Hydroponics is a popular growing method that has seen much success. It is the method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, in water, without soil. If a plant is given exactly what it needs, when it needs it, in the amount that it needs, the plant will be as healthy as is genetically possible. There are various types of hydro-growing including Ebb & Flow, Recirculating Deep Water Culture, Continuous Flow, Nutrient Film Technique (NFT), and Double Bucket.
