Basics

What Is Hydroponics

Hydroponics is the cultivation of plants in liquid nutrient solutions rather than in soil. It provides a more direct and efficient way to feed plants with nutrients.

The essential elements for plants to grow are:

  • Air
  • Food - Nutrients (Macro-elements and Trace elements)
  • Water
  • Sunlight

The environmental factors such as light, temperature, oxygen, carbon dioxide, pH, nutrients can be fully controlled. Hence, vegetables, fruits, herbal plants and even flowers are cultivated in an ideal environment determined by the grower.

Why Hydroponics?

  • No weeds
  • Small quantities of fertilisers used
  • No soil-borned diseases
  • Nutrients uniformly distributed to all plants
  • Efficient water use
