About Hydroponics

:: About Hydroponics ::

The word, Hydroponic, comes from Latin and means working water. Simply put, it is the art of growing plants without soil. Hydroponics can play a vital role in changing the way we think about plant growth and may well be the future of gardening and farming. Not only do plants grow without soil, they often grow a lot better with their roots in water instead.

In Hydroponics farming water is enriched with well-balanced nutrients which are essential for plant growth and better yield. In this farming system plants take nutrients through water using sun light they produce the output.

Why Use Hydroponics?

If you give a plant exactly what it needs, when it needs it, in the amount that it needs, the plant will be as healthy as is genetically possible. With hydroponics this is an easy task; in soil it is slightly more difficult.

Using hydroponics gives faster growth rates and bigger crops.  Plants in a hydroponic system grow more quickly because they have food and water available to them all the time. They produce bigger crops because they can devote their energy to producing their crop rather than producing large roots such as would be needed in soil to seek out water and nutrients. Hydroponically-grown plants have smaller root systems because the roots do not need to go out looking for nutrients and water. Some systems use an inert growing medium to support the plant.

Supremacy of Hydroponics

  • Nutrients - Complete control over nutrient balance.
  • No Yard Needed - Create a hydroponic garden in any indoor space.
  • Water-Saving - Hydroponic gardens use up to 2/3 less water.
  • Affordable - Get started on a very low budget, and save on any size of project.
  • Higher Yields - Hydroponic gardens are far more productive for their size.
  • Better Results - Hydroponics produces better tasting, more nutritional results.
  • Year Round Growing - With hydroponics, you control the season.
