Blogger dives into the world of grow lights

With thousands of followers and fans, bloggers and vloggers have become the stars of this generation. The first YouTube stars gained thousands of followers thanks to videos in which they shared pranks or their musical talents, but lately we also see more educators and tutors of new trends and technologies among the growing group of vloggers and bloggers. Also in regards to gardening, urban and vertical farming there are a bunch of interesting online portals out there that you should keep an eye on.

With his Epic Gardening blog for example, San Diego-based gardening enthusiast Kevin Espiritu is literally sharing his 'growing pains' with a loyal group of readers who are, just like him, crazy about growing their own food. His blog is updated daily with very informative articles that help the beginning and more experienced home gardener take their growth to the next level.

Espiritu, a former commercial microgreens grower, writes about the basics of growing popular crops like leafy greens and culinary herbs year-round in aquaponic and hydroponic settings. He also offers troubleshooting articles about other crops, houseplants and shares his experience with plant diseases and conquering the most common pests. The blog features many helpful videos from his Epic Gardening YouTube channel and Espiritu even offers complete online guides that can transform anyone into a successful allround home gardener.

The Epic Gardening blog is also interesting for those who are looking to invest in hydroponic or aquaponic systems, as Espiritu has many reviews available, especially of the basic technology one requires to start his own gardening adventure or build his own indoor herb garden.

Especially Epic Gardening's extensive article on indoor grow lights is an interesting piece to read. In this blog, Espiritu provides a continuously updated and comprehensive overview of indoor grow lights and the available possibilities for the starting farmer.

"Part of the reason I started Epic Gardening was to make sure that growers everywhere had the most up to date information possible. It seems like things change constantly, especially when it comes to indoor grow lights", said Espiritu. "This is why I wrote a piece that I consider to be the most comprehensive high level overview of the topic online."
