The Power of Hydroponics Gardening
What a plant requires for growth must have been pointed out to you by your science teacher. Water, light and oxygen must be what they told you or at least heard. There was no mention of soil as far as you could remember. You asked why since ever since you are born, depending on where it is all plants were grown on soil. They said it was a good question and said they would get back to you , you forgot and they never did. Though it was a while ago you definitely deserve to have your question answered. Allow me to walk you through hydroponics growing.
When hydroponics is mentioned the word that should come to mind is absence of soil. If you have water, oxygen, light and nutrients then you are good to go. Rock wool, vermiculite, sands and gravel could be used instead soil . If you have a porous container for the purposes of good drainage that will do nicely. If you are doing it indoors sodium bulbs can be of great help when it comes to lighting. All you have to do is to find crops that fit the description of whatever hydroponic growing you are planning to do and just like that you are ready to go.
Why hydroponics? That question may disturb your mind. if thirty to fifty percent growth rate of plants in hydroponics as compared to plants doesn’t faze you ,I don’t know what will. With it the root system doesn’t have to work as hard to get nutrients for the plant. This delegates the growth function to the plant other than the root. Pest , bugs and diseases stand little chance against your plants with hydroponics. Going organic with surprisingly rich harvests has just been simplified. Going soilless means no erosion and no pressure where land is concerned which translates to a very happy gardener, you.
If you are looking to do some gardening as a hobby then hydroponics has got you covered. Hydroponics puts you in a position of being a green planter and basically being able to do so at any time of the year. It can also be a way of bonding with your family with everyone having a contribution in the farm. If you are going into gardening without prior experience then hydroponics growing will certainly help cushion you from some of the many disappointments that you would have had to face with soil. If you have always dreamt of healthy looking, mouth watering , full figured plants then hydroponics gardening will make it a reality.
