Get to know Hydroponic Gardening!|
Hydroponics is an easy way of gardening that grows plants
without soil, in a water/nutrient solution. It's economical, environmentally friendly,
and a sustainable way to produce veggies, herbs and even flowers. Hydroponic gardens can be
grown on your patio, in your yard, on the side of a shed, or even in your basement! Once you
Go Hydroponic, it's hard to stop!!!
Hydroponics, in my opinion, has several advantages over soil gardening.
The growth rate on a hydroponic plant is at least 30 percent faster than a soil based plant,
grown under the same conditions. The yield of the plant is also greater!
It's believe that there are several reasons for the drastic differences
between hydroponic and soil plants. The extra oxygen in the hydroponic growing
mediums helps to stimulate root growth. Plants with more oxygen in the root system
also absorb nutrients faster. The nutrients in a hydroponic system are mixed with
the water and sent directly to the root system. The plant does not have to search
in the soil for the nutrients that it requires. Those nutrients are being delivered
to the plant several times per day. The hydroponic plant requires very little energy
to find and break down food. Your plant then uses this saved energy to grow faster and
to produce more fruit and veggies.
Hydroponic plants usually have fewer problems with bug infestations,
funguses and disease. Basically, plants grown hydroponically are healthier and happier plants.
Hydroponic gardening also offers several benefits to our environment, as well as to your back. Hydroponic gardening uses
considerably less water than soil gardening, because of the constant reuse of the nutrient solution. I also build my units
at a work level that is pleasing to my body!
Also, fewer pesticides are used on hydroponic plants. Since hydroponic gardening
systems use no topsoil, topsoil erosion isn't an issue either.
Why get on your knees, get dirty or muddy, spend hours weeding and fighting off bugs, when you can stand up straight,
walk over to your happy healthy plants and pick the veggies to accompany tonights dinner!
