Indoor Gardening, Hydroponics Basics

Simply put, hydroponics is a method of growing plants without the use of soil. In today's world, hydroponic gardening allows you to propagate all types of plants in your home, within a controlled environment, regardless of the time of year or outside weather. All it takes is a small amount of space, little imagination, some spare time, and the right materials.

Your custom indoor garden can produce an abundance of fresh herbs, vegetables, salad greens and more - just for the picking. And don't forget all those wonderful flowers that thrive in a hydroponic environment.
