Hydroponics or better known as container gardening, is growing plants in small containers without the use of soil, water, or any type of nutrients. Hydroponics systems contain a growing medium, the nutrient solution, and some type of lighting device such as fluorescent or electric. The nutrient solution is prepared by mixing water, perlite, vermiculite, or silica sand into a sealed plastic bag, then adding an appropriate amount of organic or inorganic material.
There are a lot of people who are already using hydroponic units and experiencing good results. You can try one yourself; it’s really easy, and you can immediately see the results in just a few days. Just remember to follow the proper procedures and guidelines, and you’ll surely enjoy healthy, tasty fruits and vegetables right in your very own home. All you need to do is to set up the system, making sure that all the components are well-placed and securely in place before placing your first vegetable in it.
