Hydroponics is, simply put, growing plants without soil. All plants have the same basic needs whether they are grown in soil or not. Yet soilless gardening is much more exacting than traditional gardening. In this six-page publication you will learn the physiology of the plant and the basics of the hydroponic system: substrate, water, light, temperature, and nutrients necessary for plant growth. Includes tables of nutrients and detailed illustrations of basic hydroponic systems, as well as recommendations for getting started with a small hydroponic project.
