Hydroponic : Let’s Plant at Home!
Hydroponic, by definition, is a method of growing plants in a water based, nutrient rich solution. The word hydroponics comes from two Greek words, “hydro” meaning water and “ponics” meaning labor. The word, Hydroponic, comes from Latin and means working water. Simply put, it is the art of growing plants without soil.
The concept of soil less gardening or hydroponics has been around for thousands of years. The hanging Gardens of Babylon and The Floating Gardens of China are two of the earliest examples of hydroponics. Scientists started experimenting with soil less gardening around 1950. Since then other countries, such as Holland, Germany, and Australia have used hydroponics for crop production with amazing results.
