Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What the heck is hydroponics?

Usually, we grow plants in soil. No surprises there. It seems pretty necessary, right? Hydroponics is growing without soil. 

You’re probably thinking, "But wait, how will plants get there nutrients and water? They need soil!”. You’re right, plants do need nutrients and water, but we can provide that to them dirt free by soaking the roots in a nutrient and water mixture. Hydroponic systems let us do that.

And guess what? Plants love it! Hydroponically grown crops grow faster, can be grown more densely, and are just as happy and healthy as their brothers and sisters that grew up in soil. 

But why bother? Well, maybe you live somewhere that doesn’t have good year round weather for growing plants, now you can grow indoors with your hydroponic system and always control the climate. Maybe you live in a city and don’t have a backyard to garden in. Hydroponics lets you bring it inside. Maybe you’re a farmer and the more you can grow the better you can provide for your family. Plants grow more quickly in hydroponics systems. There are so many great reasons to start growing with hydroponics.

We live on a beautiful planet and it’s amazing what grows right out of the ground. But, not all of us have access to the soil necessary to start a garden. Hydroponics opens up the door for anyone to start growing anywhere!
