Hydroponics

 

 

Hydroponics is the process of growing plants in sand, gravel, or liquid, with added nutrients but without soil.

Hydroponics: Advantages and Disadvantages

Advantages:

  • You can grow anywhere.
  • Uses 20 times less water than soil based gardening.
  • Your environment is sterile, which means no pesticides.
  • You’ll use 20% less space for growing.
  • The system water can be reused, allowing you to conserve water.
  • You can have complete control over nutrient balance by using Dyna-Gro formulas.
  • No soil setup and testing hassles.
  • Harvesting is easier.
  • No mulching, tilling, changing of soil and weeding
  • You can grow year round.

Disadvantages:

  • Putting together a hydroponic system isn’t cheap.
  • Constant supervision is required.
  • Hydroponic systems are vulnerable to power outages. In the event of a power outage that outlasts your generators you will be manually watering your garden.
  • Micro-organisms that are water-based can creep in rather easily.
  • Growing a hydroponic garden demands technical expertise.
  • Production is limited compared to field conditions
  • If a disease appears all plants in the container will be affected.
  • Without soil to serve as a buffer if the system fails plant death will occur rapidly.
