What is Hydroponics?

What is Hydroponics?

A method of growing plants without soil, in which all the nutrients are supplied via the water. A distinction can be made between hydroponic systems in which plants are cultivated without using a substrate (NFT, aeroponics) and hydroponic systems that use an inert substrate (rock wool, perlite, clay pebbles). The type of nutrient that should be used depends on the type of system.
