Hydroponics is a system of growing plants in a nutrient solution rather than soil. The concept is based around plants not needing to constantly develop root systems to seek nutrients. It also allows indoor growing and controlled fertilizer release. Many hydroponic systems are available to the home gardener in convenient kit form, online retailers also provide a wide range of hydroponics supplies including basic hydroponic systems or kits, grow lights hydroponic nutrients, pumps and heaters.
Many commercial food crops are grown using hydroponics systems. In the home garden hydroponics is a great way to grow green leafy vegetable such as lettuce, basil etc. Many tomatoes crops are grown using hydroponics.
