Did you know Hydroponics Uses 90% Less Water Than Traditional Soil?
Hydroponics is the practice of growing plants with nutrients and water but without soil. The plant’s roots can either be in water or in an artificial medium (i.e. sand, gravel, perlite, peat moss, sawdust, coir, rockwool, etc.). Hydroponic systems are often used when the supply of water and farmland are scarce or among home gardeners with limited space or an interest in year-round gardening.
These systems are either open, meaning once the plant roots receive the nutrient solution the water is not recycled, or closed, meaning the solution is captured, replenished and recycled within that system.
