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:
- Food - Nutrients (Macro-elements and Trace elements)
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.
- No weeds
- Small quantities of fertilisers used
- No soil-borned diseases
- Nutrients uniformly distributed to all plants
- Efficient water use

No sterilization of growing media required and plant nutrition is easily and completely controlled within the nutrient tanks.
No weeds, no cultivation, no soil borne diseases or insects. Allows for uniform water availability to plants.
Eco-friendly. In the Hydroponics greenhouse, there is no need for harmful pesticides. The produce is absolutely pesticide-free!
The growing medium and the nutrient solutions have recycle values.
Besides offering superb quality, taste and nutritional value, the pesticide-free hydroponics produce is also easy to rinse hence saves time and effort.
