Doctor Ponic 2017: Important Facts and Tips About Hydroponics Hydroponics refers to the process of growing plants without soil but rather using liquid, sand, gravel, or any other mediums with added nutrients. Hydroponics is derived from the Latin word “hydro” or water and “ponos” or labor. The two earliest examples of hydroponics are The Floating Gardens of China and Gardens of Babylon which are soil less gardening that has been existing for thousands of years. In the 1950s, countries such as Germany, Holland, and Australia had started experimenting soil less gardening that gained successful results. The main principles of hydroponics include increased oxygen levels into the plant’s root zone, and liquid feed that is directly delivered to the roots. These factors resulted in increased growth rates and yields as compared to conventional soil gardening. There are a lot of reasons why hydroponic gardening is better of as compared to soil gardening. In hydroponics gardening, more plants are usually grown with the same amount of space as compared to conventional soil gardens. Instead of plant roots searching or stretching for nutrients, they are readily absorbed so plants grow healthier. The primary benefit of hydroponic gardening is providing seeds and plants with higher oxygen levels, and hydroponic gardens are usually stacked for increasing space efficiency. A hydroponic plant grows faster about thirty to fifty percent faster as compared to a soil plant which is both similarly grown under the same conditions. Hydroponic gardening provides more nutrients and oxygen to plants which are helpful in stimulation of root growth leading to faster growth. Hydroponic plants directly receive the mixture of nutrients and water which are delivered several times per day for a healthier and faster growth. These are turned into saved energy and then utilized later for plants to grow faster, producing more fruit. Hydroponic plants are generally happier and healthier plants because they have fewer issues and problems such as fungus, bug infestations, and diseases. Enrionmentally speaking, hydroponic plants provide a lot of benefits to our environment using less water than soil gardening, with fewer pesticides are used in producing crops. Whenit comes to the medium, the most commonly used are hydro corn and rock wool, and other types include perlite, vermiculite, and sand. The primary purpose of using a medium or your hydroponic garden is for providing support and aeration to your plants for channeling the nutrients and water into the roots.
