Hydroponics at a Glance

Hydroponics allow for accelerated growth. But how is it done?

All plants need water, light and nutrients. Normally soil provides nutrition but in the hydroponic method water and nutrition is provided by a nutrient solution. A container holds both the solution and the plant and the solution is circulated with a pump.

The plant is stabilized an inert material such as gravel or by a structure such as a lid on the container with a hole through which the plant grows. The material or container must block the liquid from light to prevent algae growth.
