Hydroponics and Victory Gardens

Hydroponics has been around at least since the hanging gardens of Babylon were built around 600 BC. Simply put, hydroponics is the process of growing plants without soil. Hydroponics is also known as 'soilless' or 'soil-less' gardening. For the home gardener there are distinct advantages to growing hydroponically compared to growing in soil. Incorporating hydroponics into a victory garden is not only educational, but will quickly point out the advantages of soil-less growing over growing plants in soil. These include:

  • hydroponic growing uses less water than conventional in-soil growing methods including drip irrigation
  • there are no soil borne pests to attack your plants
  • there is no fertilizer leaching into the ground water as with gardening in soil
  • the plants get optimal nutrition and use the amount of nutrients they need for their growth
  • the danger of plant shock due to soil dryout is eliminated
  • uncertainties regarding soil makeup and porosity are eliminated.
  • hydroponic gardening is earth friendly

But getting started in hydroponics can be daunting. There are a vast array of hydroponic techniques, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. And there are literally hundreds of competing nutrient solutions to choose from, each claiming dramatic success. How to get started?

This is where  ArtSciDesign, LLC  and Plantechnics come in. We specifically designed our hydroponic kits to make getting started in hydroponics easy, fun, and successful. The results - whether you grow lettuces, mesclun mixes, herbs, jalepeno peppers, tomatoes, edible or ornamental flowers, or grasses such as wheatgrass, oats, barley, rye, or rice - will amaze you.
