Hydroponic Gardening

Hydroponic is the concept of soil less gardening.  This type of gardening has been around for thousand years. The famous hanging Gardens of Babylon and The Floating Gardens of China are the two earliest forms of hydroponic gardening. Countries like Holland, Germany, and Australia have used hydroponics for crop production and they are very successful with it.

Hydroponics is proved to have several advantages over soil gardening. The growth rate on a hydroponic plant is 30-50 percent faster than a soil plant, grown under the same conditions. The yield of the plant is also greater.

The picture above was shown at an exhibit and I was so intrigued with it.
