Q: What are the advantages of growing hydroponically?
A: Hydroponics makes it possible to grow plants in locations where the soil quality is poor or in places where it wouldn't normally be possible, for example in rocky areas, dry areas or on small apartment balconies. Thanks to artificial lighting it's even possible to grow hydroponically indoors. Here are some comparisons between hydroponic and soil gardening:
- Hydroponic growing requires less labor than growing in soil because digging and weeding isn't required.
- Hydroponic gardeners control the quantities of nutrients and moisture they give to their plants, so plants do not need to compete for nutrients as they do in a soil garden.
- Hydroponic gardening allows more to be grown in a small area.
- Hydroponic growers have complete control over growing conditions - light, temperature, moisture and nutrients.
