So what is a Hydroponic Garden anyway?

A hydroponic garden is described simply as a garden without soil. The actual roots of the plants are placed in water without any dirt or soil. There are cases in which other materials are used to keep them in place with an inert medium such as gravel, perlite, or mineral wool. After intense research it has been discovered that plants don’t actually need dirt in order to survive, the dirt is just a way to get the nutrients to the roots of the plants as well as keep them in place, but plants can get nutrients through other means. With this sort of gardening the roots are placed directly in water where they are given the necessary nutrients through dissolvable form which is therefore transferred over to the roots. Just about any terrestrial plan can be grown this way. Today the hydroponic garden is very popular on a commercial as well as personal use. Also it’s primarily used for biology research as well as teaching as it offers a basic medium without any contaminants which may be transferred through soil. It’s quickly growing in popularity on a commercial level because of its many advantages. The hydroponic garden uses much less water as well as nutrients. The water can be reused and the nutrients because they can be closely controlled so none go to waste. Also it offers high, stable, yields and it’s very easy for pest control. Though this type of gardening is very popular commercially and scientifically, it’s also a popular choice for a home garden. The hydroponic gardens can be very attractive and have a very nice modern look, as well as are much easier to take care of, and of course much cleaner.
