By definition, Hydroponics is the concept of soilless gardening by using nutrient solutions in water. Hydroponics has been around for thousands of years; from the hanging gardens in Babylon, to the floating gardens in China.
The nutrients in a hydroponic system are mixed with water and oxygen and are sent directly to the root system. By having the roots exposed to what it needs, the plant does not have to waste energy sending its roots searching through the soil looking for the nutrients. Your plant can now focus all of its energy on growing faster and producing more fruit. The growth rate is 30%-50% faster than plants growing in soil; the yield is also greater!
