Hydroponics is a specialized type of gardening that grows plants in soil-free nutrient solutions, allowing the roots to have direct access to essential nutrients and oxygen. Plants grown using a hydroponic system typically have an increased growth rate and larger, more vibrant blooms. Additionally, hydroponic gardening is economical and environmentally friendly, and can be done indoors year-round, no matter your climate.
All your hydroponic garden needs is a system, water, light, seeds and nutrients. You’ll grow more in shorter time than traditional gardens, without the bugs and dirt. Although it seems daunting at first, even the most beginner gardener can feel comfortable using a hydroponic system.
