Hydroponics systems are a method of cultivating plants without soil. Instead of obtaining nutrients from the soil, hydroponically grown plants receive their food from a nutrient enriched water source. There are many different techniques to do this, but all of them involve bathing the roots in this nutrient-enriched water in one way or another. Hydroponics systems allows the nutrients to reach the plant sooner, and more effectively which results in faster growth and higher yield. Inert mediums such as clay pebbles or rock wool can be used as a way of protecting the otherwise bare roots and give them something to hold on to. These mediums provide no added nutrition for the plant.
