The Basics of Hydroponics

Recently, we posted a blog that discussed the benefits of a hydroponic growing system (“Green and soil free”). In a nutshell:

 

  • They use 1/10th of the water; no water is lost to evaporation.
  • They use a fraction of the minerals.
  • They use 1/3 to 1/4 of the space that traditional agriculture uses.
  • They have no media to dispose of.
  • They have little or no waste to contaminate the environment.
