The Pros and Cons of Going Hydroponic

Posted by on Feb 10, 2014 in Hydroponic Garden | 0 comments

Hydroponics is a Latin term, which literally means working water. What it means to horticulture is the growing of plants without soil. Hydroponic gardening is an exciting field that offers solutions to several problems faced in the world of food production. For impoverished people who live in a terrain or climate inhospitable to agriculture, hydroponics offers a means of growing food. In areas where food is traditionally produced, but where fields are over crowded or stripped of their nutrients, hydroponics is a way food can be produced using a minimum of space and resources. Hydroponic growth leads to an increase in production over traditional farming in two ways. For one, hydroponic gardening just plain saves space. Plants can be placed...

The History and Growth of Hydroponics

Posted by on Feb 7, 2014 in Hydroponic Garden | 0 comments

Hydroponics means working water and comes from the Greek words hydro and ponos, meaning water and labor. Many different civilizations have utilized hydroponic growing techniques throughout history so they are not a new method of growing plants. Giant strides have been made over the years in this innovative area of agriculture. Throughout the last century, scientists and horticulturists have experimented with different methods of hydroponics. One of the potential applications of hydroponics that helped continue research was for growing produce in non-arable areas of the world. Hydroponics was also integrated into the space program as hydroponics easily fit into their sustainability plans. The research for their plans is ongoing. By the...

Hydroponics is the concept of soil less gardening. The word hydroponics comes from two Greek words, hydro meaning water and ponics meaning labor. This concept has been around for thousands of years and many countries, including China, Holland, Germany, and Australia have used hydroponics for crop production with results that are quite amazing. Hydroponics is proven to have several advantages over regular soil gardening. The growth rate on a hydroponic plant is 30 to 50% faster than a soil plant that was grown under the same conditions. The yield of the plant is also greater. There are many reasons for the drastic differences between hydroponic and soil plants. Root growth is stimulated in the hydroponic plants due to the extra oxygen....

Have you ever wanted a garden that would produce beautiful flowers and delicious fruits year round? You can if you create a hydroponic garden in your home. A well-balanced nutrient solution for your hydroponic garden is the key to success. The nutrient solution circulates around the roots of your plant and the formula will either make your plants happy and fruitful or kill them. The perfect level must be found for the plants you are trying to feed. The pH level for plants determines what type of nutrient solution that they need. Acid loving plants need a pH level below 7 while other plants need a level above 7 to achieve optimal growth. In addition, for optimal absorption of the nutrient solution, air must be allowed to circulate around...

Pondering the pH Factor in your Hydroponic Garden

Posted by on Feb 2, 2014 in Hydroponic Garden | 0 comments

There are many factors that are important in hydroponic gardening and one of the most important factors is the pH factor. The nutrients, water, trace elements, growing medium, and the gases at the roots have different electrical charges that are all engaged in a constant battle. All of these items surround the root system to exchange positive and negative charges, which helps the nutrients absorb into the roots to feed the plant. The pH is the most important factor to monitor because the pH of a nutrient solution reads the outcome of an electrical battle between the roots and everything that surrounds them. The run off from growing plants in pots is the best place to measure the pH level. The protein and enzyme molecules in a plant are...
