Publisher's Summary

If you answered "yes"to any of these questions, then keep reading because this is the guide you were looking for!

There are many ways in which plants are grown hydroponically; in some methods, the plant can be placed erect in a plastic trough, and then the nutrients are placed into the solution in trickles through the root. This process is called the nutrient film technique; this nutrient is more like a conveyor belt because it continually goes past the root hence giving to them all the nutrients they need. 

Also, you can grow the plant with a system to support the roots. This can be either Rockwool, vermiculite, or sand; these systems will usually act as a sterile option for soil. Aeroponics is explained as the case where the roots are suspended inside the container that is filled with humid air. This way, the roots are growing in an abundant aerosol that is clouded with minerals. You can grow virtually any plant in the water culture, but then some plants will do better than some other plants; plants such as lettuce, herbs, and tomatoes would do well when planted in a hydroponic system. 

Plants mainly grow with the help of a process called photosynthesis. They use sunlight and chlorophyll to convert water and carbon dioxide into oxygen and glucose. There's no implicit or explicit mention of soil anywhere in the process, and therefore, it could be concluded that plants only need nutrients and water to survive. Water and nutrients can easily be obtained from soil or any other source or medium. 

Hydroponics is a process by which plants are grown without using any soil. The procedure involves the use of a water solvent along with a mineral nutrient solution, which aids in the efficient intake of various nutrients by the plant. This whole process is a subset of hydroculture.

This book includes:

  • What hydroponics is and its history
  • THe advantages and disadvantages of hydroponics
  • Best tips on how to start your journey with hydroponics
  • How to choose plants for your hydroponic garden
  • Proven life hacks on how to grow great plants!
  • Solutions to common hydroponics problems!

Hydroponics has not only emerged to be a boon for human beings but also for the environment. It's a boon for the environment in the sense that it doesn't promote the use of any pesticides or harmful chemicals that can affect or contaminate environmental surroundings. Hydroponics is the only way you'll have the ability to grow economically sustainable organic food.
