Why Hydroculture?

Growing up my family had a garden in our backyard. I remember spending hours during the summer tilling, weeding, harvesting our vegetables. I hated weeding the garden, but I also loved the experience of eating what we put work into growing. As an adult with my own family, I wanted to have a garden but ran into a couple of obstacles. First, our yard didn’t really have a good spot for a garden without doing some major landscaping. Also between our work schedule, sports and other kids activities, we don’t have the time to maintain a quality garden.

One night while looking on the internet at gardening ideas, I came across some hydroponic vegetable gardens. As someone who likes to include a little wow factor, this was the answer to my problems.

With indoor hydroponic vegetable gardens you have to worry less about pests and disease, so often times pesticides aren’t’ needed. The plants grow faster and are more healthy since they are getting only exactly what they need. One of the best parts, I don’t have to do any weeding.

Why No Soil Solutions?

When I first started learning about hydroponics I was a little intimidated. There are many books, videos, and articles that I read about hydroponics that were very technical. I found it a little hard to understand. As I continued to learn, experiment and grow I learned that hydroponics really isn’t that difficult.

Plants needs some basic things to survive, and if your meet those requirements, it will most often grow to be healthy. I found methods that worked for me and wanted to keep track of exactly what was working for me. No Soil Solutions was created to provide quick information on simple how to hydroponics.
