It’s All In The Name
Hy●dro●pon●ics (noun): The science of growing or the production of plants in nutrient rich solutions of moist, inert material instead of soil.
Hydroponics literally means “working water.” The name and the technique are nothing new—it’s actually a Latin-based word! Hydro, meaning water, and ponos, the word for labor, come together to describe this amazing gardening technique.
Home hydroponic systems let gardeners cultivate plants without soil. If you have limited space or are looking for an innovative technique, you can grow your own produce, herbs and more in a liquid nutrient solution without dealing with any soil.
Why Home Hydroponics?
The process uses less water, increases your growing space and uses fewer unwanted chemicals. With this type of system, you can expect to:
- Use up to 80% less water than in a traditional soil-based garden
- Plant four times as many plants than you could in soil
- Grow plants quicker than ever
- Enjoy a cleaner, more effective gardening experience that respects nature
