Frequently Asked Questions

Hydroponics farming is the process of growing plants with the help of water-based nutrient solution. It is a method of growing plants without soil.

There are many benefits of choosing hydroponics like faster plant growth, requires less effort, provides more flexibility, requires less space, and produces better crops. Hydroponics is a right choice for availing multiple benefits.

There are multiple ways to design a hydroponics system.

  • Deep Water culture
  • Nutrient film technique
  • Aeroponics
  • Wicking
  • Ebb and flow
  • Drip system

Hydroponics farming is a sustainable form of farming because of the benefits it provides.

  • Consumes less water
  • No dependency on soil and climate
  • Lowest use of chemicals and fertilizers
  • Greater adaptability
  • Faster yields in lesser period

A hydroponic system provides all the necessary elements for the growth of the plants. It uses inert growing mediums like rock wool, peat moss, perlite, etc for plant growth.

Not at all. Hydroponics is not at all complicated. It is a very simple process with a number of benefits.

Some varieties of lettuce like the bib, butter crunch, romaine, etc. Herbs like peppermint, basil, oregano, spearmint, etc. Greens like spinach, kale, mustard greens, and watercress grow very fast.

No, hydroponics needs the same seeds that you use in traditional farming, but in a cleaner format.

Plants grown in hydroponics have all the essential nutrients available for their growth. In traditional farming, micro nutrients are often locked away in the soil and the plants cannot take full advantage of the minerals. Plants grown in hydroponics are far better in taste, color, and nutritional value.

Hydroponics farming can be as simple and not as expensive as you want it to be. With little investment, you get a good return in the form of a good harvest.
