Soil Free Method of Growing Plants Indoors
Growing plants without the use of soil is a method of indoor cultivating that was first introduced by scientists prior to World War II. Initially, some form of growing medium like sand, gravel or some other inert material was incorporated just to anchor the plant's root system. Today, this high tech, water culture uses only nutrient enriched solutions for cultivating plants indoors.
Hydroponics has become a very popular method for other soil free plant cultivation. For the beginning gardener there is plenty of good information available on the following:
- Controlling lighting for growth and budding
- Temperature and atmosphere control
- Mixing mineral nutrients and monitoring ph levels
- Nutrient flow techniques
- Creating a water culture
- Harvesting and curing of hydroponics crops
The right nutrients in soil free, controlled environments can create a high-yield water culture growing system for vegetative and reproductive growth of all kinds of plant forms. To learn more, contact us.
