Hydroponics Explained

We are Maharashtra's First Commercial Hydroponic N.F.T. Systems.

Hydroponics, by definition, is a method of growing plants in a water based, nutrient rich solution. Hydroponics does not use soil, instead the root system is supported using an inert medium such as perlite, rockwool, clay pellets, peat moss, or vermiculite. The basic premise behind hydroponics is to allow the plants roots to come in direct contact with the nutrient solution, while also having access to oxygen, which is essential for proper growth.

Here are some of the main reasons why we believe that hydroponics is a better option for gardening than the traditional soil method.

Why Choose Hydroponics?

  • Hydroponics is simple.
  • You don’t need a much bigger farm.
  • Hydroponics uses less water than soil growing - in some cases up to 90% less water than traditional soil-based agriculture.
  • You can plant 4 times the amount of crops in the same space as soil farming.
  • Grow all year long. You’ll never have to pack-it-up for the winter again!
  • Grow BIGGER, FASTER, STRONGER than soil-based growing.
  • Growing your own can be much cheaper than buying vegetables, fruits, herbs or flowers. It may not be long until your indoor garden pays for itself.
  • Grow organically – without pesticides and preservatives.
  • Gardening is therapeutic and satisfying.
  • Operating a hydroponic garden is educational.
  • Be the source! Produce on a grocery store shelf is NOT fresh.
  • Hydroponic gives much more control on cost. So you can sell on stedy pricing.
  • Be the source! Produce on a grocery store shelf is NOT fresh.
  • Hydroponic gardening is environmentally friendly.
  • With hydroponics, you avoid diseases that often destroy soil-based growing.
  • With hydroponics, you avoid insects that often sabotage soil-based operations.
  • Hydroponics allows for optimally controlled environment and growth.
  • With hydroponics, you can expect steady harvests.
  • With hydroponics, you can expect crops within 3 months depending on what you’re growing.
  • Hydroponic growing yields up to 20 times more than soil-based growing.
  • Hydroponics requires less fertilizer.
  • Hydroponics produces less waste.
  • With hydroponics, you never have to deal with dragging the sprinkler around through the mud.
  • Hydroponics is the clean way to grow.

How hydroponics works?

Most people in India have grown up on the idea that good water, good soil and lots of sunlight translate into good farming. That may have been true for most farmers, for a great deal of time. But new research and practice have shown that what healthy plants really require are good seeds, good water and nutrients. Plants do not really require soil. And plants need not sunlight, but spectrum. The entire process of photosynthesis is possible when the plant separates the sunlight to soak in the spectrum that it requires. Broadly, different types of plants use blue, red or yellow spectrum. Some use white spectrum as well.

Hydroponics is an excellent choice for all types of growers. It is a great choice because it gives you the ability to meticulously control the variables that effect how well your plants grow. A fine tuned hydroponic system can easily surpass a soil based system in plant quality and amount of produce yielded.

If you want to grow the biggest, juiciest, yummiest plants you can possible imagine, then hydroponics is the right choice for you. It may seem intimidating at first with all the equipment and work involved, but it will all seem simple enough once you get the hang of the basics. Start small, keep it simple, and your hydroponic system will never cease to amaze!
