Hydroponics is the method of growing plants without soil by supplying them with a constant nutrient solution. Despite the fact that this method remains fairly unknown outside of a small sector of the horticultural world it has in fact been around for a long time. It is a system that was used extensively in the hanging gardens of Babylon and has been studied extensively by scientists and horticulturists for the last several hundred years.Hydroponic gardening can be VERY complicated, with computers and sensors controlling everything from watering cycles to nutrient strength and the amount of light that the plants receive. On the other hand, hydroponics can also be incredibly simple, a hand watered bucket of sand with a single plant is also a method of hydroponic gardening. Most hobby oriented hydroponics systems are somewhere between the two extremes mentioned above.The "average" home hydroponic system usually consists of a few basic parts: a growing tray, a reservoir, a simple timer controlled submersible pump to water the plants and an air pump and air stone to oxygenate the nutrient solution. Of course, light (either natural or artificial) is also required.This book will introduce you to a world where you will see growing vegetables, herbs and berries in a different light. Forget those perfectly shaped, processed and pre-packaged products from your local supermarket, naturally produced foods are way more healthy and tasty After starting out with the expert blueprint discussed in this book, it will be a piece of cake for you to branch out into a large hydroponics garden full of delicious, fresh and homemade foods.Interested to learn more?
