Hydroponic Gardening – Advanced Way To Grow Plants
Gardening at home has always been a pleasure for some, and a pain for others. For some, the thought of getting dirt in their fingernails and flooring, working with earthworms, and digging through smelly manure, provides a certain ‘joie de vivre’ that others may find unappealing.
Other people, may want gardening to be less of an arduous task, yet still, wish to have the benefits of fresh greens grown within plucking distance. For people who want to get their greens without having to deal with dirt (and the subsequent problems that inevitably ensue), fear not! Gardening in Hydroponics may prove to be an interesting proposition for you.
In soil, we usually wash away the dirt accumulated from gardening with water. However, avoiding soil and working entirely with clean water, is a common feature of a good hydroponic system design. In this method, plants are rooted in water, not soil. This water is recirculated using a pump and a tank – ensuring that not a single drop is wasted. Most importantly, hydroponic gardening usually manages to produce far superior results (in terms of nutrition, size, aroma, and taste) than traditional soil farming. All this, while keeping your hands clean, and rarely having your back hurt from the unavoidable tilling and toiling with soil…ing.
Today, Hydroponics has grown rapidly (no pun intended) across the country and is becoming a household name. Metro cities like Hyderabad, Chennai, Bangalore, Delhi, and Gurgaon to name a few, are slowly becoming hydroponic hubs both for home gardening, and large-scale commercial farming.
In the months and years to come, you would most certainly start seeing fresh, green hydroponic produce, either in your backyard or beautifully packaged on your nearest retail shelf.
