In addition, this method allows you to grow plants in liquid, sand or gravel by simply adding some nutrients. Hydroponics offers amazing flexibility. Even if you have problems, you shouldn’t have a problem correcting them and getting your plants back on track. We explain and graphically display each process to help you understand how it works. In short, the idea behind hydroponics is to remove as many barriers as possible between a plant’s roots and the water, oxygen, and nutrients it needs to grow (and thrive).
What is the structure of hydroponics?
Instead, the roots of the plants are supported by substances such as sphagnum moss, clay pellets, perlite and rock wool. When the solution reaches the end of the channel, it falls back into a main reservoir and is sent back to the beginning of the system. Land plants may only be grown with roots exposed to a nutrient fluid, or the roots may be physically covered by an inert medium.
