My suggestion to you would be to start growing a vegetable in cocopeat vermicompost mix and a regular dose of NPK water soluble. Get a hang of it and you will slowly make your way into hydroponics. Any questions you have, you can post it here. Check the local fertilizer shop for NPK water soluble fertilizers.

Just NPK is enough for cocopeat/compost? what is the best veggie to be grown in this method

Hi Charles,

 

Yes, it does work well. Use a mild solution. Start with Tomato or Spinach.

Not really. You would need other micro and macro nutrients too. You can supplement the NPK with foliar spray if required. The easiest to grow would be Spinach and probably radish too. My fovourite is Brinjal due to the longivity of the plant as opposed to say Tomatoes. Spinach and Radish provide near instant gratification with noticeable yields starting around 40 days.
