Hydroponics at The Organic Garden Center

Hydroponics (From the Greek words hydro, water and ponos, labor) is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, in water, without soil. Terrestrial plants may be grown with their roots in the mineral nutrient solution only or in an inert medium, such as perlite, gravel, mineral wool, or coconut husk.

Researchers discovered in the 19th century that plants absorb essential mineral nutrients as inorganic ions in water. In natural conditions, soil acts as a mineral nutrient reservoir but the soil itself is not essential to plant growth. When the mineral nutrients in the soil dissolve in water, plant roots are able to absorb them. When the required mineral nutrients are introduced into a plant's water supply artificially, soil is no longer required for the plant to thrive. Almost any terrestrial plant will grow with hydroponics. Hydroponics is also a standard technique in biology research and teaching.

With the uncertain economy, people are spending more time at home. Additionally, people are rediscovering hobbies and trying new ones. Indoor organic gardening happens to be one of the fastest growing hobbies in today’s society. Sustainable environmental awareness is also a topic that gets significant attention. With all the chemicals and pesticides that imbed the produce we consume, organic awareness is gaining momentum.

Proper equipment, supplements and lighting are the key factors in successful indoor gardens. Imagine growing fresh, toxic-free herbs and spices to add to a gourmet home cooked meal. Imagine growing a tomato in a vertical garden, free from pesticides and chemicals. Orchids and other flowering plants are easier to grow with proper nutrients and lighting. You can bring in your favorite plants from outdoors and continue to keep them until the next season…or you can get a head start on the Spring growing season by starting the seedlings indoors while it is still cold outside.

Our Goal is simple: Using technology to make our thumbs green.

“One Stop Shopping” for all your indoor gardening needs.
