What is Hydroponics?


Hydroponics is the practice of growing plants without soil.  There are many benefits to this practice including faster grow rates and a higher yield than traditional soil growing practices.

Hydroponic growing feeds ultra nutrient rich water directly to the roots of the plant.  Feeding nutrients directly to the roots allows the plant to focus less energy on growing a root system and more energy on developing the stems and leaf structures.  A nutrient rich powder or solution is added to the water to provide all the nutrients the soil needs.This practice is also more beneficial to the environment.  Hydroponic gardening uses less soil and water than traditional gardening.

The first consideration when starting a home hydroponic garden is what you will plant.  There are different set-ups and sizes that are optimal for different plants.  Choosing wisely in the beginning stages will reduce frustration in the long run.

Hydroponic gardening can be VERY complicated, with computers and sensors controlling everything from watering cycles to nutrient strength and the amount of light that the plants receive.

On the other hand, hydroponics can also be incredibly simple, a hand watered bucket of sand with a single plant is also a method of hydroponic gardening. Most hobby oriented hydroponics systems are somewhere between the two extremes mentioned above.

The “average” home hydroponic system usually consists of a few basic parts: a growing tray, a reservoir, a simple timer controlled submersible pump to water the plants and an air pump and air stone to oxygenate the nutrient solution. Of course, light (either natural or artificial) is also required.
