The Power of Hydroponics Gardening
You must have heard your science teacher say something on what plants needed to grow. Water, light and oxygen must be what they told you or at least heard. There was no mention of soil as far as you could remember. There must have been a part of you that wanted to understand the logic behind it since all the plants you knew grew on soil and so you posed the question. They might have pointed out what a good question it was and that they would provide an answer only for both of you to forget and just like that it was history. Fast forward to now and you are about to know why soil isn’t part of the growth process. Allow me to walk you through hydroponics growing.
This type of gardening is basically soil-less. All what you need are water , oxygen, light and nutrients. Instead of soil substitutes suck as rock wool, sands , gravel and vermiculite can be used. If you have a porous container for the purposes of good drainage that will do nicely. If you are doing it indoors sodium bulbs can be of great help when it comes to lighting. All you have to do is to find crops that fit the description of whatever hydroponic growing you are planning to do and just like that you are ready to go.
The question that lingers in your mind is why choose hydroponics. if thirty to fifty percent growth rate of plants in hydroponics as compared to plants doesn’t faze you ,I don’t know what will. With it the root system doesn’t have to work as hard to get nutrients for the plant. This aids the plant to concentrate in growing upwards as it should as opposed to the root. With this form of growing pest , bugs and diseases are largely eliminated. Going organic with surprisingly rich harvests has just been simplified. The fact that its soilless means that the issue of land is taken of your back and you do not have to worry about soil erosion anymore.
If you are looking to do some gardening as a hobby then hydroponics has got you covered. Not only will you be enjoying organic plants that you’ve planted on your own but also year in year out growth. What better way to have your family involved in gardening together as with hydroponics. Its also very friendly to gardeners who are just starting out whatever the case your plants will love it. If you have always dreamt of healthy looking, mouth watering , full figured plants then hydroponics gardening will make it a reality.
