How to Benefit from Hydroponic Indoor Gardening
If all the talk of pesticides and ground water pollution has got you worrying, then switch to growing plants hydroponically today.
Hydroponics is the science of growing plants without any soil.
Plants are instead grown in water that is infused with all nutrients
essential for growth. Almost every plant can be grown by this method.
Hydroponics faced some early criticism when the method was used to grow marijuana at home. The technique is getting popular by the day amongst growers as it has many advantages over conventional methods of growing crops.
• Since you will be in full control of the water medium for the plants, you can exactly determine the nutrient level and the pH value of water.
• There are no pests in water and the other pathogens that pose a danger to the plants find it hard to survive in water
• There is less pressure on the roots to search for nutrients when plants are grown in water. They do not grow long and wide and thus help in saving energy
When plants are grown in water, they need lesser space and can be cramped together. An ideal indoor cramped growing set up can be established easily
When calculated in actual numbers, plants being grown by Hydroponics only use 10% of the water used in conventional farming.
So definitely there is great advantage of Hydroponic Indoor Gardening.
