We stopped in to see what the shop was all about, and found out the following:
- They offer everything you would need in order to get started growing plants and veggies in your apartment -- including expert advice for those interested in undertaking a rooftop garden.
- They offer a free class called "Intro to Hydroponics" on Saturdays from 10 to 11am.
- The Mott Haven location is their first, but a Brooklyn location is currently being established.
- No, Bronx Hydro is not a storefront dedicated to selling weed (although we're gunna guess they might have some helpful tips for growing the sweet stuff...nothing in particular gave us that impression, other than the fact that they seem quite knowledgeable about all aspects of hydroponics).
