastic entrepreneur is now my wife.
