I live in Houston. I just built an outdoor hydroponics setup. I've tried growing basil in it, but I think it's too hot for that. I'm going to try tomatoes now, but I hear they're not very heat-tolerant either.

What things can I grow in hydroponics when it's 90+ degrees outside?

  • I'm not a hydroponic gardener, but have you evaluated peppers, artichokes, watermelon, okra, sunflowers, and such? With regard to tomatoes, is your information about heat with regard to tomatoes generally, or with regard to hydroponic tomatoes specifically? Jun 16, 2022 at 21:48
  • Also, have you considered cowpeas, peanuts, sweet potatoes, yardlong beans, and squash? Jun 16, 2022 at 22:00
