Hydroponics - The Basics
science of hydroponics proves that the only things needed to grow plants
are water, nutrients, and a method of delivering the plants food to the
The soil itself is simply the backbone for the roots so they
have a stable place to grow.
Although hydroponic gardening can be done outdoors, most
gardens are indoors or in a greenhouse. Because hydroponic gardening is
so efficient, very little space is needed compared to a conventional
outdoor garden. In hydroponic gardening, you provide the exact nutrients
that your plants need by directly feeding the root system, without ever
having to stress the plant due to lack of nutrients or water.
Hydroponic gardening is superior to traditional gardening in
most cases. If soil everywhere was of high quality and if everyone who
wanted to grow plants owned the ground to plant it on and had the time
to cultivate it then hydroponics might be rarely used.
However, soil varies greatly in its quality and consistency.
When we plant outdoors in the best of soils, large amounts of fertilizer
are not needed for proper growth. Many of us, especially city-dwellers,
townhome owners or apartment and condo dwellers lack even a small plot
of land to grow plants.
Even if you live in the tiniest of apartments you can raise
fruits, herbs, vegetables and flowering plants. You can raise plants
hydroponically in pots, or individual containers and adapt your
hydroponic garden to any size space available.
